hello folks,

for the past two weeks or so, I have noticed that ARF can be very slow to load when clicking on a thread's title, making a reply to a thread, or opening up a thread from an email notification.

it has been like this on all my computers and with different browsers. without listing all the usual (and then some) browser cleaning that I've tried, I can say that it is not my computers, internet connection (120+MB), or anything here b/c every other web page can be surfed like changing channels on the tv on every computer, tablet, or phone (apple or android).

ARF is the only one that hangs up quite often on all those devices.

has anyone else been noticing this ?

steve

for the last 5 minutes at the time stamp of this post, it would not load at all.

every other website that I visited in a second browser window flew like an eagle.

I too have noticed lately that it's been slower than usual at times, but not always. Most likely a server issue. Hopefully Alan can look into it when he sees this thread, or other evidence of the lagging.

Most of the slow loading for me has stopped; I think it had to do with the recent Firefox update, but frankly it also happened before that. I went to Options, ? Help, clicked on Restart with Add-ons disabled, then Start Firefox in Safe mode.
I'm using Windows 7 Professional.

I have noticed that I still have to click on the forward or back arrows sometimes more than once; annoying.

and, it has not worked this well in days to maybe a week-10 days.

it got to the point that it would hang up so badly that i just stopped trying.

at a few tries last night from my homepage, to favorites, then click on ARF link--it would try to load ARF for 3 seconds and then just go back to the home page.

all's well and i'm clicking pages on ARF like channel surfing (when i used to watch tv).

It's better than it was here, but still quite slow at times, taking forever to go from page to page, or for a reply to submit after the submit button is used. It's totally useless on Firefox, working much faster on Opera.

Its fine here and had no issues when Alan was working on the database.
Using the latest Firefox on Win Vista on a 2008 Dell.

I have 3 browser icons in my taskbar, since certain of them work better at particular sites. The daily driver, however, is Google Chrome, which I use here, and as such operates very well.

Hmm, not here, 10:11pm PST. What browser are you using?

1 more thing that has happened after the Firefox update: If I am on any website and pause for just a few minutes my computer will completely lock up; all I can do is move the curser. Can't reboot or do anything. Escape does not work. Often I will have to manually shut the computer off and start again.

Makes it damn difficult to go to the restroom or get another glass of wine.

Johnnysan, why don't you try using a different browser, so you can at least determine if it's the browser or your 'puter that's causing the problem. As previously stated, I have had NP using Chrome here.

Still slow sometimes, may take 20 seconds after clicking a link. Same thing different computers, different browsers.

IE for Win7

it is flawless on other sites. i have been surfing (again) tonight like changing channels on the TV.

for whatever reason, ARF is not at all as fast to load as it used to be, especially when making a reply to a post, making your own post, or editing a post.

:arrow: something has changed since about 10 days to 2 weeks ago.

I have found the problem. Basicly, after connecting to ARF the browser doesn't close the socket. Chrome runs into its 6 socket limitation, and even forcefully purging the pools doesn't release the sockets. Even after closing the tab that the page is loaded in.

Page loading: https://i.imgur.com/1bSt7kA.png

After closing tab: https://i.imgur.com/e3kRXoM.png

No sockets left after stopping and reloading: https://i.imgur.com/b2Qc3Wb.png

After flushing: https://i.imgur.com/TuodrtA.png

Won't load even after flush: https://i.imgur.com/dYHy3tk.png

Eventually the sockets timeout and things start working again for a bit: https://i.imgur.com/vExrfvM.png

Ive noticed this image doesn't load fully: images/sals.jpg But that may have nothing to do with it..
