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
  • 2011-05-16
    Affects: users of net/skype, net/skype-devel, net-im/skype, net-im/skype-devel
    Author: Ion-Mihai Tetcu <itetcu@FreeBSD.org>
    Reason: 
      All skype ports were moved to net-im/:
      - skype12: unchanged, very old version (for FreeBSD 6)
      - skype20: last version with OSS support, that used to live in net/skype; the
      DISTFILE is gone from the vendor but if you happen to have it, it would be a
      way of having sound w/o needing to upgrade your base OS
      - [RECOMMENDED] skype: currently at 2.1.0.81 and the best supported
      - skype-devel: currently at 2.2.0.25, sounds is OK, video doesn't work
    
      To run either skype or skype-devel with fully working sound you need:
      - to run fc10 (most probably, please report what you can do with fc4):
      (OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=f10,OVERRIDE_LINUX_NONBASE_PORTS=f10
      in /etc/make.conf for systems that doesn't have it as default)
      - In order for Skype to work OK, you need your kernel and modules to be:
    	- post 2011-05-03 in on HEAD
    	- post 2011-05-08 in on 7,8-STABLE
      The port tries to catch if your system version is too old, but there's a
      ~3months window where because of a lack of OSVERSION bump, this is not
      possible. So please check; and PLEASE READ THE PKGMESSAGE for setup details.
      For how to update your kernel/world, see:
      http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html
    
      IF YOUR OSVERSION IS NOT NEW ENOUGH, SOUND (ESPECIALLY MIC) WON'T WORK.
    
      If you run into problems, at very least we need to know the output of:
      $ uname -a; sysctl compat.linux | head -2; \
        grep OVERRIDE_LINUX_ /etc/make.conf; \
        cat /compat/linux/etc/alsa/pcm/pcm-oss.conf
      the skype version you are using and hardware details (eg. webcam, if related)
      I most probably will ignore any mail not containing this info since without
      it it's impossible to help.
      Please test your sound /video setup outside skype before blaming skype /
      mailing me.
