server slowness appears to be due to degraded disk performance on the host, following up with them to see if there's anything to be done about it
@chr cybre's hosting has repeatedly broken in various ways more frequently than seems normal for Cloud Hosting Providers and like, don't they have SLAs or something? i don't understand
@haskal digitalocean is definitely failing their SLA, but hetzner has been basically fine til now aside from an occasional short outage that kicked something of ours over. we are unfortunately getting what we're paying for, there, though.
@chr did the issues coincide with a backup window of some kind? I used to get this kind of behaviour periodically, and it took me ages to put 2 and 2 together and realise what was going on.
