Yesterday a site I just setup got 4k+ hits in a short amount of time. 

On the page I had a list module. And this didn't work very well.

I got:

"Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 32768000) (tried to allocate 77 bytes) in /home/drm24/public_html/libraries/cck/base/list/list_inc_list_items.php on line 84"

How can I make sure this dosn't happen again the next time we get the same (and higher) boost in visitors?

Hi Kenneth,

You need to optimize your search. 

Check about matches, when you can push "exact" (Try to not use "like" in the SQL query, display it to check).

If it's a module I suppose you just need to display a maximum of predefined items (3, 5, 8, 10...). Edit the search configuration and push a limit to this maximum.

Check field values which are displayed: if you have "dynamic" field such as select dynamic replace it by a field alias (with text type) only in the content view.
