Title: Weenie slow
Post by: Parlor Picker on October 14, 2011, 02:47:13 AM
The last couple of days, I've noticed the Weenie site has been very slow, with some pages taking minutes to load. Don't think it's me, as other sites are working fine.

Perhaps the server needs an additional shovelful of coal?

Any other Weenies experiencing this?

Fast for me too. You might want to try clearing your browser history or deleting Weenie cookies.

I was on Weeniepedia the other day in Foxfire, and it was quite slow, but good and fast today.  No problems with speed on Safari at all.
All best,
Johnm

It got better, but seems slow again today. I'm using Firefox.

Very slow today on Firefox and Google Chrome. Other websites come up really fast. Weird...

Everything's super fast for me since we dumped TWC and went U-verse, we went from a consistent 0.25 Mbps to a consistent 11.5 Mbps, yee haw!

We're paying for 12 Mbps and will gladly settle for 11.5, plus more TV channels than one can shake a stick at, running simultaneously down the same 2 (two) skinny DSL wires as youtube vids running (at the same time) on 2 computers. Modern technology.

Suggest everyone experiencing slowness go to www.speedtest.net and report back after running a speed test against a server location in the southern US (Atlanta GA to be more precise), could be interesting. What I'm saying is it probably is not the weenie host that's the bottleneck.

Attached is a speedtest screenshot after hitting Atlanta, which is not significantly slower than hitting the local Austin or San Antonio servers:

I just tried it on Safari and Firefox immediately after Alex's post and it was quite fast on both.
All best,

I'm back to normal today (with Firefox). Hope it lasts.

I can run the problem by our host, but need more information.  Can you log the time this happens, next time it happens? (he can check his server logs then) I assume you always check that other sites are running at normal speed.

We've got one report from UK and one from Canada, of a drastic slow down, on weenie only, that comes and goes.  Well, it is really weird.

We have a reported slow down again from a UK member - any other UK members experiencing a slow down getting to the site?  Or anyone for that matter?

We took a look at a traceroute and concluded a router was timing-out somewhere close to where the transatlantic cable terminates south of NYC. O'Muck, could you or Frank get down there and make inquiries?

We have established that the site slows from 1.10 AM eastern time US, which, we have also ascertained, is when our site host, in Charlotte NC, does backup and daily housekeeping.

I've noticed it slows almost to a halt, but eventually comes back.

In the US it occurs at east coast time 01.10, central time 00.10 (when I should be in bed but often aren't), mountain time at 11.10 pm, and west coast 10.10 pm.

Bearing in mind where you live, you might want to avoid scheduling your local WC surfing time to avoid whatever time it is when it's US east coast time, 01.10

Here's a good visual link, in a world of lousy time zone conversion websites. http://www.worldtimezone.com/ (http://www.worldtimezone.com/)

Slowdown seems to have moved half an hour later to 1.45am EDT, I've just noticed.
