I've had a few hiccups, but usually it ends up with not loading at all due to timeout, but very few altogether. I'm on ASC on my iPhone 99% of the time through Safari (no Tapatalk) and it hasn't been a hugely noticeable issue. Even with 1 bar things still load within a decent amount of time. I do get some odd hang ups where I have to press a link twice when I'm on various Wifi signals though.

Anyways, I'm sure it'll get sorted out.

Wow! Missed those posts about overloading nodes and peak usage times. Well, I hate to say it but I've had by far, epic landslide, winningest results with Telus almost never going down, bogging down and remaining overall stable. I guess some of you can't get Telus...

For the rest of you, it's the apocalypse. As the internet slowly dissapears, so will your pretend group of friends and pretend social life, and you'll die fat and alone in your mother's basement. Those weapons you bought on eBay and saved up ammo will only repel the first marauding, Mad Max-esque, rape squad, but what about the others? After they've turned your skin into a seat cover for their spikey motor cycle, they'll steal all that food you've stockpiled. I on the other hand will disappear with my family into the BC interior, where I'll eat barbecued deer every night and make alcohol in a stone cistern behind my shack.

This usually happens during peak hours when lots of people are "in the same area all watching netflix at the same time" according to a Rogers representative when once asked why they were getting 500 ping between the hours of 6pm to 10 pm.

The server seems to be responding fine but the path leading up to the server is jittery.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I didn't go to an IT school or anything.
You are correct on what you are saying. Usually when a node is overloaded, the traffic is diverted from it thus maintaining the speed. Plus a lot of us having speed issue? I wonder where the server is located.

Perhaps I could answer that one. After doing a little query or two, it appears the server was previously with a company in Montreal, but has been moved to a US based company, therefore the server is located in Macon Georgia I believe.

It could be server side, might some some "noisy" neighbors on the same network where the server is hosted therefore causing the slowdown + the new server location will add latency since I'm sure 99% of us visit from inside Canada ;P

I've been noticing this too, the forum is generally sluggish.

I don't think it's the connection, pinging it gives very reasonable latency. Traceroute isn't the right tool to diagnose this, some nodes along the route may simply not be set up to respond to ping requests (for a variety of reasons), so the request will time out; doesn't mean its overloaded (and if you're getting low latency on the ping the ASC then obviously everything in between is running okay).

I'd cast my suspicion on a slow server and/or bloated sql db, probably both.

I'm not sure of the setup behind the scenes, but seeing as these issues apparently popped up upon switching providers. I'd be willing to bet that the spec's of the new server may not be the same/less than before, and its possible its starving for CPU/RAM while trying to process certain DB functions for the forum.

I would be on sql issues, the site ground to a halt at off hour times for me several times, so it's not a traffic issue.

I'm also noticing slowdowns more than normal.

Previously the only slow times would be around 1:00 EST in the morning. Now I'll log on and get random slowdowns where a page will take 15 seconds or more to load.

Photos should be fixed, the image file during the server move did not get set up properly.

For those experiencing slowness, our chief admin is still setting up all the server settings as he can in his free time, should hopefully be all fixed within the week.

Weird, how often do you guys clear your cache and cookies? It works pretty damned fast for me recently.
