Performance Improvements

08 May 2010 21:00 | Posted in General | 4 Comments

We hope you have seen some improvements in the performance of Repository Hosting recently. Over the last couple of weeks we've made a number of upgrades and optimizations that should improve your experience with our services. One of the changes we made was moving to more powerful servers. As you know, we use Amazon's excellent EC2 service, and we just upgraded our servers from "c1.medium" 32-bit instances to "m1.large" 64-bit instances. This gives us significantly more memory, which had been a bottleneck earlier. Additionally, we have identified a number of slow actions in our code and rewritten them, giving a noticeable performance boost to the dashboard page, especially for accounts with many projects.

We are currently finishing up a number of new features and UI improvements that will be released soon. These new features are aimed at providing more efficient ways to manage large numbers of projects and users, and generally improving the user experience. They include a completely revamped dashboard. Expect to see the release of these new features within the month.

Great! We did notice better uptime on our account in the last weeks. Good to hear also that you are working on the UI. What I would really like to see in the dashboard is a global timeline of latest commits among all projects!

Thanks for the good service

Thanks for improvements and excellent service!!

@Jean-Philippe
I think it is already done in better way. just setup an twitter account with private followers (“Protect my tweets”) and from every project settings page redirect time-line to that account.

@nasir Yeah true, but I don’t like the idea of mixing twitter with my business data. But yes I must agree that there is already something for it and I like the idea of not paying for additional features like other services providers tends to offers (like deployments, code browser with comments etc etc). Maybe I could setup a small app of my own to gather the commits timeline with the XML callbacks.

So thanks @repositoryhosting for focusing on your main business : reliable secure cheap SCM hosting!
