In summary, the PF server has been experiencing slowness and database errors since 2PM PST on Sunday, February 8th. The issue may have been caused by a high number of users online, but it has since been resolved. Autolinking to the PF Library has been temporarily turned off to help improve server stability.

PF Server Slow -- Sunday 8-Feb 2PM PST

Starting at about 2PM today, the PF server has been very slow, including some Database Error timeouts. Seems to be improving a bit (3PM), but still may require a server re-boot.

FYI.

Wonder if its something to do with a new record being set for the number of users online?

I'm still getting occassional db errors when clicking on a link to most of the forums.

And PF is loading slowly, even after clean files/cache etc.

Autolinking (to the PF Library) is not working.

Has it been turned off to help the server?
