    How many requests do you get a day? I found that we simply produce too much data, and have the database retention set to a month to reduce system load.

    He's a good chap is our Lyndon.
    It is possible to change how SATA drives are seen by the OS in the BIOS usually (is this a dell?) - but you will possibly need to reinstall, as it changes how the kernel letters the drives... if you felt up to the job you could probably hand-hack it tho

    Not sure off the top of my head, but we do regularly have over 300 PCs on at a time....

    Is this post db updates? I know you were one of the earlier adopters...

    yeah it was tom.. Lyndon's cleared the DB and forced it to rebuild the schema

    Email from Support:

    Hi,
    Just to confirm our conversation we found issues with the database and decided to rebuilt with the new schema. We also adjusted the prune settings and free space settings so that it's not freeing up space quite as soon and to stop the database growing. We also found the Hard disk to be quite slow causing the load average to increase, this looked to be caused by the server being configured in a "legacy ide" mode and would recommend at some stage to see if the bios can be configured to a SATA or RAID setting instead, though would unfortunately need a re-install. However the Smoothwall has been running for some months and only recently had issues, so I suggested as you have a fast internet connection to reduce the web proxy cache from 1500 to 50M in order to reduce the disk access,

    Any questions or queries please let us know,

    I'm running a new install on a physical box so it's difficult to compare. My old virtualisation hosts didn't have the VT extensions so I took a heavy hit on my VM smoothwall box. This was much improved on new servers, although the DB updates did help on the old box.
