Over the past week our data has been all over the place on the global graph.
This was due to a migration process in which we put a VPS up for a new database server, and it simply could not handle the load.
We have since then swapped out the database server with a new dedicated server which costs less, and will handle the load more efficiently (yes I said costs less, it’s because we’re awesome like that). Since swapping out the server data has started to look less erratic, and the infrastructure as a whole is a lot more stable.
