And an upgrade to SQL server as your Graffiti Backend!

here is the load time graph from yesterday, before moving the DB to SQL server:

and here is a screen shot of the same server, same hardware, but with SQL as the Backend:

yes, that image is only for the first 9 hours, but check out the avg min and max times, compared to the above. also, that 2% downtime is my fault. I needed to take the IIS instance down, and then had a config setting wrong for SQL in the web.config… I will keep my eye on this one with interest!

PS: the DE and AT times are a lot lower than the US times since this server is living in mainland Europe. the graph for when the server lived in Ireland is pretty much the same. I am not going to stick it up here, since I am too lazy….
