I dont know if this is a yii issue, but in my application if they log in like 2000 usrers at a time the mysql database goes down.
It is the first time that I have this trouble, and it is the first big application with yii.
Any ideas or suggestions ?
2k users isn’t too many, even if they act totally simultaniously.
I suppose, you have read http://www.yiiframework.com/doc/guide/1.1/en/topics.performance already, so now it’s time to do some server optimization.
What’s the hardware and software used on server?
and btw what is in mysql crash logs?
