Any reason the forums are running slow? From loading to editing posts it's terrible. All other sites are loading fine here.

Hey

It's been spotty from my side, I just assumed it was our amazing internet connection at work. Is it slow for anyone else? I'll definitely look into it though.

Just an FYI though, the host that we were with got bought out by another company and our server was migrated to their servers. Some issues definitely came up in the migration, but I was hoping it had settled. If this host is not as good as the last one then we can definitely look into moving.

Thanks
M

Could you guys ping forums.odforce.net and let me know what your ping times are?

The last few days it's been intermittently slow, sometimes taking 3-5 whole seconds to load a page, normally it's instantaneous, quite a jarring experience :).   Seems to be better today, still a tad slow though.

I also experience slow Odforum loading sometimes, when it can take up to 30 seconds to load a page. I usually blame my ISP and just visit later. Last time was today, about couple of hours ago.

Yeah I guess there are two problems I'm trying to separate out here. The first is how long it takes your connection to get to the server and the second is how long it takes to load the pages. It seems better now since the reboot, I've also turned on gzip compression for some of the assets. I'd much appreciate it if you guys could post a ping time the next time the site is slow. It seems pretty snappy for me now, but I don't really know what the problem is yet, so I'm fairly convinced it will come back again.

Hey

I checked the logs and we were getting hammered from a social media crawler bot which was basically DOS'ing us. I've blocked it, so hopefully things will get better. The site seems snappier now, but we should keep an eye on it for a few days. Please reply here if things go south again.

Thanks
M

yeah we're getting a bunch of http failure errors again. I've opened a ticket with the host to see if they can figure it out.
