Well, I think it's time to purchase another server again. See T1979#37483, T2335
mw1 and mw2 capacities are weak lately, causing intermittent 503s on wikis.
The other reason would be the jobrunner. Currently, it has been moved to test1 (mw1 almost got shut down because it), but there are still a lot of jobs and only one job runner doesn't seem to be enough. I think we would need to add another jobrunner to a potential mw3 so that the jobs can be balanced out.
Therefore, I think a mw3 should be considered to resolve mainly the intermittent 503 issue, but also the jobrunner issue.
