Message Center Performance Upgrades

Mon Feb 13, 2012, 7:40 PM by Heidi:iconheidi:


:star:  Message Center news to know!


Today we completed a three-month process of implementing performance upgrades to the Message Center.  With these improvements in place, we're able to increase site speed and decrease the amount of errors deviants may experience in their Message Centers.  Our Devious Technology and Tech Ops teams have been working hard to move Message Center data to its own dedicated database cluster. We made a considerable investment in servers with 96GB of memory and 12 CPU cores to handle 6 billion messages and 6500 queries per second.

What does this mean for you?  :sherlock:  

  • Absolutely nothing.  We hope.  The upgrades have already taken place and you shouldn't notice any change in your normal deviantART experience.  Eventually, you should notice an increase in site speed and a decrease in Message Center errors.
  • If we do run into hiccups, you may experience slowness and possibly errors in the Message Center.  Some of these errors may include: delayed deliveries, failed message deletes, and things of that nature.  Members who have more than 10,000 messages in a single Message Center folder may possibly experience some issues, including a few messages not being delivered or a few messages reappearing after they've already been deleted.

We are closely monitoring site performance in the wake of this upgrade.  In the event something goes wrong and major issues are detected, we will revert to the old system to prevent further issues.  However, things are looking good.  As they say, hope for the best and expect the worst.

~Heidi
