The issue is unfortunately more to do with sysadmin resources than
server hardware; there's noone with the time to actively manage the
server and make sure that it's running well. Any ideas for improving the
situation would be gratefully received.

Today there were some problems with some processes taking up a lot of
resources. One of the problems was the hackage search script, which has
been disabled for now.
