Lately UG has been running very slow over the past few days. I don't know if you have any errors in your database or if this will all pass. Shine some light on the subject.

I don't know if it's related, but I'm having this problem too. I've just thought that it's been my internet connection, or RAM-eating antivirus.

Well whaddaya know, I'm having the same problem too. It only goes slow on UG, no where else. Pics, comment, messages, mp3s, and subscriptions take forever to load too.

It's looking to be slow at certain times. I'm on GMT time, and it's usually anywhere between 2pm-8pm when UG seems to go slow for me. I know it's a broad time frame, but it does vary as to when and how long it goes on for.

*looks at clock*

33 minutes to go, lol

At the moment it is 15:45 GMT, and since 14:00 it hasn't been slow.

guy, when things slow down, can you please also try to open 10 times
www.ultimate-guitar.com
and
w8.ultimate-guitar.com

is there any difference with loading speed?

It's slow for me just now, but w8.ultimate-guitar.com is a lot faster than www.ultimate-guitar.com

ok thanks for the confirmation. in fact it should be as fast as usually. the dudes from our DC were upgrading core switches and somehow switches our servers from 1Gbps to 100mbps. *Surprse surprise* :D

All is fixed now though.
Thanks for all the reports, much appreciated!

The site and forum have been slow for me for the past couple of days too. As well, I've been having some trouble with some links to tabs. Like, clicking on a certain song will simply keep me on the artist's page. After a while, it works again. I wonder if they are related?

the forums are still a little bit slow with loading on my end. Especially the bit just after the actual thread. Where the "Quick Reply" section starts. It takes me a couple of refreshes to get that to finish loading.

zappp
11-17-2007, 08:13 AM
ok let's find this out...

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/ fast, slow?
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/ fast, slow?
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/ fast, slow?

If slow, realistically, for how long it's been slow for you?

guitarcrazy1991
11-17-2007, 08:36 AM
All fast for me...

Also, i noticed when i come on before i go to work at about 7am (GMT) it's rather slow...

I don't know if this is still happening because i haven't had an early shift for a few days but i thought I'd tell you anyway.

:cheers:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/ -> Fine. Very fast
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/ -> I got a small delay for a few seconds and it came up with a white page, then it loaded the rest of the page

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/ -> Fine.


However, this is what i meant:
I took a screenie :D In the screen shot i have scrolled right down to the bottom of the page as far as it will go and it says its finished loading.

emad I'm gonna ban you, seriosouly. stop whining ok? report as I've requested in my earlier post.

the situation has been fixed and we don't see how it could be slow. we tested gazillion times from different locations and it was always fast.

UG is fine for me.
Usually only delays around 8/9pm, but that's when I expect the majority of users to be on, so I'd have expected that.

Personally, I haven't noticed any difference.

It's normal for me.

Although occasionally i am getting some pages that take ~20 seconds to load, every once in a while.

2:30 EDT and it's horribly slow for me, right now. It took almost a minute just to go from the main forum index to the Gear Building & Customizing index.

Opening this forum and thread were faster, but still far slower than normal.

Edit:

It's now 4:40 pm EST.

Since 4:00 pm, speed varied from a little slower than normal to moderately slow, UNTIL...

From 4:25 to 4:30 it was DREADFUL.

Just got back on, as fast as ever.

It had been slow for a couple of days though.

I think I've noticed a pattern!
It seems like things get really slow around 15 minutes after the hour until about half past the hour.

i don't notice a pattern... it might be when so many users are on, or that my internet is slow.
