Sometime Simpler Is Better

Two virtual machines, each with 3 cores and 4GB RAM, running CentOS 7. 
[Edit: Wait, Kururu is on CentOS 6.  Well, near enough.]

Kururu is running under OpenVZ:


While Rere is running on KVM:


Also, Kururu didn't have 3 cores and 4GB of RAM.  It had 1 core, and 1GB.  I changed it to take this screenshot - but check the uptime.

1 Pixy, just now I was trying to upload a bunch of images and got a lot of error 500's. And as I load your page, none of the images are loading.

I just got another one:

3 Sorry about that, the cache server ran out of memory.  Fixed now.

4 Found the problem - I was using the cache server as a handy place to store real-time stats, but they didn't expire, so over several months the cache would slowly fill up with out-of-date data.

Fortunately, the cache we're using (Redis) has a setting that just says "throw out the oldest data no matter what", so with one quick change I've fixed the problem for good.

Redis is pretty neat.
