Default Lag

Lately the boards have been really laggy. Any particular reason, or am I alone on this?

I had real problems with logging in lately, from time to time. We're probably too popular

I've noticed quite a bit of lag recently, and although we have a usual ping time of 133milliseconds (comparable to Googles at 132ms), during times of heavy traffic, it can get quite bad. Unfortunatally, I can't think of anything to cause it besides heavy usage, although we're within our host's bandwidth limits still.

I'm used to opening multiple pages at once, but lately some of them have just been timing out. It's as though the speed of the server has been reduced, even though bandwidth seems fine. Have you tested the download speed of the server?

At that, I'm currently capped at the moment so.. it's even more noticeable than before.

Ive noticed this too - I takes a fair while to open the page. And I don't think that it is a problem on my end because sites such as wiki and Youtube open instantly.

I've noticed this a bit - I think it's mostly due to high popularity :P Nah, it'd be helpful if some members could help out with the following.

At periods of lag, could you go to the following page:

http://forums.tauonline.org/status.php

And then copy and paste (into this thread) the details in the top box (i.e.:

Quote:
Operating System: Linux 2.6.9-023stab040.1-smp
Processor: Intel® Xeon® CPU 5130 @ 2.00GHz (500.026MHz)
Load averages: 0.51, 0.38, 0.31

Memory usage: 37.731% (197820k / 524288k)
Swap: 0% (0k / 0k)
)

- this seemingly useless bunch of figures is pretty useful to server nerds like me :P

Also if there is a box called "MySQL processes", could you also copy and paste the following bit:

Thanks

I have to say, those numbers, and the fact that they look nothing like the 'example', that's a bit disturbing, also, when I look at this bit:

I seem to be over a few of the limits, no?

Or I could be reading this thing completely wrong...

Also, my post is scrambled, that's not how I wrote and quote it... Weird.

I think people should stop posting that stuff here, the board really doesn't seem to like it and the posts aren't displaying properly (for me anyway). Mind if people email (or maybe PM) you TO? Unless I'm the only one that's not seeing the posts normally, but the rest of the board seems fine for me.

I know, I previewed it first, and it came out 'a bit wrong', but when I posted it, it went completely beserk.

Is it better to delete the post entirely, and have me send the content to TO (or anyone, for that matter) by PM?
