    So after researching the site lag we had been experiencing, I found there was an issue with the server, this required me having to rebuild the server . i.e. format and re-install the OS. This work has to be completed by a 3rd party, our host. the process usually takes 3 hours, however in this case it took around 12 hours and it took me a further hour or so to restore the site.

    It is now back up and running and should hopefully be a lot smoother and faster.

    please let me know if you notice any further lags or speed issues

    Dan

      Its till not working right. I am going to try a few more things.

      Fridays issue was caused by an attack from looking at the lfd logs, we were getting hammered.

      However that hasn't subsided which is a massive concern for me

      The reason it is currently slow is that the RAM is 100% consumed which is leading to high swap. This is making my apache rebuild slow, which is causing the RAM to be consumed. cyclical I know. THe spam Daemon is also getting hammered and consuming about 20% of server load.

      Essentially this is looking like something I may not easily be able to solve until I can stop those attacks on the site

        Assuming you've hardened the server and I didn't check

        mod_evasive (reduces DoS exposure)
        mod_cband (bandwidth control)

        May help with limiting connections per second, Assuming the issues your having are request based.

        Regards
        God

        cheers

        I hav CFS and LFD doing a fair bit of firefighting.

        Switched off wordpress for a while which improved things slightly, but have narrowed the issue down to mysql just consuming resources exponentially until it fully consumes all the memory and we go into swap.

        At least I am getting closer to the issue.
