Awful Forum Load Times

What's going on? This weekend there was an outage, and things have been pretty terrible ever since. Pages take 10s of seconds to refresh...

    I keep getting Over Capacity screens -- is there a heavier than usual load lately, or is there a transition going on or something?

    Was curious as the "Over Capacity" links to a Vanilla status that says there's been no problems.

    I think maybe we have too many 1s and not enough 0s. Our bleeps are blooping.

    I'm having the same problem since Friday but only when I use Chrome Version 27.0.1453.94 m. My old IE8 at work loads just fine. Also, I'm having a hell of a time actually posting anything as well. It loads forever then just says Draft Saved.

    The forum has been painfully slow for me since the last maintenance, on both PC and ipad.

    I believe it's due to indexing of posts for the newly revamped search, as was stated by Mister Liquid in another thread. Though I could be wrong.

    That's long since done. Forum should be running at normal speed since Sunday evening.

    Yesterday evening and the one before that it was really slow for me. It seems fine during the day, but at about 5ish CDT maybe it starts slowing down.

    I figured it was because we're getting closer to E3 and the boards always get busy around that time of year.

    normal load times for a page for me are around 1-2 seconds (zippy), current page load times (if i don't get a time out) are > 10 seconds, which seems like forever, but is not, but is noticeable.

    It's dragging a little bit for me right now, ever since the evening started to settle in. Granted during the day it seemed to be fine.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    I have been getting over capacity pages also, and the occasional slow period; using chrome, haven't tried other browsers yet, but I may if this keeps up.

  • JaysonFourJaysonFour Classy Monster Kitteh Registered User regular
    Yeah, it's really chugging. I'm on Firefox and it seems to be just out there, taking its sweet time. It's the same way on my phone.

    Also pretty laggy on Chrome 27.0.1453.94 m, especially loading my profile pages. Best Of is also completely non-functional (blank page) since the weekend.

    Yeah, trying on IE and Firefox here and it's being really slow to load and access pages. Taking 7-10 seconds from initial click before page switches and starts loading.

    EDIT***

    And this post took about 20 seconds after hitting post reply.

    Yeah, this has been going on for me since the weekend. It'll be fine most of the day, but then in the afternoon everything slows to a crawl and/or I start getting "over capacity" messages for a few hours.

    This has been my experience every night since this weekend.

    Even tonight, it just started up a few minutes ago. Major lag on loading any forum page or trying to post.

    Posting, notifications, and page reloads have been crawling for me since the weekend.

    I will hit "Post Reply" and wait for 10+ seconds before it shows posted. Multiple times I hit the reply button and it times out showing a service error.

    Notifications never load. I've stopped using them.

    Page reloads take 5+ seconds.

  • skeldareskeldare Gresham, ORRegistered User regular
    Seems inconsistent. Some pages load fine, others take about 20 - 30 seconds to load, others don't load at all. Also I notice that more than often, it'll end up saving a draft at the same time I try to post anything.

    So things *should* be much less crappy, speed wise, from today onward.
    Also, Advanced Search is here.

    That is delightful to hear. And the speed over the last half hour is decidedly better than it was for the two prior hours.

    If you don't mind sharing, what was the cause of the slow-downs?

    Advanced Search required beefed up indexing, which was slowing things down a lot. Then we figured out some magical Vanilla tech to speed those up and reduce their impact on the ole' database.

    You know, the second someone said "I see a new search button," I instantly knew what the slowdown was.

    God. I'm scared of learning more about DB Administration.. yet I have this suspicion it's in my future...
