Title: Modsite slow
Post by: vbgamer45 on December 19, 2012, 09:54:14 AM
Reporting slowness with the modification site.

Just wondering what makes the modsite when updating a mod?

For instance I am just updating the version numbe for SMF on  a mod and not doing a notify to users, nor uploading new files.

But seems to take over a minute just to update.

yeh this is a known issue and its been worked on.  Something to do with how the servers are configured I think I was told.

Anything can be done to help. I notice even the main forum gets under stress. Now is that due to db server or just webserver with many requests.

If many requests maybe look into a service like cloudfare might cut down on bot traffic

I am not 100% sure but I think there is plan on a server upgrade but I have only heard this through rumour mill.

Yeah the hardware is being made ready for that actually.

The current problem with *uploading* are being investigated, they do not appear to be related to stress at all but in some server-side handling. How it suddenly out of the blue started happening is not entirely clear... Yet. ;)

As for the current high loads, the servers are a bit pissed off because I gave them 300.000 emails to send out at once...
It will clear up within the next few hours judging by the progress. :)
Sorry for any inconvenience.
