    When there is a failed drive in a RAID set, it has to make up the missing bit which may affect performance. Also when the RAID set is degraded, the controller may turn off caching to safeguard the data.

    Aside from fixing the failing hard drive, I think the php sessions folder might have been overloaded somehow because it wouldn't load and couldn't be worked on. I just did a simple folder swap/reset and it seems to have improved the speed a bit. Can anyone else confirm this for me?

    We could probably speed it up even more if we optimize the databases again and get that hard drive fixed.

    The site is definitely loading faster for me at the moment. Good job, Taylor!

    At the sites I manage, I have this at the bottom of my footer.php:
    ?php echo get_num_queries(); ?> queries in ?php timer_stop(1); ?> seconds
    ...and that typically results in something like this:
    60 queries in 0.454 seconds

    Maybe you could add something similar here to help people see the difference between site speed and browser speed.

    It looks good to me.

    Keep up the good work.

    Excellent. Good to hear! Also, I tried using the code you suggested. The methods used appeared to be a part of the wordpress API when I looked it up. Haven't been able to find it in VBulletin yet. Still looking. I think it would be a pretty nice to be able to add that kind of a feature to the site. Perhaps echo the results in a HTML comment that can be checked when you view the source of the web page? Still trying to figure out where you can safely make changes to the code to be able to snag the time it takes to load a page and then display it. If you have any ideas which files I should look into, let me know. Most of the settings for VBulletin templates are stored in MySQL now, so it is a bit of a trick for me to figure out where to insert the additional code.

    I do not have a clue, but I did a search here...

    and found this:

    Who knows what that might reveal, eh?!

    I just use a Text Editor and put the code in there.
