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

Its usually slower around evening time.

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*

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?
I can't help wondering things like "What's Bob Dylan doing now? Is he at home, eating a big bowl of corn flakes just like I will, later on when I return back home?"

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.

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.

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

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


However, this is what i meant:
I took a screenie 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.




And just to top it off I pinged UG on the command prompt:

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.
