Slow Access To Pages

In fact I've just run some tests turning off the automatic glossary feature and it speeds up this page by as much as 500%! Roughly 1.25 secs with the feature on, 0.25 without. I may decide to can it altogether for now, if after doing a few more tests, its having such a dramatic impact. Or alternatively default eveyone to having this feature turned off.

The slowdown seems to be particularly apparent in the UK afternoons, between 2pm and 5pm - many days I just can't wait more than one minute for a page to load!

Outside of those times, however, it's very fast indeed. :D

A suggestion then Skim, do your browsing whilst sitting on the loo, thus saving valuable time. :cheesy:

Actually that is one of the benefits of trading 5 minute bars rather than 1 minute bars - gives you plenty of time!

BTW I'm currently using a 56k modem and it seems ssssssoooooo slow - If I had to trade off this, I would have to use 60 min bars!!!!

Yes, I've had real slow access today- 10 - 20 seconds per page....
But it's ok now.

Hi all,

Yeah I've noticed it too. Over the past few months the site has been receiving an ever increasing amount of traffic - practically ever new month that passes being our busiest yet.

In the past he site has been happily hosted on a shared server along with probably well over 100 other websites (few as busy as this one though).

Over the next few months the problem is likely to only get worse, so at some point we're going to have to move the whole site to a dedicated server - which as you can guess is a whole lot more expensive. Thankfully the busier the site gets the more advertising revenue we can generate and the more viable a dedicated server for the site becomes. Also our online store opening in the next week or so, should help to.

I'm going to be monitoring the situation and looking at our options for a dedicated server. Our current hosts have served us well in the past, so perhaps they might be able to suggest some interim solution.

Well the upgrade went smothly yesterday and so far there has been nothing to suggest we'll get a repeat of the problems we had a couple of weeks ago.

Certainly the site feels a lot faster, particularly the front page and the forum pages - which were unacceptably slow yesterday (it was driving me mad!).

Sorry Paul but not noticeably better today for me - afternoons seem worse - is it your isp bandwidth overloading as kids do their homework :) :)
