    Upgraded all my VMs, the exta diskspace for the database is great.

    But the nodebalancer I'm using is having massive performance issues which I spent a while troubleshooting other stuff since my ssh sessions where laggy/slow to the VMs.

    No slowness on SSH side for me. Maybe specific datacenter issues ? I haven't used Linode nodebalancers yet - prefer using Nginx or Haproxy for load balancing for HTTP/2 HTTPS.

    Out of the Dallas datacenter, which is where their website is hosted.

    Hitting SpaceBattles Forums and SSD Cloud Hosting & Linux Servers - Linode basically spins for ~30 seconds or more for me. But Sufficient Velocity* which is cloudflare => another linode datacenter is fine.

    From my SV servers, I can grab a page from SB fine, which makes me think it is an upstream connectivity issue.

    *SV uses a floating IP + nginx, not the nodebalancer.

    Seems Dallas gets it's fair share of network connectivity issues for Linode !

    Logged into my Linode control panel today and noticed the free upgrade. I knew this was going to happen after Digital Ocean made their plans more affordable. It was only a matter of when.

    Yeah competition is a beautiful thing :)

    Just updated this forum's linode - fast migration of node and resize from 96GB to 160GB took ~12 minute all up :D. Still stuck on same cpu right now Intel Xeon E5-2680v2. Disk upgrade came at a good time as previously on 96GB quota I was hovering around 77-89% disk usage. Now with upgraded disk quota, disk usage is ~40% :D

    Now all Linode needs are High CPU plans - I would love to see added to Cloud Server Plans and Pricing - Linode the following:
    • High CPU Linode 4GB 4 Cores 80GB SSD 5TB 40Gbps In 1Gbps Out US$45/month
    • High CPU Linode 8GB 8 Cores 160GB SSD 10TB 40Gbps In 1Gbps Out US$90/month
    • High CPU Linode 16GB 16 Cores 320GB SSD 15TB 40Gbps In 2Gbps Out US$180/month
    • High CPU Linode 32GB 32 Cores 640GB SSD 20TB 40Gbps In 4Gbps Out US$360/month
    One can only dream :D

    The increased disksize was very helpful. 72GB MySQL database was getting way to close to the limit of 80gb of diskspace. Especially with XF2 which touches the post table which requires a spare ~30gb of space to make changes to!

    It was fixed after ~8-10 hours or so, but the site was horrible unusable for some people. And since Linode's portal is hosted out of Dallas that included the portal for me!

    Woah and i thought i was closing in on my quota!

    Haven't looked into XF2 disk usage surprised to hear that post table requires that much more

    Adding another column can require cloning the table, and when you've got a huge table that take a chunk of space!

    Oh you mean for XF1 to XF2 upgrade process requires temp increase in post table related disk size and not that XF2 day to day running requires larger post table ?

    Yeah, the upgrade process is painful on a large-ish board since it touches xf_post.

    Guess need to be mindful for XF2 upgrades. Great time to have Linode bump up their disk quotas then :D

    Does anything need to be done on the CMM side of things, or will nothing break if I upgrade?

    nothing needs to be done on Centmin Mod side usually

    if nginx or php-fpm plays up, just re-run centmin.sh menu option 4 and 5 to recompile nginx and php-fpm after update. That's probably the only potential item
