Forum Running Slow

Wed May 15, 2013 6:33 am

Is the forum running slow at times, or is it my computer? Sometimes when I click on a post, it takes forever to show up. Also, when I hit the back button, it takes forever to go back, It doesn't happen all the time, but at least once or twice a day.

I've noticed the same thing. I figured it was my internet connection.

I have the same problem at times. I suspect others have too. That is why you see a lot of double and triple posts. If a member doesn't see their post right away they click on the submit button again. Every time that button gets clicked it posts again.

I have the same problem from time to time. And it seems to always happen when something is posted for sale. I get all excited to see what goodies I might want and the bleeping site crawls! Reckon I'm being told something? :-)

So I'm not crazy. It's really no big deal, just a good "patience" builder.

It is slow at times, I suspect it is from all the bots that scan for programs such as Google , Bing, etc. I know Dennis has had to limit them a time or two. To see who is on go to the main forum page and scroll to the bottom, it will show who is on at that time.

I have seen the same thing. When it happens, I will attempt to go to other sites in an effort to determine if it is my connection, or the forum.

My findings indicate that it is definitely the forum.

I have observed much the same thing ... different parts of the day, especially when the bots are active, the forum can be slower than molasses in January. It can be a bit disconcerting. There are other things to take into consideration though... how fast packets are going through nodes, what is the slowest/most congested node between the forum and your IP and of course when was the last time you ran the scans on your own computer just to name a few.

For the most part though, I have found as others have that it is the forum and I assume it is the bots. Maybe not specifically targeted to farmallcub.com but to the host more likely. Either way it is a little frustrating at times.

I have a 30 meg down and 3 meg up broadband connection with no throttles .. and it is difficult to understand at times even though I understand how packets of data travel through cyberspace. Expect it to get worse as the commercialization of the internet becomes more commonplace.
