Site (not the forum) is very slow Can't Post or Reply Privately

I've noticed that the site is slow, maybe especially the last week, and in particular today. It literally can take more than a minute for a page to show.
For example:
http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/divisions/14/

It doesn't matter which computer I use, it's as slow from my work as it is from my home.

Is it slow for you others too?

I just checked some other British sites too, like BBC, and they were fast. So I don't think it's some Swedish-English problem.

Finally, thank you all (including Steve) for making this such a great site and forum.

Same here. I've noticed it's even slower at certain times like Saturday evening, Sunday morning, Tuesday evening etc. when I assume people are either looking at the latest results and/or a few editors are online updating stuff.

Ive seen it too occasionally and Im not sure why. Hosts tell me it's not a server issue as there are plenty of server resources left (NLM runs on a dedicated server so no other sites are on it). If it's a software issue I will need to get FDC the site software developers to take a look.

Kepp me updated please Thanks

Painfully, almost unuseably slow at the moment. Seems to get slower by the week..........

Re: [steve walker] Site (not the forum) is very slow [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I find it to often be slow. Tonight (currently, and I know it's Saturday night) it takes more than a minute to even get to a page like
http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/steps/steps-1-2/
Then click on its link to
http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/divisions/1/
leads to another minute of waiting time.

So something seams wrong, doesn't it?
(Although this is still a great site!!)

For some reason, this page loads immediately:
http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/steps/other/
although showing a table takes up to a minute:
http://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/divisions/89/


(Not sure where to write this, so sorry if off-topic: Are playoff results shown anywhere on this site? )

The Forum (haven't checked the rest of the site) seems to be very very slow today, often taking multiple counts of ten for pages of threads to load. I've no problem with any other sites so don't think it's anything I've done.

Re: [ictoan] Site (not the forum) is very slow [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I don't know if it's coincidence but it seems slower when the amount of guests online is higher. It's been showing 6000+ quite a lot for the past few days. Whenever it's dropped below 5000 the site's been faster.
I know that number isn't the actual amount of people viewing the site at any given time but I can't remember the reason given why it's so high.

Re: [VP] Site (not the forum) is very slow [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Slower than a three-legged dog this morning...and I've given up trying to load the various
Steps' sections at the top - making a cup of tea normally sees the time out.

Must be frustrating for the guys in charge when both parties cannot find a reason why it should be thus....

Re: [DonQuixote] Site (not the forum) is very slow [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I think that VP may have hit on the reason as during a very slow period this morning there were over 10,000 guests. At one time yesterday evening when it was slow there were over 8,000 guests.

On another forum I am registered with when the numbers hit a high, the site will selectively crash and only allow registered users access.

Just logged in and it's fine for me. The guests only number 2800.
It's either a huge coincidence or that's the reason.

I will ask the hosting company to take another look and see if they can isolate where the problem is.

Steve, I don't know if this is relevant to the problems here but the following was posted on North Stand Chat by its administrator:

"NSC has been getting increasingly hammered, most notably from China. This hasn't caused any obvious issues with the operation of the site, but the resultant load has seen NSC's hosting costs start to rise very sharply.

Last night I deployed a security service called CloudFlare which, essentially, sits between the end user and NSC and acts as a filter. If Cloudflare thinks you're dodgy or might be trying to do something dodgy it can block you from getting to the site, thereby saving NSC's servers the burden of serving up a lot of data as you go about your nefarious activities.

An added benefit of this approach is content caching which should make the site faster for everyone most of the time.

If you experience any problems, or see anything unusual, please post here. I can flick a virtual switch at any time and turn Cloudflare off if it's causing problems."

Just been a spike to nearly 11000 guest online and the forum slowed to less than the pace of a snail on valium.

Now it's about 5600 guests, with at least 50 of them always being active during the particular minute I check. (To compare with 11 members, of which 4 are being active during this minute.)

(But I haven't noticed the forum being slow, despite being here for a couple of hours.)
Edit: tables taking 30-40 seconds now to show.

It's being looked at both by the hosting company and by the NLM main site software developers FDC. The problem does seem to be with the main site software but between them they should be able to come up with a working fix soon I hope.

No, it has peaks and troughs. You just hit a bad peak.

I think we are close to a solution, I will post here when it is implemented and we will see if it improves.
