Are the highly erratic speed issues on this forum all down to whichever service is being used to host the forum?

I love this place but the often extremely slow speed is something of a PITA.

Assuming it's the host that's being used, would it cost much more to use a much faster host and, if so, how much more?

Thanks - apologies for the moan. Smile

I've noticed it too usually in the evenings, probably when the site as the most traffic.

Maybe someone has silently stuck a proxy in the middle to snaffle any general/encrypted/private data to assist in the uncoming forum update.

Either that or the mother of all backups is all running so the data can be punted to a revitalised platform.

Not here Oll, no - still some very long pauses maybe 1/3rd of the time?

I've not been on for so long that I didn't know if it was just how things were these days. Then I saw this.

Afraid it's definitely still sluggish at times - perhaps not quite as bad as it was a few hours ago but maybe that's due to the time of day (or rather, night)?

I'll do some IO analysis on the LUN that hosts the db, but the traffic we get now is well over 60,000 visits a month so might be that.

Thanks Oll. Would moving to a faster host cost a lot more than the one that's currently being used?

Where do you think that the bottleneck is? CPU? RAM? Hard drive (or are you using an SSD)?

What are the current specs of the host PC ?
