As I've said it's being monitored and referred to our hosting. No need to to keep me-tooing.

Not intended as a 'me too', but I'm not convinced that the problem is related (solely) to ads. I access the site from several devices, with and without Adguard, and the slow/522 errors occur in both cases.

 

Hope that this is of some help.

It isn't, I tested that too. Hosting denies the problem's at their end, they're blaming Cloudflare for it but I've proved that's not the case. I will continue to monitor and poke people with sticks. Dediserve support isn't what it used to be I'm afraid.

Nothing is.  I assume Mod4's diodes have worn out.  He's been very quiet of late :unsure:

Various tweaks to the Apache software on the server to see if heavy loads can be better handled but we won't know until peak times if that's been successful. All seems OK at the present.

The slowdown seems to be cyclical.  I suppose its load related in some way.  The worst instance I experienced was after submitting a post earlier in the week, it just sat there with the "submit" button greyed out and eventually popped up a message that the post had failed.

 

Of course, after refreshing the page, it turned out that the post had gone through quite happily!  I try to be relaxed about these things....

 

(FYI this post took about 10 seconds to go through the system)

I often find that performance changes from fine to very slow to 522 error and then back to fine again within a very short period. Always been a problem but worse recently; the 522 errors are new—starting this week.

Reports of observations prior to the work carried out today are superfluous.

Been having a mooch around the site this evening on and off for the last 30-45mins, seems to be quite zippy so far. Only one slight pause when going to the home page but that was only about 5 secs, nothing like the 30sec times before. So far so good.

The site definitely seems to have come to life again. No significant hangs seen today.

Further comment: Posting is almost instantaneous today as compared with a few days ago when it was taking a really long time.

There are still some strange things going on. When I signed-in this morning, I got this even though the sign-in actually worked correctly:

I've seen this before on several occasions and in every case the sign-in takes place despite the warning.

Don't worry about it. It's just the software getting its knickers in a transient twist.

JJGraphics I've been getting that message since the current forum software was introduced. As the sign in has worked (despite the warning) I just ignore it.

Are you using a bookmarked URL? It may be out of date. Bookmark rmweb.co.uk/community and see if that resolves it.

Seems to be grinding a bit at the moment.

Yes. Takes 20 or 25 seconds to load a page.

I am monitoring it and looking at performance Vs traffic levels so further reports won't be necessary. Monitoring is all I'll be doing today though.

Done that and logged in without the error message appearing.

 

Thanks Andy.

Bookmark is as above . . . and has been since the new forum software.

Running very slow at the moment, even got the Cloudflare error page!

(blaming RMweb, of course)

Fingers crossed . . . I am currently experiencing the best performance of the forums since the new software was introduced. It's been much better since Monday morning, but I did not want to speak too soon!

 

Thanks to Andy for whatever has been done.

There's now a scheduled restart of the Apache httpd service in the early morning each day to reduce the risk of hanging.
