I have officially downgraded the cloud cluster. It’s now longer using PHP7 or HHVM since neither was providing a stable environment for which we could properly operate Bigcloset/Topshelf.

Belle (front end server) is now operationally running PHP5.6

Belle, can be switched over to HHVM for limited testing as needed as we try to track down HHVM issues and fix them in code, but right now, the full/operational stack is as follows.

Belle (Front End)

  • Apache 2.2
  • Memcached
  • PHP5.6 (remi stable release)
Ariel (Back End/DB Server)
  • Percona 5.6 (release 76.1 Revision 5759e76)
Things seem to be operating within acceptable limits at the moment. I’ve had things switched over for maybe 10 minutes at this point. The site is still fast in places, a bit slower in others. It is DEFINATELY stressing the front end server more. Jumping the load average from under 0.5 consistently to over 2.0 consistently.-Piper
