As some of you have noticed, Be Communities has recently been experiencing some instances where the site was unresponsive or errored out. These instances have been intermittent, which has made trying to track the cause of this to be a bit challenging. We have tried a number of things to "fix" the issue, but it still persists. So, we have several things planned that should return the site's performance to acceptable levels. These include:
Some explanation follows:
Doing each of these things individually is likely to help in some areas, but doing all three (in steps) will help performance across the board. We still have some testing to do (on a "clone" of the site and not on the "production"... at least not until testing is successful), but we anticipate this will have minimal impact on site content, resulting in nothing worse off than what exists or can be accessed today. We also anticipate there to be a need for intermittent site outages. We will try to identify in advance of approximately when those might happen to minimize any interruption of service, but there may be emergency outages that are necessary -- still, we will do everything we can to keep those instances to a minimum.
Our apologies in advance for any temporary inconenience this may cause -- our intent is to provide as good a service as we can, and that is just what we intend to do.
