Feedback please - Anyone else finding this forum slow?

Post17 Mar 2014

For the last few weeks, I have experienced this site, particularly the forum area, to be very slow when loading any page - whether just reading posts, using < backpage arrow or previewing a post (this post took 20 seconds to load a preview as I checked it) or for submitting etc. Any of these actions can take over a minute

Importantly, it is only this web site that goes slow, not others.

As there seems to be fewer posts I am wondering if others are not posting because of this? I have been discouraged from contributing recently as it takes so long to review and edit.

I tried changing browser from Safari to Firefox to Google Chrome; Firefox is only slightly better for this site but all are slow - none are regularly loading as quickly as normal. Especially after I've clicked through one or two links or pages, it seems to logjam and is grindingly slow.

I am noticing as I experiment that some older pages are not being found - "not available” - on first attempt, then will come up later.

As it happens on all browsers and only for this site - I must assume that it’s neither the browser nor the OS. ( I have a decent internet service, better than what I had a year ago)

It maybe there is some background ”junk” - but after a "cache empty" or a full "system scan and clean”, any improvement disappears after a couple of clicks and it’s back to the slowness.

It may be an issue at the servers ( I had an issue last year for some commercial sites I look after and had my ”host" make changes - eg servers will host multiple sites, and if it includes a banned site, the whole server is affected)

it may be some kind of surveillance or filtering here in Australia or internationally (by who knows whom) or something else.

Hence the request for feedback.

Please readers - post a quick reply - does it all seem to be as usual for you, or has anyone found it noticeably slower in the last few weeks?

I am not having any troubles or delays posting at all, but you make a good point. There may have been a couple of times when I've had to reload pages but no more often than generally usual. It might be a problem with traffic on the actual internet between you and the server. Or at the server.

Can you do a "Traceroute" ?

In Windows, select Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

Enter the word tracert, followed by a space, then the domain name.

In Mac OS X, open the Utilities folder > Network Utility > click Traceroute.

Enter this brahmakumaris.info, then click Trace.

Please copy and paste the result.

Note - this is a recent model desktop iMac currently running OSX10.7.5 on hardwired cable ethernet connection.
Other sites not slow, only this one.

I don;t really know what this all means - assuming ms = milliseconds?
For comparison, here is result for brahmakumarisforum.net - a similar site, which seems to be behaving normally

ms means "martian standard". It is the triple foreigners (originally humans) that left 5000 years ago and now have returned from their quest through the universe to return to earth after their unsuccessful quest for God. They are trying to figure out where Madhuban is, which is relocated after the last shifting of the earth axis by BK Raya Yoga ...


BTW : "martian standard " is a joke :-) ; the rest Gyan :-)))

Honestly, Pink Panther. I don't know about the rest. Sorry.

It seems to have become intermittent now, sometimes very slow and sometimes normal.

And it seems to matter which set of links I navigate through - going via ”new posts” seems to be the worst.

OK, as its ”improving” and others have no issue, this thread can be left until further developments.

Thanks all.
