Is it just me, or others having this again? For the last 20 min Lots of delays.

4:39-4:59 pm forum time.

You're not alone... I just had to wait like 30 seconds (since I clicked on my bookmarked link) for avast forum page to appear. Note that everything else is super fast at this moment.

...and nothing on the graphs. No excessive traffic, no extra hits, no CPU usage, lots of free ram and free worker threads...

Was it like 'page created in MANY seconds' or simply some net congestion? (may be something between you and The Planet).

I have been having slow page creation and page loads intermittently to-day.

Some of my page creations were in the tens of seconds and higher again.

Besides what I said in my last post, there have been numerous times when although the page creation is below a second, the status bar of firefox shows, Waiting for forum.avast.com... so there is something else over and above the intermittent slow page creation times for me.

Edit happening even now,

To be exact - if the Page created in N seconds is high, then the problem is 100% on the server. If it's low, it still may be problem on the server or elsewhere as well.

I think you can see from my images I have just added it is in the NNN seconds range for me again.

Then it's quite probable, that it's not caused by the network / server problems, but by your type of forum usage. You have probably too many records in various tables, because of your high activity. Since it's usually you and Tech, this may be going to be quite significant.

Which are these records? I have none email notifications set, none inbound/outbound IM messages stored...

Is this irony or you're talking seriously?
I can reach other sites easily... seems just a forum issue (Microsoft, Google, other forums... seem ok).

Simply I don't know. I'm sure it's not crawling right now because the server's hardware, since it's after the upgrade and according to all numbers and graphs it's going well. (And I've never seen anything higher than 1 sec since the upgrade).

Is it just the visiting the forum main board page to get the long load times?

Now it's working ok... I'm here http://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=unread;all and try to load the unread threads.
Then the thread pages does not open... Firefox keeps waiting and waiting... It could take some seconds to return and sometimes minutes and hours... Yesterday night I give up and go to bed... not that sleeping haven't make me well, I was needing it ;)

Today getting onto the forum was fine. It was going to the idividual forums that was the problem. For example clicking on say General topics, could cause a delay of minutes. If that opened, then clicking on a thread caused a delay. One thread I was going to reply to didn't change afer clicking the reply button. Just a staus bar that slooowly moved. Gave up, came back later, the forum was working properly then.

I don't have anything set up for notification etc. Just if I have a new message, the number will appear beside My Messages.

There seems to be a great difference in speed between being logged-in and not, and I have less than 100 posts. More recently, I've noticed a strange delayed response from the Avast server when updating VPS (manually), but not sure if it's related.

Well... try to be on-line a little more and you'll see that, from time to time, we're experiencing lags.
