Made some changes, let me know if that improved things
LOL, That happened to me too!! Wiz is up to something!!
Ok, I'll let you know when I get a reply to a sub on there
What did it say in the alert?
Sorry W1zz I'm wrong!! I did post there! My bad.
One thing I have noticed is that some of the refreshes seem to take quite a while, for example if I post in a thread, it can take me several refreshes and upto a couple of minutes before that thread moves to the top on the forum front page showing last posting time.
Does this only affect the Recent Discussions box on forumhome? or also the recent posts display (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/find-new/posts?recent=1) ?
edit: updated instantly for me for this reply, press submit here, then reload in the other window
It's sporadic for me, often it's fine, probably only 1 in 20 times and yes just in the "recent Discussions", will try it again with this one.
Edit; That one was better but took 2 refreshes and about 15 seconds, might be my browser, will have a play.
I have had both the forum and the front page load up looking like it's 1982 several times, but it's only ever once, and a refresh fixes it. It's usually the images and such missing, and the page layout is screwed up. I don't know how to describe it any other way. Happened four times yesterday.
I have blacklisted certain google ad servers, but sometimes my bowser is screwy at other sites too, so for me, could be my browser too, and it never seems repeatable.
Will test the performance on the laptop in sig. When typing posts or anything there's a terrible lag. I can pretty much type entire sentences before the first word is done. At least that is how it has been no matter the browser.
I broke the site at least once for a few minutes yesterday. What you see also happens when an instance is migrating to another server, there is about 15 seconds of downtime (ie, fixed with F5)
Is it just me or is GN also much faster, so that Gif's load fast and the Crazy picture thread does as well......
The whole site is fast, search is good, and reviews load blazingly fast. Good jorb.
new Haswell Xeonz = fast , 32 GB instead of 8 GB RAM, new database engine (MyISAM -> InnoDB), new web server software (Apache -> nginx), web files on faster storage (NFS -> GlusterFS), all software updated, etc etc
Moving some instances around at the moment, so some short outages on any of our sites can happen.
No pictures in tpu android app reviews, clicking on broken image causes app to force close.
works for me now
I just tested it a minute ago and I have the same problem.
confirmed. forgot to reload in my app
I just tried it again, seeing the images now, I'm not sure if the images are made to be clicked on in the app, but when I click on an image the app still crashes.
As long as I don't click on the images it works fine for me.
fixed now i hope
Yes it works fine now. Thanks W1zz
Site seems to be suffering a few hiccups. Couldnt access the site at all for a few mins.
^^ I second this. I just spent 15 minutes trying to get in. Site was also down for me for about 5 minutes 3 hours ago.
You gonna buy me a drink now sailor? We were getting buy on 8GB of RAM before, is this why there was so much variance in the loading times?
Any of us ever going to be able to trade our stars or what not for a animated avvy?
