Finally got the server tested out under a full blown Instalanche, which beats any load testing you can do.Â Â I’ve received a few links from Instapundit since I got the new server, but never at a peak traffic moment.Â This morning I noticed my server was running a bit slow, and sure enough, there was a lot of traffic coming in from Glenn.Â Â My current settings were a bit too generous, and caused a lot of swapping, which is lethal to LAMP server under high load.Â Â Scaling my max clients back a bit solved that problem, and we seem to be holding up to the worst that Prof. Reynolds can throw at me.Â Â Not bad for a 300 dollar server!

Yup, that’s a full-bore Instalanche all right.
What LAMP stack are you using? I ask out of curiosity as a “P” language dev (in my case -ython).
The blog runs off WordPress, which is a PHP application.
