Here’s an exchange I was CC’d on earlier today. It’s between our lead developer and our sysadmin (systems administration) expert.
They were discussing more ways to speed up our Project manager Dooster.net
Here’s what the sysadmin guy suggested:
“… plus let’s check the slow query log for any really humongous queries. I seem to recall some big ones that look like they were from an indexer of some sort – we’re running haystack? We may need to configure it to slurp data in smaller gulps from the db”
Let’s hear that again: “slurp data in smaller gulps from the db”
A lot more where that came from
