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.

security/sandsifter: update to version 1.03

This version is based on a fork of the original repository (which was
itself a fork) and is the same fork that Debian and Ubuntu use. The
previous repository is no longer under development.

Some binaries have been renamed by the new upstream.

Extend pkg-messsage with some more usage instructions.

The sandsifter audits x86 processors for hidden instructions and
hardware bugs, by systematically generating machine code to search
through a processor's instruction set, and monitoring execution for
anomalies. Sandsifter has uncovered secret processor instructions from
every major vendor; ubiquitous software bugs in disassemblers,
assemblers, and emulators; flaws in enterprise hypervisors; and both
benign and security-critical hardware bugs in x86 chips.
