Re: Server Load Times

I've been getting 10-15 seconds load times for the main index lately. Once the forum is loaded pages are pretty quick though. Thoughts?

I'm getting a lot of this recently and I can load other pages at the same time that aren't cached in other tabs, so I don't think it's my connection.

It's like this most times I open the board (my bookmark goes to the main index).

Ryan,

This is happening frequently at the moment. I thought it was my connection. I have been rebooting, upgrading software and firmware but the only site I am having real issues with is this one. Sites in the UK as well as the US, eBay, YouTube everything seems fine. Any thoughts?

Paul.

I am seeing 20 to 30 seconds half the time.

Re: Server Load Times

Ryan,

If there is an issue with the hosting would you be willing to put up our options? I am happy making my annual donation to the board and I know a lot of others are too, but it seems that the donations are mostly required for hosting fees etc so would it be beneficial to post up what it would cost to get really good trouble free hosting with sufficient bandwidth or whatever for a year.? I'm not suggesting we make this a paying site. I know we have to be careful how we approach the issue and that you want donations to remain simply that, donations. But that said if everyone could see what costs are involved and when those payments are due together with the VR4.org account balance etc., I think people might be inclined to look at it and throw in $20 when they can see (a) exactly where the money is going and (b) experience the benefits.

I really don't want to jump the gun here if the problem is not the hosting but if it IS the hosting, I can see that people who have donated might feel that the service provider isn't coming through. I feel like we should be backing you up on this a bit mate helping you make a few calls to customer service etc if they are falling short of their promises. Or maybe we are just getting more traffic than we anticipated?

Paul.

Re: Server Load Times

It's not really an issue with the hosting. There are a few things that are different with Dream Host vs. GoDaddy, but we had problems there too, remember? Really the problem is us, generally speaking. Me, more specifically.

I've tried to balance cost vs. performance (hey, it's a VR-4 site). Now that the coffers are replenished I've upped the plan a bit (performance) and we've got 500MB of RAM to utilize nowv (as in just now). I did recently discover that Dream Host forces compression on the pages and we were compressing the pages ourselves. Unfortunately that requires some processing power that was above our pay grade. When we go over on our plan they automatically restart (our virtual) server, this causes lags.

There's a few more tricks that GoDaddy had that DreamHost does not (by default) and I'll be testing these out when possible.

Overall the "hosting" part of things is really fast, but the database is not so much -- and that's really an issue with the design of this software. Always has been, but that's why it was kept so lean (post retention). We've slowly upped the sizes of things and we've really hit the limit of the performance without making some changes.

Change is coming and the last round of donations was spectacular. Just keep bearing with us.

Re: Server Load Times

Even though we are a virtual private server we are still using the shared database. That's the problem as we have no control over its speed. I'm installing MySQL on our server and will migrate the database to it. Bear with it for a few days and I'll try to it early Saturday.

Quoting Hertz:

Even though we are a virtual private server we are still using the shared T66 powered database. That's the problem as it packs a hell of a punch but we have no control over when it actually hits. I'm installing antilag on our server and will migrate the database to it. Bear with it for a few days and I'll try to get spool times under a minute by Saturday.

is it me or has the forum been going down more than a $2 hooker lately? seriously getting quite frustrating when half the time you can't even access the place due to an SQL error, the site timing out, or lately a 404 error! wtf??

Our host was jacked up again. I've already been looking around for a more reliable home.

Fast, reliable, cheap... Pick 2.

if it is reliable its the only thing on the gvr4 world that is. with that being said id say its like a tank we need a balance of all 3. load times dont have to be the fastest but id like it to load constantly. it kept cutting out on me all day.

Re: Server Load Times

Okay, so Dreamhost has apparently fixed everything. Thanks hax0r5 for trying to DDOS somebody with Dreamhost and taking everyone out.

So I'm done pointing the finger at our provider for now -- any further issues can be blamed on the responsible people .... who have never donated $.

I'll be making some more configuration changes this week that will hopefully result in more stability and probably slightly slower response times. (Try to leave more RAM and CPU overhead)

The datacenter is getting hacked on again (http://www.dreamhoststatus.com) which is confounding my ability to do some work here. As a result, the image hosting was a bit jacked up. I believe this is fixed for the time being. Sorry for any inconvenience.
