    Slow Logon Pt.2

    It started at 11AM EST today...taking forever to access Woody's...even longer to access each link...and doing replies...
    No problems with anyother of my sites and I'm on cable.
    Problems somewhere near the server??? I know it's cold here in Ohio, with wind and snow...so maybe something like that in the server area?

    Today's (or is it yesterday's) Woody's Office Watch (WOW) announces the new WMVP's and moderators. As a result, lots of WOW readers have flocked to the Lounge. For hours on end, there have been more than 100 users (logged in and anonymous) online, and we've had an unprecedented number of new members. It'll probably get better soon, when everyone has read WOW.

    I figured that...but, when I was on earlier, I had no problems whatsoever...guess it just means whatever time all our new members are flocking to the Lounge <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Right now it's just crawling and even for a specific thread number search won't even come up. I ruled out anything in my system causing this--resources, processes running. I can search and find a list of threads but can't open them up. Could simply 100 users out of 11,000 give or take a few active do this? Aren't there often 100 users on the Lounge at once or many more?

    The Who's Online link only shows the active users (ie. clicked a link) in the last 10 minutes. So, yes there could be 100's viewing a lounge page at anytime, but they're not all calling a function.

    When you see 100 people listed as online, that's the latest 10 minutes of activity. The traffic being generated is a huge load on the connection to the new server and it's bandwidth.

    As Hans mentioned, once the influx of curious WOWsers is over, we'll see the so-called normal response time again.

    Slowing abruptly seems over. Thanks. Traffic activity, bandwidth and load is interesting.

    Ok kids, here's the official word.

    We haven't had more then 40 people on the lounge since the transition. Today, they're were upward of 125 people at once. When we have that kind of volume pounding on my line and the server, its gonna get a little slow. BUT, it stayed up and is slowly but surely getting back to normal with 19 registered and 40+ anons.

    As for the other nite, my ISP needed to do emergency maintenance in my area, so my line was down for a couple hours.

    Thanx all.

    Mike,

    Do you keep any statistics as to load on the Lounge. That is what time is the busiest, slowest, fastest, etc ? Although it shouldn't make too much difference to me, since I'm usually on at 3 or 4 in the morning. ( got to get some sleep one of these nights ) <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/liar.gif border=0 alt=liar width=25 height=22>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Hey bob, Yes, I do keep logs of EVERYTHING the server does. Its really hard to say slow times because we are global and the timezones are all over the place. I can tell you that between 9 am and 7 pm mon-fri east coast times are pretty busy, but not anything like today. I'm usually here between those time and occasionally 2-3 in the morning just to check on things.
