The Crash Mob - Come and get involved :)


Hey folks,

Firstly thanks to @SterlingWright for the name!

You are invited to come and crash our dev server. The purpose of this is so that we can monitor performance and begin to build an idea of limitations and requirements.

We will of course be monitoring the server performance, and after we have some details, we will happily share them with you.

So, please come, hang out, help yourself to the snacks and drinks laid out, and stress our gear out :slight_smile:

** UPDATE: The stress test has been completed. Thank you all who turned up throughout the day :slight_smile: **

(We had hoped for 11am, but alas, a new server version became available)

Thanks guys!


Aw shame, I’m traveling right now. Hope you guys hit over 50 :slight_smile:


We’ll leave it open for a good few hours to let everyone get stuck in :smiley:


Is it possible to sticky this for the day, please ?


Access is now public;

Connection details can be found here:


The stress test is still going, people, come and join us.


Stress Test

So far we’ve got a lot going on, Server load is still less than 2% which means we need more; @Judas can’t accomplish this on his own

A big thanks to those who are in with us at the moment, including @MichelleLeckrone @onionpencil @KevinMThomas @thoys @SamBlaylock



  • 8 users hosted.
  • Average Bandwidth per User: 1.8Mbps per user
  • Load Average: 122% ( out of 400% due to quad core processing)

Server Specs

  • Operating System: CentOS 7
  • Supermicro 504-203B
  • Intel Atom 4x 2.4ghz(Turbo 2.6 ghz)
  • 8GB Ram
  • 1TB SATA Drive
  • Gigabit Connection


122% Load? Isn’t that quite much?


It’s up to 400% due to the quad-core processor, and this was after things escalated with physical objects galore, popcorn makers etc, so it’s within a safe threshold.


Rats, I had to be offline and missed this party.
Hope it produced some useful intel!


Yes we will post some more data next week with some screenshots. Thank you anyway, the thought actually counts. :slight_smile:
