E running slow......
« on: January 11, 2012, 05:05:23 AM »
Is it just me or is E running really slow?

Is Veks making some changes?

Curious more than anything.

Veks is at work right now, so there may be some minor (hopefully) hitches. :-)

I get lags with PMs and modifications all the time though not every time.  I thought it was just me because other pages load pretty fast when the PMs and modifications lag.

Sometimes it happens to me in certain areas of the forums (Hidden Forums) or with exceptionally long posts too.

There are times when E is inaccessible for me too, but as Veks told me before, it sometimes just happens that the connection between US and Europe has problems, in which case I can't access E via the https protocol or by the IP address (which would be nice to have somewhere indexable by Google and therefore accessible through their archive - it usually takes me ages to Google it if E is down. O:)).

It's been happening on and off. My experience is much like Mithlomwen's - it can take 15+ seconds for PMs to load, and modify is often just hopeless unless I click it a couple times. Can't remember when it started, a week ago maybe? I didn't mention it because the indicator at the bottom wasn't showing jumped-up times so I assumed it was my connection.

So, I agreed to host another website and it appears they brought along ~1.5 gigs of images with them, and it's making the backup that much bigger, which hurt performance this morning for a bit, as, basically, we're out of RAM, so stuff doesn't get cached that often. I can remove her site's images from the backup, but that only counts for what happened around 4:30-5:15 AM CST this morning. And the backup is still getting close to six gigs even without that.

How often do you run into issue with PMs and editing/modifying posts? Is it happening less often now? I had to restart the database which purged the cache, so it would have been really bad a week ago, but if it's still going on we may have to do a fundraiser : /

It'd have to do with the first part of my post, though. The cache read hit rate being down to 99.96%. Which means that one in ~2,500 reads isn't going to be in cache, which, on average, will mean about one in 200 page views. Which you will remember more than those that didn't, especially as members are going to be more likely to hit that then non-members and spiders are.

It used to happen a lot for me over months but lately it hasn't been as bad.  I use your special help with intros a lot, too, and that's been running slow lest often as well.  It seems that tool, the PMs and the modifications are the ones I had consistent trouble with but it's not as bad any more.  I just thought is my laptop doing it and didn't want to complain.

Something I've also noticed, although it might not be related to this, is that over the past week a page on E will only load half way.  So I'd be scrolling down a page, and half of it will just cut off.  Which just results in me refreshing the page, and that generally fixes the problem.  Again, that's probably a problem on my end, but just in case it's not, I thought I'd share it here.

Thing is, unless my understanding of the way gzip-over-http works is wrong, you only begin displaying the page once you've received it all (which is actually something that pisses me off, but that's a separate rant). So if it was something with our server, you wouldn't see anything, whereas a plugin/extension or perhaps a bug in your browser (if updates stopped happening for some reason) could do that.

Yeah, when you explain it like that, it's probably my end.  In fact, I'm always getting pop ups that say a plug in has slowed or stopped working completely, so yeah, my end.  But at least I know that now, so thank you!

Sometimes you just need to get up on your soapbox and have a good rant.

I frequently have lags but only on some pages and if I get impatient I can click the "Stop" icon and then reload.  It usually only takes a second or two after that.  Some days it doesn't happen at all.  I have noticed though that I could be on pages with a lot of data attached, like image threads and one or two Staff pages.

The slow loading times hasn't been related to page content for me - it took me around or over ten seconds to actually "get to" to the main forum page (same kind of lag happened when I tried to post here), though once it started loading, it went up very quickly.

Usually this place loads up very quickly over my 1.5Mbps DSL line.

Today, it's being very lazy.

I'm sure something's being worked on and things will be back to full-speed soon enough.

I'd rather think that things are slow because Veks is working on the server.

Anyway, it is for me too, but seems and on/off thing. Twice I click and it's sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooow, then I click and things run smooth.

It's gotten worse since my last post.  It seems every page is loading slowly now and PMs are slower than usual.

Yup, certainly something up. There are times where the pages just load fine. Then others where it takes ages. Other sites are fine so I'm sure it's just E.

I've been having this same problem off and on all day to. I have to agree that the lag time when it's lagging is getting worse not better. It was barely noticeable this morning, but seems to be getting progressively worse. It's also only on E for me.

Just make sure you copy your post or have Lazarus app enabled in Firefox so you don't lose anything.  Along with lagging I've been having issues with the internet connection blinking and making things even more interesting. ::)

It sounds like it comes in handy for saving/caching what one types in forms in case the server lags or croaks.  Normally if you forward or back up or 'x' out of a page, all that 'temporary' content goes poof.

It is indeed an add on/app that cache's what you write, so if, say you accidentally hit the back button, or lose a post you've written out, you can get it all back.

Saff is right, if you do a basic google search for "Lazarus" you'll find it.

It is definitely giving me fits today, moreso than usual. There for awhile I would click to load a thread I owe a post in and then walk off to watch tv  because it would take up to 5 mins to load. Then it cleared up. Now it is slowing back down again to the point that it was taking 30 seconds just to get the font face drop down to show up.

I think Veks needs to have the hamsters rowing to speed up just a wee bit  O:)

Re: E running slow......

We seem to have a number of problems.

1) Simply, we're out of RAM. We have been for awhile, but now Linux is trying to do lots of silly things like sending a full gig to swap and then panicking while every site I run basically dies as it tries to swap what it needs back in but can't because it really likes to keep about 10% free just in case because.

I -think- I've temporarily solved that issue by restarting most of our server's services (and then because of #3, reboot the server anyway : /). But this is just going to get worse, and more frequent, until we get more RAM. I'll be posting an announcement about this here and on Blue Moon soon.

2) Our I/O situation could be better on its own.
- I should have run the mailserver off the slave server from the beginning.
- I should never have used a RAID. At all.

Regrets : /

I could setup another server 'properly' fairly cheaply (a few hundred), though Elliquiy would go down a couple of times. An SSD would be a far more dramatic improvement, but they are expensive, and I don't want to go that route until Wheezy (next version of the Linux distro I use) is stable.

3) Something else is causing random load spikes and I honestly have no idea what. Some of it, I know, is measures I took to help correct the first issue, but that isn't all of it. There are about a thousand connections to E and other sites I run open at any one time, but the server can and has handled a hundred times that in load testing. File descriptors are a similar story. It's also possible that after 200 days other things happened causing Linux to slowly degrade. 200 days is a long time to be serving millions of pageviews and handling tens of millions of database calls per day.

I just rebooted the server. If that doesn't solve #3 here (besides what I know I caused to mitigate the above) we have Problems : /
- So far, so good, though. A few seemingly random mysterious issues no longer exist. Which is good, when it comes to computers >_> Rebooting still bad : / E-penis size is measured in server uptime.

4) We do occasionally top out CPU usage, but this is incidental and extremely momentary. With the AJAX chat off of E, we tend to peak at about 50% usage.
- Getting another CPU might allow us to turn the AJAX chat back on again, but with our RAM situation so fragile I'd like to get that taken care of, first - or alongside it.

Nice work Veks.  O:)  Can't imagine any of the technical stuff is easy even when there is the money to handle it.  Perhaps some sort of fund-raiser could be worked out to supply the money for an SSD?  Maybe work it in with a writing contest - or some such?  I dunno.  I'm just tossing about thoughts in my head.

I've been running at pretty normal speed this evening,  a marked improvement from yesterday.

It might be best to do a fundraiser even before Wheezy is stable so that the money would be on hand for an SSD, and on hand in case there is a crisis point before that.

Could people post exactly what times this lag happens and when?

sar reports high-ish iowait around 3:05, 4:35, and 5:25 PM CST (the last would correspond to Saerra and LunarSage's posts).

I'm less specifically concerned if reports of lag match up with times when the system tells me it's struggling, as opposed to slowness coming out of nowhere.

I try to post exactly when it happens *smiles* All's fine here again, by the way.
Also will try to restrain from posting here next time I experience lag when I see a post has been recently made about it.

Go ahead and post, sometimes it might be some middle-ISP's connection between them and E.

I'll note that and will try to post when it happens. ;)

Elliquiy seems to be running a bit slower than usual, but not in a way that greatly impacts my browsing. It's gotten to the point where it is noticeable, though. (That was in the last few minutes.)

It seems to be fine now, strangely.

I had a pretty severe slowdown in the past 10 minutes, when the pages were taking forever to load. It seems to have recovered, though.

E has been running quite slow for me for the past one hour. It takes me up to 5-10 minutes to load a page. I don't know whether it's the beginning-of-the-month dump, or something else...

I had a very slow "spike" about ten minutes ago, for about five minutes, but up until that point and from that point everything is running smoothly.

I couldn't get E to load for a whole 5 mins and it made me sad.

Thought I'd mention I just had a time out on Elliquiy (nowhere else). Was able to fix it by tossing cache and cookies, so it was probably just me in some or the other way, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Not sure if this is part of the problem, but, opening PMs usually takes about 5 minutes for me, and it makes my browser slow down to crawl when it actually happens. I don't have the problems anywhere else, and E itself runs fast like always. Just thought it worth mentioning.

It probably just feels that way.
It's kind of weird.

I usually just open PM's in another tab, so I can continue to post on E itself instead of having to wait for it to open.

Actually, I should time it some time, although gonna go ahead and try what Saerra said to see if that helps.

It only takes about ten seconds for me.

If you have a lot of PMs, yes, it's going to take awhile. This isn't something I can fix in SMF, it's a function of how SMF - and most forum software - works when it gets into the multi-million PM range (though I have seen worse... MyBB : /).

The new CMS addresses this by changing how PMs work rather radically.

Sorry to only come back to this now.
I went through the browser, flushed my cookies and my cache, and after that the PMs open at normal speed again.

So, I guess it may actually have something to do with the browser (Firefox) and less with E.
At least it seems to hint towards that?
I don't really know much about browser architecture and how it interacts with websites, unfortunately, but I think it means it's on my end.

Thank you though for helping, Vek, I appreciate that :)

E's running slow for me at the moment. I've cleaned with CCleaner and am not experiencing lag on other websites (that are happily running alongside of E right now).

I think it might have been my IP. I have no problems tonight.
