Extending my Raspberry Pi server cluster

Posted 10-23-2013 at 12:36 PM by Pyplate

I've added another 4 nodes to my Raspberry Pi server cluster. I posted links to my site on Reddit and some other social networking sites. I'm hoping to get a large hit of traffic so that I can see how my server performs.

In the past my server has handled 2800 visits in one day. I'm hoping to break that record soon, and hopefully without my server slowing down too much.

Testing my Odroid in my server cluster

Posted 10-23-2013 at 07:10 AM by Pyplate

After adding my Odroid U2 to my cluster, I ran tests using siege on the front end of the cluster. There was an increase in performance, but it wasn't the increase I was hoping for. I logged into some of the Pi nodes using ssh and ran uptime to check the load. The Pi nodes weren't working particularly hard, and neither was the Odroid. I logged into the load balancer and checked the uptime and memory usage:
$ uptime
 13:30:04 up 1 day,  5:20,  1 user,  load average: 9.27, 3.52, 1.33
