I've gotten this error three times now where I couldn't post something. It took about two minutes before the page started to load and then this error came:


504 Gateway Time-out

It usually means one of the servers are down or not working.

Although in this case i don't think that was it, just refreshing the page will fix it, I got it once as well.

The forums are sometimes pretty slow, I've had a few 504s in them the last few days.

IP searches too.

All fine at the moment though.

no i meant firefox tabs, the whole site is slow, usually i would scan down the pit and middle click any interesting threads which opens a new firefox tab, then i read them all. but last night was really bad i had to abandon making posts cuz it was soo slow (and i mean literally minutes, it went to a timeout in most cases) seems okay now though (UK time)

I sometimes get the 504s but I can never be sure if it's UG or my connection.


Just wanted to let you know.

ok... that's good to hear, so we don't need to look at the rest of the servers. forums are OK for everyone now correct?

yah all seems fine now, all loading within a second or 2


=/


Mine seems to take a bit longer, more like 10 seconds. And it's not my connection because I pinged the bot in the chat and the reply was of 1 second. That means my connection works fine.


=(

EDIT: I'll post back in a while see if anything has changed.

[Rincewind PING reply]: 6secs


Ok, it's my connection. Ignore me.

I've also noticed a slow load time for the last 2-3 days now. Even today its a little slower than normal but at least im not getting any timeouts today.

the problem seems to come and go randomly though the day though.

ok, so correct me if I'm wrong:

the problem is strictly with UG Forums which are occasionally slow at 6-10pm EST timeframe?

I got a 504 yesterday in the early hours and it was painfully slow for while. Its only in the forum im finding it, profiles and tabs are ok for me.

I get hit with the slowest speeds around 11-2am London time. But it varies day to day.

you can't imagine but this time it was a 3rd *different* problem in 2 weeks which has caused the slow response time. some dick tried to DDOS the site.

How about the search?

Its not working and forums are mighty hard to use without it.
