Record traffic, new server in NGS rotation

We’re currently seeing record levels of traffic right now. Since the beginning of August our traffic has gone from 9M hits per day to 14M hits per day today, which is a significant increase in traffic. Fortunately our servers were able to handle the extra load, but we started getting near capacity.

Yesterday I started working on taking one of the servers from the classic site and moving it into the NGS cluster. We finished this a couple of hours ago and we now have a maximum limit of 227 queries per second (qps).

If you find any spurious troubles with the site in the next day or so, please open a ticket.
