I'm not 100% sure but the "whos online" page seems to load up fine, at a time when I can't bring up "new posts" page for ages. As someone said before, it seems to start hanging when a new post it made, so maybe there is some odd SQL write issue, something just like the host itself has a bad sector on the hard drive causing the SQL to hang for ages until it finally makes the write to disk?

I got waiting for available socket A lot while the pages were hanging. Sounds like the host is overloaded ?

Seems like the host has oversold it's cpu/ram resources on the vps.

Typical for a lot of hosting providers to do that.

I've not been able to access for form at all the past 2 days :( a couple hours ago it wasn't working, but now it is. I just got nothing but "connecting" :? Seems others have been posting so not sure why its not been working for me, unless there has been some DNS issues somewhere ? Saying that I tried for form IP address and that didn't work either :?

Sorry this has taken me some weeks to find time to get around to.

Problem is definitely mysql hogging the RAM and tipping it over. I've run a tuner and reconfigured mysql accordingly. Please keep posting your findings.

I have used "Green Value Host" they seem pretty good server wise, but I opted for RamNode, their servers are awesome, but twice the price of GVH. Ramnode support seems really good in the couple of questions I tested them out with. GVH replied but they want to charge for any "real" support.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Yup same for me here too. Thing is when I look at top, there is next to nothing being used, however the entire physical RAM has been committed (somewhere) and mysql is running from swap. The numbers in top just don't add up.
When it goes bad, I see a huge amount of swap data appearing in /tmp.

I think somebody further up the thread suggested the VPS may be oversubscribed. I can only assume this is the case and I've raised a support ticket with them.

If it helps any, I have a VPS which has about 3 months left on subscription, that has a lot of RAM (512 or more I think ) 50GB disk if you want to try that out ?

Thanks for the offer. I may do, but for now I want to keep pounding traffic at the current server while my support ticket is open.

First successful login in the last few days... so still pretty bad.
Is it possible that one of DNS servers does not always resolve?

So this is what I see in top when the forum goes wobbly:

Unless I'm missing something, there is no real memory usage at all by the tasks on my box

I just thought, I was talking to someone the other day and he was saying those programs which display server stats have a bug, and it reports usage from the entire VPS (not just the bit you are using) so its possible that huge memory usage isn't even caused by anything you are running...

I would call that a feature rather than a bug. It certainly explains a lot as I can't make any correlation between the RAM usage and traffic to the sites on the box.
