Default Forum Speed...

So I know there has been threads about the speed of the Calguns Forum.

Has anything been done? Can anything be done?

I'm not an expert but you would think something could be done?

Yeah, assuming CG is hosted by an Internet service provider network ISP and you are not running your own servers. I think you should have them provide a report on both network and server performance. You may need to throw more hardware and bandwidth at the problem.

It might seem anomalous because of the current interest in the 2A issues, but I don't see interest in 2A on CG declining anytime soon.

There are other Forums that have experienced the same influx of users but they seem to be running fine.

I really like CG but it's been painfully slow.

Today especially!

I don't know what's more discouraging - the proposed bans, or the influx/problems it is creating with inventory and forum speed

Why do we ask, and ask, and then get no response? Kestryll, I know you're trying, but tell us what's going on. It's been like this since November.

It's been like this since way before November. But it's only getting slower and slower. The past few days there are times I don't even log-in because the forum won't load.

I think this problem needs to be seriously addressed because it's not going away and it's only getting worse.

If money is the issue, ask for donations. Give us a number. It does absolutely nothing for CGN or combating anti-gun laws if the website won't function.

Hosted server issues in regards to max utilization, as has been mentioned in the past by Kest.

Yet as we all know, that is resolvable. However either the hosting service architecture is at issue or perhaps they are asking for more cash to do anything. Heck if I know...

It has been horrible lately. At times utterly unusable as the 'connecting' icon just spins indefinitely. This is on FIOS with 25mb pipe.

I 100% agree... this is a very good post!

I hate to always give analogies - but I spent years on a car forum that got so bogged down I don't bother anymore... believe it or not, that partially swayed my thousands of dollars hobby to my current addiction (which partially lead me here).

This may not be a popular "2A" reason (and believe me, I'm all about 2A!)... but I agree with this post - keep up with demand and if fees need to be increased to do so, I'm more than willing... don't even ask, just tell me how to fund (but please address the issue).

I agree, maybe this should be a fee based site and we could improve the server capacity and get a lobbiest in SAC.

Let's just say - throwing more hardware at it - didn't solve the problem.

We're working with Kes to reconfig some of his software.

It's re-indexing.

Use the little button at the top of the screen that says - "CGN Google Search" ( fall upper right )

I know I am new on here and haven't had a whole lotta action but I would love to help out with the speed issues on the site. I think with a few small tweeks I could have the site running a little faster. If someone involved with website issues wanted to get in contact with me I could talk in detail about some of the <head> section issues I see along with some in the footer for the analytics.

I've been avoiding the site because of the speed issues. It is like traveling back in time to 2400 baud dial up on Netscape Navigator. Painfully slow.

It took 2 minutes and 40 seconds from the time I clicked "post" before the site responded.

Somone please contact zonerdck as calguns.net has been crawling this entire weekend and I am in a location with a download speed of 52.9 Mbps and upload 36.8 Mbps and 6ms ping so it is definitely not the connection.

Sorry everyone, we re-indexed the main post table starting an hour and a half a ago. Didn't realize it would completely lock up the ability to post in the meantime.

Should be good now.

( and we'll put the site in Maintenance mode next time. )

Would it help at all to selectively move out some of threads that have been dead for five years? Not drop them, but 'archive' them in a separate place than the rest of the traffic?

Then people could search on the current database and separately on the archives if they didn't get what they want.

Databases just run better when they're smaller and less cluttered.

I was thinking the same thing, as it was so slow I thought it was a DDoS, as all the Anti-s are trollin' even FB now a days... however, because www.calguns.net works fine, and it only drags when you hit the /calgunforum/. I have been trying to get here for >25 min-ish now.
