Since people demand a human readable explanation, I will explain it here.

At random interval (probably not- more likely that there is a certain huge wiki page being requested), the web server software would overwhelm the database software. The database would refuse to serve any new requests; At the same time, new requests continues to come in. The web server have no choice but to queue up all the new requests. As time goes on (within 5 min), there would be so much queued requests that the server grind to a halt.

This is likely a bug in the connector between the web server and the database. I am hoping that a new version of the connector, scheduled to be released today, would cure the problem. For now, I have made some setting changes and is actively monitoring the server. Finally, I scheduled the http server software to restart itself every 2 hours so that, even if the http server does get stuck, downtime would be minimal.

So far, things holding up pretty nicely (as in, my fixes are finally working and the server is not freezing).

I know it's been frustrating for everyone. Believe me, I am frustrated about this issue as well (I spent my last 3 weekends setting up test environments + compile each component manually to isolate the problem- doesn't work).

In any case, sorry about the trouble everyone. And no data is ever lost- everything is backup bi-weekly :p

Also, the current hosting company is probably the one of the most, if not the most professional hosting company I've ever dealt with. So don't be too hard on them :p

The release date slipped....

In any case, the server hasn't freeze for the past 3 days, so I am happy.

It's on his/her user page. The big boss is so reclusive we really have no idea how old he is, what gender, what race, what country he comes from. You may or may not have noticed that he's actually one of the relatively infrequent posters around here. I don't post that much, but in a sixteen months I've already posted twice what the Big Boss has in 4-5 years (or however old this site is).

No, I'm referring to an actual hotmail/gmail/aol type e-mail address that works even when B-T is down. I've used it many times, and occasionally actually got a response...

All your question will be answered! Just keep an eye on the blog during the 11th of April, a special post for our 5th Anniversary of Baka-Tsuki.
