Why is this Forum so SLOW
« on: December 14, 2004, 04:53:45 PM »
I've noticed that lately the Alwil forum has become extremely slow.
It's getting very time consuming to help people because every access to the board takes a long time.
Hopefully some from Alwil has an answer to this problem.
I have highspeed access and I'm having problems. I can imagine what those with dialup access must be going thru. :'(

Same here... unbelievable slow. And I am on ADSL, very fast connection. No problems with other forums or any other web sites. Same thing happening if I try to visit these forums from my neighbour's PC, and he has Hi-Speed Cable connection.

Maybe Alwil is doing something regarding new forums... because I remember, they mentioned something regarding getting new forum engine around Christmas... yeepee !

It also might be that avast is getting more popular.  :)

There are indeed more and more people who have heard/are using Avast, but that is not the reason why the board has problems as you can see at the "Forum History (using forum time offset)" section in the stats. Visitor, posts etc stays about the same. So there is no huge increase of traffic to the board all of a sudden.

Painfully slow here in the U.K. also, started about 5 days ago for me.

Broadband cable connection and haven't noticed any difficulties with posting to the other forums I use.

Latest error message below

The forums are most likely hosted on the same server as the main avast site. It may not be busier here, but the main site might be getting more traffic.

I'm almost 100% sure this is true... the only possible explanation at this point.

Same problem for me. I am on cable. I sometimes get a timeout error using my particular browser. Have been noticing this for almost a week now. Thought it was just me but guess not. :)

That's what I thought at first too till I started getting some IM's from quite a few users.
That's why I posted this in the first place. It's hard to help and hard to ask questions if you can't communicate.

Bob, I agree. You at least had an advantage over me. I never received any IMS from anyone concerning the slow throughput here. Of course I also didn't IM anyone from my end asking about it. :) Good thing you posted something about it. Maybe someone with the power to either make a change or let us know something will post something here to let us know what's going on. I suspect that the servers are just probably overloaded or they are having some sort of problem?
