Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US. response times

Friends, Admins, Countrymen,

for a few days now, this site is incredibly dragging its feet again - 40 plus sec to open e.g. "New Topics" or "Home", 24 + for "subscribed Threads". For a comparison: subsecond response for wikipedia, Englisch ⇔ Deutsch Worterbuch - Startseite, or similar.

This is more than demotivating - anybody else experiencing this behaviour? Can someone help?

This User Gave Thanks to RudiC For This Post:

Same here. For reference, this is my equipment:

Intel i7-6800K CPU @ 3.40GHz, 128GB Ram
2x NVidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti
1000MBit Full-duplex cable-bound
Linux Kernel x86_64
Mozilla Firefox 55.0.2 (64-bit)

As i am in Germany (like RudiC), can somebody from another region of the world tell if the problem is worldwide?

Same here in Minnesota, USA. It took 20 counting one-one-thousand, two-one-thousand, ... just to bring up this thread.

I test my 'net connection speed every day: 40 Mbps, with slight variations, none of which have been significant in the past month or so (when they are, I reboot the DSL modem to force a new server at the ISP).

I usually use Mozilla Firefox 52.3.0, on this box:
CPU~Quad core AMD FX-6350 Six-Core (-MCP-) speed~3900 MHz (max) Kernel~3.16.0-4-amd64 x86_64 Up~3 days Mem~3692.9/19649.5MB HDD~107.4GB(33.1% used) Procs~241 Client~Shell inxi~2.3.0
A Mac mini, Mozilla Firefox 55.0.3:
OS, ker|rel, machine: Apple/BSD, Darwin 16.7.0, x86_64
Distribution        : macOS 10.12.6 (16G29), Sierra

is also slow.

For site comparison, LQ responds almost instantly, as does stackexchange.

Best wishes ... cheers, drl

We have a satellite connection, so I have always blamed it for poor response. Does anyone have a problem logging in? Sometimes I have to enter my user and password 5 times before I get successfully logged in.
Maybe the hamsters don't like the new food?

Yes, is pretty slow from the UK right now (and in recent days) but it doesn't seem unique to

Some other sites which are normally quick are also quite sluggish so not sure what's going on. That isn't much help I know!

@jgt......I don't see any issues with logging in from the UK where I have to make multiple attempts. It can just say ' is not responding' but when I wait and wait and do nothing, it eventually will log me in. Not the same problem as you are seeing.

Just for the record: it's back to bearable now. 3 to 5 sec - not lightning fast, but OK.
