Default Recent Visitors - for fun, for a day

Just for fun, I'm turning on the "Recent Visitors"* tracking and display - for a day.

I will apologise in advance as this will slow things down here (perhaps quite a lot) - but the information is so interesting (to me), that I hope everyone will forgive me.

It will just be for a day, I'll turn it off tomorrow night.

(*Recent Visitors is a display, updated every 5 minutes, of members and guests, active over that 5 minutes)

OH boy - this is not so good - darn....

I love the Recent Visitor statistics, but I can already see and feel the very negative performance impact.

We may not make it for the 36 hours ...

What a conflict for the ol' Bob - I love the numbers, but one BIG goal has always been to have the performance / response at as high a level as possible...

Well, that was very interesting, an enjoyable trip down memory lane.

I've turned off the "Recent Visitors" feature - sorry about the slow responses that resulted from it. It is very clear that beyond about 200 active users (at any time) the software really chokes.

FWIW - Sunday we saw a peak of 151 active - Sundays are our slowest days, but that number is WAY higher than I would ever have expected on a Sunday. Today (Monday, usually one of the busiest days) the peak was 259 - While an amazingly large number, it is actually lower than I expected (but I can think of a couple of reasons for that)

Regardless - we're back to the 'optimal' configuration, Recent visitors turned off, and everything set up to give the best response possible, given our scary big levels of activity.
