site taking an abnormally long time to respond
This morning, the server seems to be responding extremely slowly (took 10 minutes for the site to respond) as I was trying to access Bandamp. (also, the pages are loading slowly). I am having no other problems accessing other sites today. Is anything wrong with the server?

just thought i'd reiterate this problem... it's rather persistent.. do we know why?  I imagine somebody's aware of it, but in case not... well, now you are!

Yes, suffering it too. It takes several minutes before I can load any page...

it seems rather sporadic at times.  sometimes it loads just fine, but just moments later it'll laps back into a really slow fit.

Same here, but I don't know why.
IP response time looks fine
and download time is pretty fast (what I can expect with DSL3000)
Can someone find out that this is in all sections of the site or some specific site?

so far, it seems to be the entire site, Triton... The main site page does it, but usually doesn't take as long as the individual forum pages.  Specifically I've tried to enter the Pit, Lyric review, and Tech Support.

PM's tend to take about the same amount of time as the main page.

The main Forums page usually takes the longest... (maybe.)

Interesting that it doesn't every give a "server too busy" or "server not found" or "request timed out" message...

Yesterday I got a "database down for maintenance" just once however, and yes everything is dragging ass once you actually get on the site.

this message appears if there is a problem connecting the database.
it seems that MS IE doesnt have these problems in this manner, but firefox troubles with me too
maybe someone can doublecheck this?
I had timeouts for about 10 minutes sometimes but the server's cpu was only 3 seconds in use.
so it seems there are some probs outside the scripts and the database.

i have no problems in Opera (conerning error messages--- the site runs slowly still, but no errors.).  Firefox sometimes gives me some miscellaneous messages about the server... ( can't remember them right now, but i imagine it's the same thing that you're seeing.)  I never use IE :P

Hmm.. something just came to me last night while I was going to sleep---

What's the possibility of either of the following?

1)  We're suffering from a DoS attack http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DoS

2)  The script that you changes, Triton, that counts the members and guests on the site... Could it be that the script is somehow slowing down the site enormously while it refreshes its count?


I'll admit that the second is less likely, but cutting it out of the site for a test would be warranted, I think.  We ought to try anything since we're unsure of what's going on

ok
I replaced the count of active members with an "n/a" for the test.
And please read this post: http://forum.bandamp.com/Announcements/5155_page3.html#id8028

yes, i just read that, and I think you could be right... If these other ideas don't work, I'd say that getting a larger RAM supply would be a decent use of money, if Mud doesn't cover such expenses all by himself.
