> Were these tiles produced by ruby/api/wms/streets.rbx ?
There's a couple stages. First the request is received by mapserver. For each "layer" (streets, gpx, landsat), it makes another WMS request.
http://www.openstreetmap.org/wiki/index.php/Squid_Usage has a decent outline of the current architecture, and my thought on a potential improvement.

Both requests for streets and landsat timed out. The server is simply overloaded.

I laid on some thoughts on how to improve it.
There's one I forgot!! THIS COULD BE CRUCIAL. Apache is also too heavy duty for this job on the tile server. We'd get much better performance replacing it with lighttpd. Anyone have experience with configuring lighttpd?

I think mainly Ruby takes too long to do all the calculations and drawing commands.
