A few of the replies from that thread:
So if a thread in TATE has 450,000 responses and causes the database to be slow, it's slow for the entire EMB. Not just that thread.
I understand that you aren't seeing the slowness on the few times you're here and that's frustrating because there most definitely is a problem and I really wish you would experience it.
Here's a screen shot from last month showing almost 13,000 guests. That much traffic is a problem. That may as well be a "Denial of Service Attack" on the board, because that's what it does. It denies service.
Here's an example from November, during a game. This is what it's like when things are doing what we're talking about.
Again, I understand that you're not seeing these problems in the couple of times per day that you're on the board but you have to trust us that these problems are here. I'm retired form the military and am now a full time college student finishing a second IT degree alont with working on an MBA, so I don't have a job and am on the EMB all the time and at all hours of the day/night when I'm not in class or working on something for class... and actually, I'm even sometimes on the EMB while I'm actually in class lol.
Trust us on this one Dave, the slightest breeze and the EMB becomes very slow and soon thereafter we get "Over Capacity" errors.
"Over Capacity" errors when there's fewer than 200 registered members on the board, mind you. That's just insane.
In it we've figured out that the EMB is on a shared server with Invision with at least 3 or 4 other NFL team message boards. All sharing the same server resources and all sharing the same bandwidth.
so, yes, they are both hosted by invision...& the apparently share the same server...
