For the past week DU has been slow at certain times of the day.

Is anyone else having these issues?

Sometimes it takes a minute to load a page. This is the only site I am having an issue with and it is on all browsers.

5. Yep. I asked the admins about other glitches as well.

No response yet.

I tried posting something to LBN. It would only show up on the home page. Not in latest. Not in LBN.

Yesterday I successfully posted something to LBN. It was locked a short time later as a dupe.

A link was provided. I could go to the link directly, but I could not see the OP in LBN or Latest. Which is why I duped.

But yes. Right now it's slow as molasses.

6. Definitely.

It's been worse recently, but then again, DU has always been one of the slowest sites I'm on regularly.

11. Yeah, it's getting to the point where pages aren't even loading.

No matter how long I wait. It's painfully slow. Any idea what's happening from the admins?

13. yep

Skinner almost always says (paraphrasing) "Not slow for me."

I don't complain any more, it's useless. IMHO. I feel your pain!

20. For me it routiinely hangs trying to load.

Usually refresh the page and it loads again. I haven't had a complete outage in a while.

I suspect it has to do with with ads loading on the page.

LOL if DU is slow I hit discussionist and it loads fast.

Some factors might be if you have a lot of threads hidden by keywords or ignore, its going to take more processing to load.

Also the lag could be from 3rd party ads, which Skinner does not have that much control over. If they are slow to load the whole page will hang, huge threads also load only half way sometime.

Fear not I'm sure skinner is working on DU update 4 for the election year. I suspect that could be a reason DU3 not a big priority.

Peace Justin

22. one issue could be people gaming the jury system

Every reload gives a chance to serve.

If I was project based I would have a bot constantly reloading to be on a jury.

24. I don't mind. as a 60%er it doesn't happen often for me.

Having programmed PHP myself I'm often impressed actually how fast keyword or person ignore runs on this place.

Its pretty amazing code skinner has.

26. Imagine if your loading a page at the same time someone who has..

a bunch of keyword and people on ignore. Its a lot of database calls and stresses the system.

Thats my guess. Lets remember DU is likely one server, not a distributed system like Facebook or google.

Add to that someone who is on dialup loading cat pictures from the lounge, with a slow system, the server is busy serving their slow requests while your waiting.

I agree it could be faster but it is what it is.



A fun place to waste time!

30. Seems to be a five-server system.

However, I am not sure how good the load balancing is between them.
