Topic: Arduino web site very slow (Read 10301 times) previous topic - next topic

Lyndsay

For several weeks I have found www.arduino.cc very slow, e.g. > 30 seconds to access a page and frequent timeouts. I am based in UK and searched with Google for a mirror website or fix. What have I missed?

Known problem, server overload.
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

That's what I figured. I just dealt with 30 minutes of "SMF cannot connect to the database"

Known problem, no advice of when it will be fixed.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

I blame my recent excessive coffee intake on the site's speed.

Reported to moderator to be moved.
Also, I have noticed alittle sluggishness but not too bad.
Usually in the ~10s range.
Avoid throwing electronics out as you or someone else might need them for parts or use.
Solid state rectifiers are the only REAL rectifiers.

Site reponse sucks today, just to kick the dead horse again.

Just gave the system a review and this is my offer:

Get rid of the piwik System on this arduino Server and bring it to a new server. If you do not have another ask ;)

Hm yes very frustrating because there are so many good recurses on this website.   

In my eyes in an open community it is as much the users as owner responsibility to make it work .

What can we do?

Move the download recourses over on torrent or fileshare ( hey we up load to thepiratebay.org LOL) this way we all share the load of download recourses.

I don't know how to share a forum on a torrent wise way , but maybe such a method exist too?

Thank you for the great IDE Arduino is-

Yet another note to the forum administrators:

Usually I connect to the site in the morning and try to answer as many questions as I believe I can usefully contribute to.

However when it takes 5 minutes for a page to load I stop doing that. Not out of malice, but frustration.

It would be courteous of you to state here, on your own forum, what steps you are taking to remedy this (apart from corporate-speak like "we are investigating the problem"). For example, what changes are you considering? ... and a date when you plan to implement those changes.

@pathfinder: When I post images (eg. photos, circuits) I host them on my own web site, which reduces traffic to this site. Ditto for library code. You can't really "share a forum" because of the dynamic nature of it. The pages are served up by reading a database, which changes from moment to moment.

I agree with Nick. It's hard to answer- or even ask- questions when it takes 5 minutes per page load. Even more frustrating when you type a post, and get a "SMF cannot connect to the Database" error 9 minutes after you click the submit button.

Indeed the slowest site I have ever been to. Takes forever to load a page. Looks like a database issue. Maybe move it to better servers.   XD

I have 2 Poweredge 2650's under my bed with dual 2.8 Hyperthreads. Surely those would easily quadruple the speed of this site. I think they're hosting it on an ethernet shield running on an SD card....

So absolutely no solid information from the admins on when this situation will be remedied? :( If it were an issue of available funds, I'm fairly sure people would be willing to help contribute.
