Is this place getting sluggish?
« on: September 02, 2007, 06:33:18 PM »
Or is it my provider?  (Though I don't seem to be having problems anywhere else.  ???)

The response time when I click on something, try to post a message, or send a PM, is getting slow (or slower than it was a couple of weeks ago).  A few times it's even timed out before the action is completed.

Am I the only one?  Or has anyone else noticed this too?

I had a few periods yesterday when this forum was sluggish, and it was not my ISP as I was surfing multiple other web sites simultaneously with no problem.  Today has been fine though.

Rab,

You are not the only one. I was going to make a comment on this the other day. My problem is between the hours of 8:00am and 9:00 EST. I have lost several posts, after I hit the button, some of which have taken me some time to get typed up. Is this site doing maintenance at those hours? Just curious. It also has been very sluggish, at other times too.
 Im learning to to put my post into notepad first, and then copy over to the thread. I also know that it is only happenning here. doesn't happen on any other site that I visit at those times. I also know that my computer is not performing any maintenance at that time.  ??? ???

Ray,

Every day at approximately 8:15am EST, the site goes down for no more than five minutes - for the site's server to go out and get a coffee, or whatever the heck it does. It's always a good idea to check it's not near quarter past when posting at this time in the morning.

I have also noticed it being sluggish here as of late.  I thought maybe it was just me.

Sometimes I lose posts or PM's, a page pops up saying cannot find website  ???

I used to lose lengthly posts after hitting "send".  Then I upgraded from dial-up to high-speed and it was like winning a contest...  Oh, what contest?  Glad you asked... How about "Queen For A Day"?  Better still... "The Price is Right" I have been to the studio many times with friends to get on that show.  That is a 4.5 hour wait just to get seated in the auditorium.

Recently, I accepted an offer from the cable service provider which covered an ungrade in TV channels, telephone with free long distance in the U.S. and high speed internet.  Now, when you all send links to Youtube items, I can actually enjoy without the five minute wait between words.  Have the best day

Considering the number of transactions the AM servers need to service, I think the performance here is pretty good.

Certainly much better than the old FuseTalk/Windows NT setup.

I agree it's better than the old Fuse Talk.  But it just happened to me again.  I wrote a post, clicked on "post" and waited and waited, then I got the same message that Nadine mentioned:  "Can not find web site". 

I don't know, maybe it is something on my end.  ???  The only reason I started this was because I've noticed a change, meaning it's been performing really well but it seemed to me that this problem (which may not be a problem) only came about recently.

I'll shut up now.

Yes, I am having  slow-go troubles also.  I thought it was just in PM functions, but it is now just generally slow (or noticeably slower than it was).  Lately I have gotten accustomed to copying posts or PM's before sending so I can redo them if they don't go thru

I thought you all were full of it... 'til today!  I stay logged in with a browser window minimized, so I haven't had trouble logging in.  I haven't lost any posts or PM's yet, though.  There's just a general sluggishness to the site.  I know it's not my connection, as we have extremely fast 'net access here at work, and every other site I go to is as speedy as ever.

using IE and road runner and I've never encountered this problem at all.
maybe I'm special  ;D  or maybe it's y'all who are special?  ::)

but really, when I'm not reading out by the pool (gotta get all the sun I can while it's beaming on Ohio  ;)), I'm at the computer (my part time job is ComputerTutor), and hitting that "unread" button to see what everyone is chatting about, and haven't ever had a sluggish problem. I sure hope y'all can get it figured out.

try doing a disc clean-up, delete temporary internet files & defragment if needed.  Not as sluggish for me now.

Well, that didn't help.

Yes, I think it is.  I signed on this morning and the forums were down for a short while. 

Unrelated:  I got some more memory (RAM) for my laptop and it's like a new computer.  I recommend memory upgrade for anyone who has a computer a couple of years old and it's acting sluggish.  I also have other tips that really worked for me.  If you want just ask.

guyinsouthala, it has nothing to do with memory. I have two GB of memory and I get the DNS error or when posting a PM it takes forever for it to return to the PM or it returns with a DNS error. It's not constant issue, but it has been doing this for a little over a week and it's getting worse. It does it when repling to to messages in the forums and returning to the forum.

Are you people using your "back" button on your browser.  If I use that I recover my posts that timed out and seem lost.

Once you hit "back" and see your text it won't let you hit "post" again though, so you'll need to do a quick cut/paste of the text and begin over.

I know, man, that's why I said "unrelated".  I was just trying to help my fellow cyberfriends.  If I had known a memory upgrade would have made my computer so much faster (not necessarity my internet faster), I would have shelled out the thirty bucks a year ago.  Good luck everyone.

And what about opening up your mail (PM's)?  It takes me 3 or 4 tries before it opens up.  The 1st few times, it just stops.  Down in the lower left hand corner the word "done" shows but nothing appears on the screen.  Happened again just a few minutes ago.

Am I the only one?

Went on AMG07 came back and the place is like it was when we left can we PLEASE get some action on this site or get the problem fixed soon. It is a shame can not post pics. Takes forever to send or receive a PM. It is just a shame that things are the same as they were after we left.

I'm not an IT guy - I might be geeky in some ways, but not in an IT kinda way. Sorry.

The official update:

The site's official IT guys are working on it.



Have any Brits here watched "The IT Crowd"? Just wondering.




Don't shoot the messanger, that's all I know, honest. They're working on it and we're to be patient.

Our top tech guy has made some changes to our forums server and database, and wants to know if folks are still having problems.  If a page fails to load and you get a "cannot display this page" error message from your browser, or the same thing happens when you try to post a message or send a private message, please post the following details in this thread:

1)  The EXACT time the problem happened (i.e. 3:42pm EDT).  If possible, please convert the time to our server's Eastern Daylight Time.  You can convert the time from your time zone to New York City's using http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html.

I've had time-outs (not the disciplinary kind  ;)  ) on the POZģ forums only both at home and at work, especially with sending PM's.  This had been going on for weeks now.  I've not had any problems with any other sites.  Thanks.

Okay folks, we can hold off for now on the reports.  Our tech guy has enough time-stamped reports to work with (I just sent him a detailed one myself).

He promises improved performance within the next few days. 

I'll post another update once the fixes have been made.

To be fair, the "hang 5" (or 35, 36. 37...) is only intermittently annoying to me. Most times the forum is working fine for me.  Why I think it's prob the SQL server (or the PHP/SQL server interfacing..same thing in my book) is the hang seems to happen on key I-need-to-query-the-database moments eg sending a PM, homepage, logging in, and posting. But it is kinda annoying, and now, well, part of the experience so to speak.

On the other hand, it makes me thing twice before posting, so maybe that's a good thing  :D

Hi Guys...

No, it's clearly not fixed yet. Peter and the IT guys were working on this full time today. Upon trying to upload a Forums software update, we started experiencing site-wide problems and experienced a server crash or two. We're going to try upgrading the software again this weekend, once traffic to the rest of AIDSmeds.com and POZ.com slows down.

Look guys, I'm asking for a little more patience until we've resolved this major problem. This hasn't been easy on anyone. We simply haven't had the resources to get to this until recently, and with the sluggishness -- and time outs -- getting worse as of recent, we've made this our top priority. Again, we're doing everything we can... and I'd appreciate it if some of you'd keep the caustic remarks to yourself.

Thanks, everyone.  So far, so good.  It's 9am EDT right now, and I've just started building a huge search index for the forums -- we deleted the old one prior to moving the database to it's new home/server.  A search index helps make forums searches more efficient.

Creating this index actually puts a heavy load on the new server, so over the next 45 minutes, I'd love to know if anyone experiences any sluggishness or pages failing to load.

Thanks!

Thanks so much, and I'm so glad that things are running smoothly again. It was terrible while you were offline. I actually had to go outside and do some yardwork. To top it off, I even took my new bicycle out for a ride. It was terrible out there in all that sunshine and fresh air.  ;D

Thank goodness I'm back inside now, huddled in front of the warming rays from the EMF put out by my 3 monitors.

At 13.21 London time (7:21 EST, I think), the server was sluggish and gave me this error message.

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

The server still goes down for a few minutes* at approximately 8:15 EST. *(the longest I've noticed was ten minutes, though it's usually more like five)

This is not the same thing as the problem we've recently had - it's to do with the server rebooting. I always try to keep my eye on the time at this time of day so I can refrain from trying to post until we're back up and running again.

It seems better. Hey, hijack I guess but I have a question, what's the name of this forum's technology? many times it's been mentioned that the old forum ran on "Fusetalk" which I thought was quite similar to this current setup here. The reason why I'm asking is because I use another message board on Yahoo but it's sssooo different from here, as in "different: bad" ... It's not user friendly, there are no avatars, topics are never grouped (all posts come in chronologically)

I would like to know the name of our technology here so I can maybe propose it to that other board sometime in the future

Thanks

PS - That other board has nothing to do with HIV

I don't have near the problems on here as I do elsewhere.  Besides, it's free, and better than anything else out there. 

Please, Peter, don't let them change anything!  I'm so sick of change.  I just got a new computer at work with Office 07 and it sucks ass.  What used to take me three or four clicks now takes at least ten and it doesn't give me the same results as Office 00. 

OOops, I think this is for another thread.  Sorry, didn't mean to hijack this topic, but please, Peter, don't let them change my Forums!

Thanks!

Matty the Damned has been having troubles with his ISP but he's noticed one curious thing.

When he uses Teh Fowumz on his own machine (powered by Fedora 7 Linux donchaknow) the time outs and other wotnotz that seem to drive you other people crazy are few and far between. Sure I get the odd:

"Open: index.php - save to file or open in application?"

dialogue box, but nothing too extreme.

When on the odd occasion I pop in on a Windows machine the whole experience is egregiously slow and torturous. No wonder so many of you people are such cranky old bitches.
