forum slow today...
« on: January 19, 2010, 11:01:14 PM »
I know there's the release of V5, but I just took a look, and it's only about 400 guests and 60 members browsing the forums right now, and it's getting less and less responsive...

it's people downloading updates, after they get they install the final version of V5, and updates are on the same server as the forums  ::)

We hope, in the future, updates and forum are hosted in different servers...

It was very slow for some time (not so now) and that is saying something when you are on dial-up where slow is a way of life ;D

I guess we were getting a hit from all the updates/installation file downloads.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.5.6015 (build 22.5.7263.730) UI 1.0.711/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Well, the forum server is not hosting nor providing the updates/downloads since you-know-which incident in December 09.
We will focus on optimizations of forum, blog, support and also web servers to be faster.

Planning to redesign Avast forum?

I think such modifications can cause the server to be down

Correct me if I am wrong.

Strange today for me not so much difference from normal dial-up (slow) use of the forums.

sometimes I just got to leave an avast forum page loading, go browse something else and get back to it one or two minutes later...funny as it doesn't time out.
