Offer a mirror to the site.
« on: April 18, 2019, 03:57:52 AM »
I tried to access the site now, but realized how slow it is ... I understand how difficult it is to maintain a free service.

I have a few servers left over and no use forecast for this year, so I would like to offer a mirror of pic2pat. Free.

Just tell me an OK and pass the specs that I release the shell access to a VPS.

Thanks for your offer, but it is not needed. The site is running on a dedicated server, 2,8 GHz multi-core with enterprise harddisks in RAID configuration, 48 GB memory, on a 1 GBit/sec internet connection in a data center in Europe. It is the only CPU bound application on the server with an average CPU utilization of 6% over 8 cores. I don't expect your offered VPS to provide a significant increase in performance compared to the current configuration. Main reasons for slow loading are the location of the end-user and the script which generates the PDF files. Due to the deliberate decision to generate PDF files with fully scaleable graphics this process takes a significant amount of time.
