Title: Slow loading and hang ups ?
Post by: SteveC on February 23, 2018, 01:26:33 AM
Anyone else having a problem lately with pages slow to load and or hanging up ?

I'm using Chrome on my computer .

On desktop no.
On phone yes, serious lagging, temporarily using tapatalk again.
Could be my budget phone but other sites seem to work okay...

Occasionally, on Chrome on both PC and Chromebook and Safari on iPhone.  Seems inconsistent and not dependent on my location.

That's usually what I think too. That I used my data or it's Comcast fault, I like to blame them. BUT, I've tried multiple sites, I can click straight through on all the others.

Btw I'm on iPhone using Safari.

Are you getting slow page loads Reinier ? 

Yes, sometimes it takes appr. 20 seconds to load. But otherwise it seems faster than before the server migration.
I can reprodice it by performing some random search inside a thread or a subforum. Requesting some other page at the same time takes quite a while.

Perhaps reporting the time a particular lag moment happens would help me track it down.

According to the server stats the average usage is well below the max capacity for our setup, apart from the other day when I had to regenerate the entire gallery.

sorry, I'm trying to get everything to settle down and it won't.

Thing is, server stats don't show us maxing out our resources, so while things might slow down a tad, they shouldn't grind to a halt like that or in the case of the random "stutters" where there's no response at all, no error, it just loads for a few minutes.

Tickets have been filed, and trying to sort out some cloudflare settings to lighten the overall load when the forum is busier...

Everything is faster for me on the site, but I have been getting server response problems off and on. It did that before the migration too. Safari in ios 12 still lands me in the login box, complete with popup, but I just got the Chrome ios app, and it works fine. Servers still timing out though.  ???

Micah,

For a month or so before the server swap (maybe more), I found the site pretty much unusable. Being on a Blackberry, I don't have access to the big name browsers, and three of the four browsers I have installed wouldn't run MTO at all. I could get slow functionality on one browser, and pages would hang up, and lock the entire browser up, on all the other three apps. No such problems with any other site, just here.

For me, whatever you've been doing has worked!

I'm now back on my usual browser, and the site is working great. Pages load straight away, with no hang ups or crashes. It's working better for me than it has done for months.

Thanks for all the work you've put in, it's made a huge difference.

Cheers
Al

I wish I could take credit for it, but for the most part, our new host has upgraded hardware and background software over our old setup (which served us well for quite a while!) and that has in most cases meant that our sites load faster than before. We're still ironing out some hiccups from the changeover. Seems like just as I'm making a positive step forward another issue pops up, but this isn't my first rodeo.

Anyways, glad it's all working better for you, I have things I'm working on that I hope might improve things even more if I get a chance to actually see them through that is. Currently fighting a cold on top of it all.  :facepalm:

Based on my discussion with the guys at our old host, it sounded to them like a lack of php memory, and upon checking the settings the new server is much lower than our old server was set.

when it does stall, be patient, let it finish whatever you tried to do... dare I say it, do something else in a different tab while you wait. If everyone hammers the same request multiple times it doesn't improve the situation any.

My cold evolved, seemed like I was over it, and now seem to have relapsed to a lesser form of it, that still involves gallons of snot and coughing up phlegm.

Yep, same here. Really slow today, and sometimes not loading at all. Not in TT, not in Safari.
Search doesn't work at all. At least, not in TT.
Works fine on other forums, so I guess it's the server.
I have to admit that it worked better before we moved.

Post by: glenfiddich1983 on January 14, 2019, 10:07:07 AM
Same here. On my home computer, of me Phone, at work. In the past week I think about 30% of all times I try to load the forum, it keeps loading and nothing happens. Then after a short while it works fine again.

I have a feeling that opening the forum on Tapatalk triggers the hanging because almost every time I try to open it on Tapatalk first it hangs, and then it also hangs for about a minute when I try to open it on the web based version. Most times when I try opening the web based forum without trying it on Tapatalk first, it works.

Deleting TT would mean I probably won't visit the forum anymore. As long as it doesn't have an mobile site I think it's terrible to work with on a phone.

I have never tried tapatalk, what are the advantages?  :think:

I have to resize my pictures since the cameras have become so powerful, I used to be able to post images with my iPad 2 without resizing, but those days are gone.  :dunno: I don't mind, I usually have to do some editing anyway.

not bearing the "forum death" occurrence from yesterday,
I've also had several hang.ups, slow loadings, need to reload a page 4 to 6 times for it to open and such problems since the server move  :dunno:
Title: Re: Slow loading and hang ups ?
Post by: Whoey on January 15, 2019, 07:56:56 PM
Has anyone had any since the DDOS on the host yesterday?

Since the initial move we upgraded to a larger hosting package, with a lot more resources (which we're currently not even close to maxing out)

If I had a choice I would have stayed where we were, even though we were really beginning to max out the available resources available to us.

It's really hard to track this down as it's now clearly not a resource issue, and when things do load the first time it's faster than it ever was previously. Also without it actually spitting out an error of some type, there's not a whole hell of a lot to go by.

I have bumped up the caching level, which uses more CPU, but since we're not even close to using full capacity it should help out rather than hinder, I'll leave it like this for a few days and see how it goes before I touch anything else... unless it's really bad of course.

This was not the case about a week ago and this is also the only website where I am experiencing this.

At the risk of jinxing it, I'm not going to touch or change anything and see if it behaves since the reboot this morning.

Unless the hosting company has a suggestion as to what might be going wrong or might fix it.

yeah, I was testing themes and clicked the wrong thing... :facepalm:

I meant to remove the theme, not make it default.  :twak:

Anyways, also enabled a new theme "Sunrise" that is very popular atm, and feels much better than shelflife does on mobile etc... it has a neat day/night mode feature and is very easy to use on mobile devices. I still have some minor changes to apply, but it seems good to go now with all the modifications in place!

Yes, I've been testing it for a while, there's still room to improve, but it's a massive step in the right direction. The biggest thing being a hamburger menu that works correctly!

I love that in portrait mode on my tablet I get the hamburger menu, and landscape it shows me icons... the font awesome icons are lovely (although a few items still not converted over) but mostly that it all scales to something usable.

Done


That's weird about the avatars, they aren't any bigger on my screen   :think:

Thanks Steve  :drink:

It might be because I'm on oddball BlackBerry browsers, which might not follow the same rules as the regular well known ones.

Yesterday morning I couldn't reach the forum at all.
I like Sunrise, but I personally think the buttons on top for new posts etc. are not logical.
Looks like a 'subscribe' or 'new account' button.
Still prefer Tapatalk. So much easier.

Lately I have been experiencing a lot of issues in both Safari on my Mac and in Internet Explorer on my Windows PC.

Not just on this site, but on multiple website.

So I switched browser to Chrome and Firefox, and it seemed to have made the issues go away.

I am still experiencing a lot of issues on this forum in Tapatalk though, I will also admit that I think Tapatalk is garbage, but it’s the only way I can properly upload pictures on the forum

Yup, clearing cache completely for this site makes the difference.

Spoilers should be working everywhere, on all themes.

I need times with timezone info for the host, they're trying to track it down in the logs.

But the fix that cleared it up previously is not the cause this time. (they bumped the limit up and the logs are no longer erroring about it)

Not read all the replies, so sorry if someone else has mentioned this. But I get slow loading on both PC and iPhone  (safari).
Mrs Tosh frequents mumsnet regular on Iphone, Ipad and PC and she too gets slow loading.

What both sites have in common are the smurfing ads  :rant: :rant: :rant:

Is it this that's causing the pages to constantly reload? We had adblock on the PC but it mysteriously just disappeared after Microsoft updated the software.

Do you know I utterly smurfing hate ads on the web...sends me crackers. I have NEVER ever been tempted by what ever smurf they are trying to tempt me with...I wish they'd all just phuck off!!

Well, it costs money to run this and all websites. Ads are a way of generating a small amount of income to help pay for running our forum.   I will say that the ads on this forum are way less obtrusive than most other websites.

I still blame the search. I did a forum-wide search that took a minute to complete and during that minute I got freezing pages on a PC and on my phone.

Not read all the replies, so sorry if someone else has mentioned this. But I get slow loading on both PC and iPhone  (safari).
Mrs Tosh frequents mumsnet regular on Iphone, Ipad and PC and she too gets slow loading.

What both sites have in common are the smurfing ads  :rant: :rant: :rant:

Is it this that's causing the pages to constantly reload? We had adblock on the PC but it mysteriously just disappeared after Microsoft updated the software.

Do you know I utterly smurfing hate ads on the web...sends me crackers. I have NEVER ever been tempted by what ever smurf they are trying to tempt me with...I wish they'd all just phuck off!!

Well, it costs money to run this and all websites. Ads are a way of generating a small amount of income to help pay for running our forum.   I will say that the ads on this forum are way less obtrusive than most other websites. If more members would donate a few dollars a month maybe we wouldn't have to have ads.

I always get ads for breast augmentation... I'm not complaining.

See... I wasn't making it up...

Those are google adsense ads. They are taylored to your google search history and link visits. :tu:

I'm contemplating a clean set of files and reinstall all addons, possibly in an effort to shed some of the moss that has accumulated over the years through upgrades/updates. Also as a possible look towards the new update of the forum software which has a responsive theme by default, so the 3rd party themes would go in favour of a customized default.

I noticed a lot of repeated guest traffic from similar IP blocks (first 3/4 blocks matching) with obvious erroneous requests, and have blocked them at server level.

The downside to that is that it fills the error log with those attempted connects.  :facepalm:

I believe my original plan of putting a clean install in place would be beneficial, but there's so many little details I need to sort ahead of time to keep the downtime minimal. In the meantime I may do some offline local testing.

When it does stall, can you leave the tab open, and when it does load check the time at the bottom of the page?

I just performed a search, which lasted too long for my liking so I cut it off.

I then tried to load the main page which was hanging up again too.

Could it be that the pages start slow loading every time someone performs a search?
Or maybe when multiple searches are started in the same time frame?

OK, so as of 2:35am Central time(give or take a minute or two), I experienced some serious lag. Seems like a packet request issue within the php databases, because I ran my terminal and pinged forum.multitool.org and multitool.org at an average of 42ms during each freeze.
Title: Re: Slow loading and hang ups ?
Post by: Whoey on February 24, 2019, 10:48:38 AM
life has otherwise interfered with my attempts to make further progress on this.

I changed some settings, including removing search from guest users, so only registered users can search the forum at the moment.

Creating custom search indexes are proving to be very problematic due to the amount of posts and some other issues I need more time to sort out, and based on what I read, it's to be expected that the index table can be larger than the actual posts table.  :oops:
Title: Re: Slow loading and hang ups ?

Just out if curiosity, could you attempt deleting some of the non-tool threads that are 10+ years old to lessen the table size for you to create new search indexes?
I haven't touched computer stuff in about a decade, so I may just not really know what is going on. HTML and PHP have drastically changed since I used to fool with it. :facepalm:
Title: Re: Slow loading and hang ups ?
Post by: Whoey on February 24, 2019, 09:28:52 PM
There's a lot of things that should be done, but they also go against the non deletion policy.

I have found there's a remove nested quoting option that is now enabled, shame that there are a bunch of "breaking the internet" type threads that are giving me nothing but headaches that it won't fix.  :facepalm:

Also there's another search option for large (750k+ smf) forums that might be another answer to speeding up searching while keeping things a bit more under control.

I think that's something that has happened on occasion, or someone's avatar loading instead of a smilie etc.

clear all forum related cache or try a different browser, if that doesn't fix it we can look at other possible causes.

Further to this, I have changed the limit to 2 minutes for registered users, however, if you change the dropdown on the search box from "Entire Forum/this board" to "Google" it uses google to search which returns much faster results (albeit slightly different)

while not ideal, you can still use the google option to search without causing grief on the server, the default will probably tell you you don't have permission (there doesn't seem to be an off switch...)

Aside from several 20 second freezes, it has been running fairly well for me since you disabled the in-forum search. I had never tried the built in google option, but it is actually awesome and fast! Thanks, Whoey!

On Tapatalk:

I just performed a search, which lasted too long for my liking so I cut it off.

I then tried to load the main page which was hanging up again too.

Could it be that the pages start slow loading every time someone performs a search?
Or maybe when multiple searches are started in the same time frame?

Even with the search enabled I had slow loading and hangups a couple of times. I don't experience any difference with before the search was disabled. Even as I am typing this reply I am opening a second browser window to look in another thread and that just keeps loading with nothing happening for at least a minute.

Can the search please be enabled again? This site is like a vault of information and I use the search a lot when I try to get information.. I really can't do without the search  :angel:

I certainly don't mean to step on anyones toes here and I know Whoey is working really hard and  :hatsoff: to all his efforts, but I guess there's an big elephant in the room and it's called The Server. I think we can all experiment as much as we want but it seems to me that the server hosting this site is simply not up for the task. The solution is there not here. You can try and tweak this forum, try to disable stuff that on any other forum works fine and therefore should not have to be disabled to get this forum working, you try to delete old threads (please do NOT consider this!) but the problem is not this website, it's the server. We didn't have all this problems before the server change, so a decent server should be able to host this forum without any problems.

Just my 2 cents.

If some extra money is what's needed for a better server I would be happy to be part of a voluntary paid membership at for example $10 per month to guarantee a certain steady influx of money. I am certain more people would do the same. I already am Charter Member, which is only $30 a year and maybe that's not enough to keep this forum going. Maybe there should be an option to convert Charter Membership into for example "Platinum Membership" that has a monthly fee. As long as paid membership is completely optional and members that can only take the free membership still get a fully functional forum (not like BladeForums where free members can't even send personal messages).

Hard to think it's the server unable to handle the load when it gets hung up with 100 people online...I'm not knowledgeable in this field, but it doesn't seem like a capacity issue.

That would depend on so many things... I'm not an SMF expert (even though I have run a couple of websites with SMF powered forums), but it could be something as simple as one or two inefficient database queries that cause the database to perform terribly. For example, in some cases a database table can be locked for reading while the database engine is performing some task (like inserting or updating a record). In that case, one single visitor could cause the complete website to grind to a halt.
I'm not saying this is the case right now, but in theory something like that could be happening.

In my job, I work on rather large databases, but fortunately these are OLAP based and not OLTP, so I generally don't have to worry about issues like these :)

The frequency of stalls with the search disabled definitely was less frequent. The google drop down was still an option, and while not as refined, very powerful and fast.

I have re-enabled for users, so all stalling from here on is with search enabled.

We didn't have all this problems before the server change, so a decent server should be able to host this forum without any problems.

Just my 2 cents.
We aren't even remotely close to using full capacity on the server we have. I am about 90% sure it's a configuration issue as we have more CPU, Ram, storage and newer PHP (7.x is supposed to be twice as efficient as 5.x which we had on the old server). Also the way the server works is that even once the load has passed 100% it still carries on working the task queue but with delays. We're average 25% CPU/75% RAM, so even with the spikes it copes rather well capacity wise. Disabling search was a good test that proved both that while it's not the only issue, it's definitely a factor.

That would depend on so many things... I'm not an SMF expert (even though I have run a couple of websites with SMF powered forums), but it could be something as simple as one or two inefficient database queries that cause the database to perform terribly.

In my job, I work on rather large databases, but fortunately these are OLAP based and not OLTP, so I generally don't have to worry about issues like these :)
This is my 10% doubt, something somewhere is erroring, or causing a table to lock. Search without an index is definitely a factor, attempting to create an index would involve putting the forum offline for at least 24h so it could generate properly as it really swamps the machine down. I'm making progress towards using a installing a different search option designed for large databases.

While I cannot offer any suggestions to help fix this issue, I do observe that being 7+hours ahead (earlier) than the USA, the slow loading is not apparent during my daytime, only once the majority of US-based users come online.

I am aware tapatalk has been spitting errors for a while, but last I looked it was a php7 thing that was currently unaddressed. What exactly were you trying to do (upload an avatar perhaps?)

Whoey, the site has been running well for me today.

I really like that the 'nesting quotations' has been disabled.  :tu:  :like:  :tu:  :like:

I came to despise the endlessly repetitive quotes of quote of quotes. So, if the site is running better without this feature......

THANK GOODNESS!!!!
Actually this is something I've been back and forth about. In general disabling it seems like a bit of a killjoy thing to do... however, when you remove that option you don't get pages and pages of nested quotes, in which every post has exactly the same words in it plus an extra addition... this makes searches less accurate and the indexing takes longer. It would be awesome to be able to completely exclude some of the for fun threads from the search index, but sadly it's all or none. We do have the filtering so if you are in a sub forum your search can be refined/restricted that way or by using the advanced search directly.

The only sad thing is the disable only applies to new posts, and the software isn't smart enough to remove old nested quotes by itself. So the massive task of cleanup has fallen to the poor moderators who are putting in a monumental effort.  :hatsoff:

Maybe you're posting more than you think?

I have that sometimes when driving to work in the morning.
Like: "wow, I'm here already?? How did I drive those last 2 miles?!".

So I can imagine you get the same thing with posts...

yeah means no reading or posting while I do some technosorcery behind the curtains.

I will attempt to sort it during a non peak period.

Much to my surprise, something somewhere aligned, and I could finally create and switch to an actual search index, which didn't take 27 years to create, nor is it bigger than the actual message table as before...  :ahhh



Could it be that the current search index is not entirely complete? I've been having some trouble finding posts using certain keywords. The number of search results seems to be a bit small and it looks like in some cases only posts from roughly 8-10 years ago are included in the results.

I have the same problems, I have some new soldiers I’d like to add to the ‘show us your soldiers’ thread. I just can’t find the thread. The newest post containing soldier is 8 years old when using the search.
Sadly as a mainly Tapatalk user I am using mto less and less as it just wont let me. Using a mobile web browser on the tablet is also difficult, same problem with search, but also the slow loading appears even slower than Tapatalk.
However, threads which I ticked to ‘follow’ before the server change load instantly when I get a new post notification. These load noticeably faster than any new threads I try to open.
Are there any reports I can pull off Tapatalk that may help?

I still have several todos that may improve that but as mentioned require some forum downtime to sort out.

It's really a question of when I am available and the forum is not in peak traffic.
