Nzbmatrix Server Upgrades Completed

November 11 update: NZBMatrix has been down a few times since the new servers were put in place.  They appear to be having database issues.  With users receiving “Database Server: MySQL Connection Error: Too many connections” messages.  Here’s a list of Usenet search sites if you need a temporary alternative.  Also Newshosting offers unlimited Usenet and a free newsreader with built-in search for $9.99 a month.


Nzbmatrix has completed their recent site upgrade.  The update wasn’t a site redesign but rather new hardware to address performance issues.  As mentioned by the Nzbmatrix team their 6 year old single core servers weren’t up to the task anymore.  So they replaced them with new servers.  We tried a few searches and the site was very responsive.  It will be interesting to see how the site performs later as their traffic increases.

As always you can visit to see the current status for NZBMatrix and NZBxxx.  Along with their RSS feeds, API’s and payment gateways.  As you can see above all systems are go.  The next few days will be telling.  Our 10 minutes of testing went very well.  I’m sure the site was under less load than normal but the search results were nearly instantaneous.  Way to go guys!  Looks like the upgrades went smoothly.
