    Default Slow Down



    May I ask whether any other user or administrator has experienced a significant slow down of the AF website in the past 1-1/2 days?

    All that I require of it still works but now only at a snails pace. Moving in between forums, moving from thread to thread within a forum and moving from post to post within a thread are all affected by this apparent slow down.

    Same when replying to a post or creating a new post. Time to upload new post appears to be indefinite.

    The time it takes for the website to respond to a mouse click appears to be at least tenfold that before.

    No similar issues with the multitude of other non-forum websites that I visit.

    Am using a fully fledged web-browser on a hardwired desktop computer.

    Thank you for the confirmation Braingasim.

    Now about 3 hours later and the name of the game is deterioration. The AF website has slowed down even more significantly, for me, throughout this morning. And again, this is not my current experience anywhere else on the WWW.

    I really do hope that some others will comment shortly. Then we we might a consensus of some sort. Let's see what the mid-afternoon and early evening brings then.

    It appears to be working just fine here in Africa!

    Although I may just have jinxed that!

    Same here for me Philip. Seems to have started yesterday evening on my end. I've heard similar from members in the UK and elsewhere in North America.

    It's been a good long while since the server has been rebooted. I imagine we are long overdue for that.

    EDIT: Seems to have improved slightly in the past few minutes as of 1343 CDT (UTC -5)

    I had the same thing last night; thought it was me! Even put in a new hamster for the power supply.... Seems OK now, though.

    All the best,

    Now 11 hours after my last post #3 i.e. about 10:30pm PDST. Thought that I'd take a quick look see at how the AF website is doing. Not so good actually. Really dragging its heels like much of today. Guys, this is not so much fun anymore.

    I'm going to give it miss until next week and then take it from there. No one promised me an easy life, but this is just plain silly.

    Good luck to all of you and thanks for participating. Hope that it continues to be at least sufficient for you wherever you are, South Africa included. I'd hate it if you SA'ans had to contend with load-sharing and a slow AF website....at the same time.
