Have you ever considered Ceph? http://ceph.newdream.net/

I think this is what Dreamhost uses to back their 100,000s of domains. I've never used it before but it does look promising!

We had not seen that one before but will put it on the list to review. Thank you. Smile

Quick update: The Queue was still sitting at over 28,000 new requests as of this morning. It should have cleared by now, despite an influx of about 5,000 new requests per hour flooding in.

However, this is the first time that the Queue has been high enough to saturate all the generators since we made several algorithm changes in preparation for improved service level agreements for all users, focusing more on paying customers.

As it turns out, we had way too many generators dedicated to paying users. Once I scaled those back to something more in line with incoming requests, the Queue dropped to 18,000 within an hour. So I think things should be back to normal by tonight.

Once we have more time and have gathered considerably more usage data, we will implement a process to automatically optimize the provisioning of generators across user types.

Wow, OK. So that took a LOT less time than I expected. The re-provisioning helped knock out the remaining 18,000 already. So the Queue is all caught up now.

All things were OK and thumbnails visible after recovery.
But since this morning I get this message:
Bad Request. Update Your Code.
Do I miss something?
Thanks!

If you use stwembed=0 in your request, you should be given the exact reason why. To send a request in the browser, though, you would need to put your local IP in the allowed referrers list. If you can PM me with a link, I can verify this quickly for you.

However, the most likely reason for the error is that you are sending an embedded request with your &stwu "secret key" shown publicly. That is, technically, "bad code" and we detect that now for user's security.

Please let me know if that does not address your scenario.

I have to say I did not change the code.

It only works because I disabled the check. There were too many users who are sending &stwu with embedded requests. If you do not fix your code, it will break again once we enforce the check again.

However, we are planning to announce this code change, since it does affect a number of users.
