Simon,

>Wow, Groklaw is powered by Geeklog!

You should hang around on IRC more often ...

LinuxPlanet has an interview with the woman behind the site:
<http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/interviews/5176/1/>

She even mentions Geeklog there:
"Moving to the website and changing to Geeklog software opened up many
possibilities for a large, coordinated group effort."

We should have one of those sleazy "costumer statements" pages ;-)

bye, Dirk

I can't hardly go a day anymore before someone in my circle of techies 
mentions something about Groklaw.net running Geeklog.  I too am pretty 
excited about it but I think we should their popularity and those of 
other Geeklog sites to talk about scaling issues.  I know 
masosxhints.com does a lot of traffic as does groklaw.net and I'm 
interested how they have managed to scale Geeklog.  Groklaw has been 
/.'d a few times and is always up when I visit it.  Now, having authored 
my fair share of GL, I find this pleasantly surprising but I'd like ot 
know what they are doing.  Are they simply using beefy boxes and ISP's 
with fat pipes or are there some other things under the hood.  Any of 
you have an answers to this?

Don't forget about MacFixIt, probably the king of volume at the moment. 
  macosxhints.com is doing about 7gb to 8gb a day, with 1,000,000+ page 
views a month, and we haven't had any problems with Geeklog keeping 
pace -- pages still load lightning quick.

According to my config guy, he just "tweaked" php.ini and mysql.conf a 
bit, and made sure that the pconnect was disabled.  In addition, we 
threw a really big hardware box at it -- a dual Xeon machine with 2gb 
of RAM, and it's a dedicated server just for hints and the forum site 
(and a few very tiny family sites).  We're still running 1.37 (all 
security updates applied, I think), though I have 1.38 running locally 
and hope to get it online Someday Really Soon Now.

Our ISP (ev1.net) definitely has fat pipes, and provides a lot of 
bandwidth (1.2 terabytes), which is very nice. They seem to have one of 
the faster net connections I've seen (I've had four hosts in three 
years with macosxhints, mainly due to outgrowing all the prior 
providers). I think we'll be with ev1.net for a while -- until I can 
find a similar host offering dual XServes, so I can finally host on 
what I write about :).

If you want, I can probably get the php.ini and mysql.cnf files for you 
to look at...

Sure send them over, i'd be interested to see what you have.  Let me 
know which version of the MySQL conf file yours is based on (three or so 
ship with the distro).

Need to catch up with Marc sometime soon...haven't seen him in a while 
if you run into him maybe mention this thread.

Oh, and 7-8Gb...wow.  I'm poised to break the 3GB mark this month.  Nice 
to keep things in perspective.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State

unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
