You might have noticed a couple hours where Revora and other sites on the Icetex server were inaccessible (CNCNZ, Freedom Studios, etc). I was running tests to attempt to tune up the server to be in top form. Sadly I discovered that there appears to be a fundamental problem with the hardware that will not allow us to run 2 gigabytes of memory without upgrading to a second processor.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

We have a system capable of taking a second processor. At this point we do not have said second processor.

It depends on the size of the sticks, but it will run at least 1 gigabyte in dual channel mode using 2 slots. I think 3 slots would work, but that would be single channel.

With 2 hours of downtime I managed to get us up and stable with 2 gig of memory. I got it running in about 20 minutes, the rest of the time was spent on memtest to ensure that it is fairly stable. So, we now have double the available RAM, which should help with stability.
