Did the admins already put the script online to auto-clear the cache every now and then? They said that it'll prolly speed omni up >.>

I don't think so. You might want to email their e-mail address to make sure.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

And the bot is down again. It might be due to how slow Omni ran an hour ago or so.
it is only omnis fault if it posts in the irc channel once every 3 seconds "I died, hope that sorunome sees the bug and fixes it" or something like that, am restarting it, and this thing is a PITA
EDIT: I can't even look into the log file what the mistake is because I had to disable it as the log file grew too big and the bot crached due to no hdd space >.<
Add log rotating/trimming :)

That was done a while ago. There are speed increases due to it. Any slowdown is either google indexing the site or something else like that.

Last night apparently it was a Chinese search engine that did it. But Geekboy seemed unable to ban it (I think the IP range was just too big)

It probably changed IPs or something

oh I missed the post bot part of that topic and thought you were talking about OmnomIRC yesterday. Probably due to being on my phone. My bad x.x

Good to hear :). Was the problem really what you thought or was another cause found?

So I suggested this :
Quote from: #omnimaga
19:07 < Streetwal> also isn't it possible to make omnom use some kind of push system ?
19:07 <@Sorunome> but that would require programming :P
19:07 < Streetwal> like an smf mod that sends it a notification when somepony posts
19:08 < Streetwal> and then it sends a message to irc
19:08 <@Sorunome> but that would require programming :P
19:09 < Streetwal> that'd reduce the load on omni's server a bit and also fix the skip when two ponies posts in a 5secs interval
send it

It used to work similarly, so when someone posted, the board sent a notification to the bot. However, it only worked if OmnomIRC was hosted on the same server as Omnimaga, which is no longer possible without upgrading to 32 cores and 512 GB of RAM.

Wait, that means it wasn't an IRC bot back then? Because running an IRC bot on the server is still possible :) But i heard that that checking server-side somehow nommed tons of CPU ???

My suggestion was to send a notification from within whatever PHP script adds a post to the DB. That way it's CPU friendly. ;)
send it
