Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2018-03-08
    Affects: */php* */pecl* */pear*
      PHP extensions and modules have been flavored.
      People using Poudriere 3.2+ and binary packages do not have to do anything if
      they are using PHP applications.
      PHP modules and extensions may have change their names from php5- or php7- to
      fully versionned phpXY-.
      PECL extensions and PEAR modules package names have changed from pecl- and
      pear- to phpXX-pecl and phpXX-pear-.
      To rename an installed package to match the new naming scheme, for example,
      for the imagick pecl extension, run:
        # pkg set -n pecl-imagick:php56-pecl-imagick
      For other people, to build the PHP 7.2 version of, for example,
      databases/php-memcached, you need to run:
        # make FLAVOR=php72 install

PHP 7.1 and PHP 7.2: add TEST_TARGET to all extensions

This enables "make test" in every extension and eases
the test of changes to PHP.

I did ignore PHP 7.0 intentionally since it only receives
security updates and will EOL at the end of the year. Therefore
no great amount of work is expected for 7.0.
