Slow Page Loading?
    #4521126 - 08/11/05 04:50 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Anyone else getting this? Taking about 2 minutes to load each tab I open, even if I do them one at a time. I'm on dial-up and would say the site has slowed 300% for me in the past week. Not having this problem with any other site...

This is kind of weird, we've made some changes recently but nothing that should affect load times so adversely. For instance, this page is still just 8.8K gzipped... images add a lot more but the document itself should begin to render almost instantly, even on dialup. I notice you're both using the default stylesheet, could you please try switching to a different one and see if it improves your loading times at all? That will help me narrow things down.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience,

-Y

It is getting better for me now, no loading times of 30seconds anymore, but I still checked a different sheet because loading times are still too high IMO.


Ok, I took a stopwatch and did some experiments :smirk:

default sheet:
It takes 4-10 seconds to flash to the next screen if I click on a link.
It takes a very short time, depending on pictures in the thread etc, to complete loading the full page .

Cool Blue (light) skeet:
It takes 0-2 seconds to flash to the next screen if I click on a link.
It takes a very short time, depending on pictures in the thread etc, to complete loading the full page .


I use Firefox, a 200kb/s DL and a 50kb/s UL internet connection and have a 2.0GHz CPU and enough memory so rendering a page should not be a problem.

Let me know if I can help you with anything....

Annom, thanks a lot for that information. Could you please try the default style again and let me know if the loading times are improved? Also, could you post the page generation information from the very bottom of the page? Thanks again I really appreciate it.

Peace,

-Y

I don't see any improvement in the loading times with the default sheet.

It took 6.5 seconds to fully load this page.
Generated in 0.138 seconds in which 0.041 seconds were spent on a total of 35 queries.

Okay we're thinking it could be a memory leak, right now the servers have been up for 175 days so hopefully a reboot tonight will fix things. It could also be a regional thing since Vamp and I really haven't noticed any problems here in the Midwestern US.

Anyway I hope it's taken care of tonight, but in case it isn't could anyone with speed problems please PM me the results of a 'tracert shroomery.org'? Thanks a lot.

Peace,

OK! I'll just use a different skin, that solves everything for me. I liked the new skin and menu though.

I can live with a different skin if it's not a general problem for many users.

I'll let you know what happens after the reboot, with the default skin.

Thank you for doing so much to keep the Shroomery running smooth!

Thanks man, I hate to ask but could you try the default style again and let me know if it's any better? Just trying to rule out any of the changes I made recently.

Peace,

No problem! Just ask!

Nothing noticeable better.

But I just checked it on a different computer and it loads faster on that computer. Other skins without the menu on top still load faster, but the gap is only +- 1 second. The only major difference between the two computers is win2000 vs winXP(problem PC) and 3.2GHz vs 2.0GHz(problem PC).

This looks like it is a problem on my side. Weird thing is that my CPU nor internet connection do anything while waiting for the flash to the next screen. It seems like it tries to connect to the Shroomery or something and this does not happen with a different skin.

Don't waste more time on this problem because it seems to be on my side. Sorry!

Yeah I actually signed up for a dialup account just to test this. For me the site loads okay even over 56k. It's not blazing fast but that's dialup for you. The Shroomery didn't seem noticeably slower than any other web sites. I'm starting to think any remaining issues could be network-related, a tracert from anyone with a problem would help confirm this.

Peace,

Page titles will pop up instantly...it just takes 30-120 seconds to display the page (Firefox). I don't know what I'm looking for in my tracert results...10-11hops, first 3 3000ms, rest average 450ms. If that doesn't help at all let me know what I need to do. Will try a different stylesheet.

Using Deluvian Blue, everything is back to normal and quick loading. The default stylesheet is a little faster than yesterday.

not sure what tracert shroomery.org is, but I switched to a different skin and the pages are definitely loading quicker. the default skin was really lagging in the last few days. Oh, and I am not on dial-up - DSL connection.

Could you guys who were having problems with the default stylesheet please try it again and let me know if it's improved at all? Thanks.

It may be a very very small amount faster than it was when I posted this morning.

This is all very strange... I've tried pretty much everything I can think of to speed up the default template and I don't know why it's still slow. Could you guys think back and try to pinpoint when you first noticed the problem occurring? Also I could really use those tracerts, if you don't know how:

Start | Run | cmd.exe
> tracert shroomery.org

Once it's done, click the icon in the window's top left. Select 'Edit | Mark', highlight the command output, then hit [Enter] to copy. Paste it into a PM to me, please don't post in public since it contains your IP.

Thanks guys! I'll get to the bottom of this I promise.

Peace,

-Y
