Test by Instalanche

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