    I really appreciate that you guys respond to Circus of Bug Reports and User Issues threads like this.

    You two rock.

    Not you tube.

    Never you.

    It's been pretty slow, with frequent but sort of random, timeouts. Using Firefox 3.5 current.
    (I'm sure everyone else noticed this too, and probably sent a billion PMs or whatever)

    Recently I've been having an odd problem, seems to have crept up during all this weird slowness.

    When I check my subscribed threads, one of the little buttons/lights that tells you if there's a new post (blue dot!) will not load. Instead it will just display the mouse-over alt text stuff instead of the image. Which makes the column extra wide, and everything looks weird. It seems to be just one of the dots, randomly...not like all the orange with blue don't load, or all the gray with blue. It will be just one random dot/pic.

    Edit : Does the same with the 'skip to last post' little file/tab pic.

    I've been getting that too. If I mouse over it, the image will appear.

    The load times have been picking up again this week. Sometimes I just plain ol' timeout. And often when making posts I'll time out but the post goes through anyway.

    Same for me. They've been timing out for the past 3-4 days, and it was pretty slow before that.

    I just wanted people to know that I am still working on this bug.

    I put in a fix about 24 hours ago that seems to be helping.

    Tech Details:
    We seem to be IO bound on our database server. I'm going to order some additional memory and move some services around to give the forums more space.

    The tweaks I put in increased the maximum packet size for MySQL, increased the maximum buffer size for FreeBSD sockets, and added additional dedicated space to table indices.

    I have no idea what those technical details mean, but I'm sure you'll find a way to reverse the polarity in time. Keep up the good work. :^:

    Yeah, I've been having significant slowdown today, on the order of some pages taking almost a minute to load, but unlike before, I haven't actually had any errors

    so exactly how much money would it take for you to fix these problems for good?

    I think if we all band together we can keep laying down jacksons until they get fixed.....

    I've been getting sporadic "database error" pages, but this morning was super-bad for slowdown. I opened up three threads in different tabs, and it took at least 120 seconds to get them loaded in.

    Thanks for listening to us whine, alphamonkey!

    I'm curious, what does IO bound mean? Is it that we have too much daily traffic for the server to keep up with so we're always hitting the maximum that it can handle?

    From what alpha said, I get the impression he means there's not enough memory to hold everything, so it has to swap to the hard drive a lot.

    Hard drives are the Model Ts. Memory is the rocket car.

    To extend/modify the car analogy, I'd say that, since you analogy implies different tech (modernity?) levels.
    Hard drives are the superfreighter. Huge, but take a while to load and unload, don't exactly fly.
    RAM would be Semi, or perhaps a freight train. Much less capacity, but goes a lot faster.
    Cache would be a ballistic missile. Very little space, but super fast.

    Does that mean that CPU registers are a series of tubes?
