website slow

  • Just wanted to mention the website has been very slow for the past week. Wasn't sure if others were experiencing this. It actually started before the server changes.

    I'm on the US side and was wondering if others on my side are experiencing the same thing?

  • At the moment (5 pm GMT) the site is virtually unusable for me, and I'm based in UK.

    Tom did say the new server would help, but if this is the new server, then it is much, much worse than the previous one.

    Some serious server profiling needs to be done or setup multiple server config to distribute the load.

    It also possible - if I remember correctly - that Tom mentioned some DDOS'ing occurring, which may still be the case.

  • Slow is an understatement... it is taking 1 minute+ at times...

  • On some posting, I can't even post. I get time out errors. This started occurring shortly before the server swap.

  • Is it faster for everyone now? Our move to the new server has just been completed fully so it should be up to speed now.

    As of 6pm GMT, the site is very responsive. Not instant, but certainly not sluggish.

    Hopefully, the extreme slow-downs are now a thing of the past :)

    8:30 am GMT

    20 seconds to login

    10 secs to bring up a page link

    The previous server was always zippy at this time of the morning, so something is amiss :(

    Hi its working a lot better now; thanks able to comment now..

  • No problem!

    I did some performance analysis on the site, and the arcade is slowing the website down a little as well. There's a lot of room for improvement and the next version of the arcade will be more focussed on running faster.

  • Sluggish all weekend.

    As of 8:30 am GMT site is virtually unusable - 30 seconds to login; 20-30 secs per link.

    *UPDATE*

    10am GMT site responsiveness good; 3 sec login, 2 sec link response.

    10am GMT site responsiveness good; 3 sec login, 2 sec link response.I experience the same. Right now it is very slow again. But there are also times, where everything works fine. But the slow times are much more often.

    I couldn't agree more :)

    I only experienced very slow performance once or twice a day on the previous server, whereas now it seems much more frequent.

    If they are only using a one server setup, then that would probably not help.

    Hopefully Tom will fix it eventually.

  • I've made some changes to our server settings, should be a lot faster now. Is it better for everyone?

  • At around 2:45pm the site was almost unusable, but it seems to be quite nippy now.

    Fingers crossed!

  • Nice and quick here.
