[12:59:38]<botlfarm[m]>Hey all, Just an update on the 507 Insufficient Storage error from the other day. After contacting my host and tracking it down looked like I was exceeding my Entry Process allotment of 10. Any Idea if this possibly is a farmOS issue or I have something else running scripts somewhere? For background Im on a shared host server and I also run a very basic 4 page static website from the same account. Seems odd to be hitting
[12:59:38]<botlfarm[m]>these limits when there is such minimal usage.
[14:34:37]<mstenta[m]>@botlfarm: Huh. I'm not too familiar with how that works but I imagine that means you're limited to a certain number of running processes?
[14:35:13]<mstenta[m]>That could explain why you're mostly seeing the issue in the map loading... each layer is a separate request to the server, which could mean separate processes.
[14:35:23]<mstenta[m]>Or perhaps combined with traffic to your other site it's using them up
[14:35:38]<mstenta[m]>Are you still experiencing it consistently?
[14:35:45]<mstenta[m]>Or does it seem to work sometimes and not others?
[14:36:21]<botlfarm[m]>That's what it looks like. Every time I refresh the farmos dashboard I get a spike on the "entry process"
[14:37:00]<mstenta[m]>if you "toggle map" (to close the map) and then reload does it make a difference? (won't necessarily help when you want to use the map, but curious...)
[14:37:11]<mstenta[m]>(pretty sure the layers only load when the map is visible)
[14:49:48]<botlfarm[m]>Actually looks like it may have been something else on my hosting account also affecting this. I spent the last hour deleting old (what I thought were inactive things) and im no longer getting a spike when I refresh the page
[14:50:16]<mstenta[m]>Oh interesting!
[14:50:23]<botlfarm[m]>I don't see a difference with the map toggled or not though.
[14:50:25]<mstenta[m]>Could those old things have been using up processes?
[14:51:04]<mstenta[m]>Oh maybe I'm actually wrong about that (re: toggle)
[14:51:16]<mstenta[m]>Looks like those layers are loaded regardless
[14:52:21]<botlfarm[m]>possibly they could have been using resources, but i really only saw a spike when I refreshed the dashboard or areas page of farmOS. very odd but seems to be fixed whatever the issue was
[14:52:32]<mstenta[m]>yea huh...
[14:52:36]<botlfarm[m]>may be time to look for another host anyway
[14:52:39]<mstenta[m]>i wonder if it could have been combined with traffic to your other site?
[14:52:50]<mstenta[m]>mm yea, seems like a pretty low limit anyway
[14:53:16]<mstenta[m]>maybe it's time to take the VPS plunge! ;-)
[14:53:36]<botlfarm[m]>I think so, will fix my upgrade issue also
[14:53:36]<mstenta[m]>Linode servers start at only $5/mo
[14:53:52]<botlfarm[m]>I will check it out
[14:54:21]<botlfarm[m]>I guess that is the next thing I need to learn. how hard could it be....
[14:55:20]<mstenta[m]>One thing to consider would be leaving your website on the current host, but setting up a Linode for farmOS and just restricting access to it so you don't really need to worry about security
[14:55:34]<mstenta[m]>(public vs private)
[14:56:31]<mstenta[m]>could also explore hosting farmOS on a little computer in your house, and point a DNS entry at your home IP address
[14:56:47]<mstenta[m]>lots of options! :-)
[14:57:09]<mstenta[m]>just make sure you've got a backup strategy... wherever you end up
[14:57:54]<botlfarm[m]>My host was recently bought out and I don't like the new company, so I probably will move everything if im making the switch
[14:57:58]<mstenta[m]>or... leave your existing farmOS 1.x as-is, and start setting up a 2.x server ;-)
[14:58:44]<botlfarm[m]>not a bad idea
[14:59:23]<mstenta[m]>gotta run! happy to bounce ideas later!
