Title: Resource Limit Is Reached The website is temporarily unable
Post by: nula on October 25, 2014, 12:12:56 PM
I often have trouble accessing the site and recently get this message.

Resource Limit Is Reached
The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later.


Any ideas as to what is going on?

Yes.  A combination if things but at the bottom of it we have outgrown our hosting service so things are running slow.  I have put in an order for an upgrade, just waiting for a date for it to be implemented.

Site is intermittently very slow,  plus frequently still getting "Resource Limit" error.

Thanks I know about this and as ive said in my previous post here there is an upgrade on the way which will deal with this.  Please be patient.

If it's hitting bandwidth limits (though from the site response it looks like a memory/CPU problem) then it might be worth using CloudFlare (https://www.cloudflare.com) to run the DNS, as it caches images and serves them from its own CDN, as well as a bunch of other useful features (including some very decent security improvements). Also it's free, unless you want SSL support etc, and I've used it for a couple of years on a number of sites and would highly recommend it.

Pleased to see Theo's anticipated upgrade in the next 24 hours or so :Ph which hopefully won't trigger any new glitches or bugs! Once things have settled, could admins please look at the attachment filesize limits, which are arguably now out of date for images in particular. This assuming Melnet remains adequately funded?

I think the limit is 250k, which is enough for a far bigger image than most computer screens in more than adequate detail for most purposes, if it's been resized and compressed properly.

That is what the size limit is based on.  If the limit on individual photos was doubled then members would still have to edit/compress files before posting.  If the limit where lifted completely then many would just post raw images from their cameras which would consume more bandwidth and file space with no great advantage.
What would be useful would be file compression on upload.
