DZ is slooooow ..

Recommended Posts

Hey,

We haven't noticed any slowing on our side - but it's quite possible.

Can you maybe see if it's an ad slowing it down? It may be noticible by displaying what is taking a while to load. Or by using Firebug (if you're using Firefox). Unfortunately due to ads being geo-targetted, we may not see the same ads you do and in turn not experience any load issues, which makes it difficult to troubleshoot.

Thanks for your reply.

Every page on DZ.com looks like an ad page, starting with giant letters on top:

VECTOR
CHUTINGSTAR
HD.untethered
The New Amex EveryDayCC
Naturally LANGKAWI: Explore 550 million year old natural wonders ....
...

below at the end of page:
GoPro
HD-untethered
DRIFT
Learn to skydive in Spain
Victorinox launches the new INOX watch ....
...

top down right side:
VECTOR
ParaGear
Angelfire Reserve
Chutingstar
....

The above collection is from the time period since I entered DZ. Com.edit: (to type this post, I mean)

Many, many ads while I'm trying to change into another forum. I don't remember having seen so many ads here before.

I know ads have to be ..... am I doing something wrong, perhaps??

Meso,

I came down here to ask if the Chinese bots are back and saw this. I use adblocker & Ghostery and every forum thread is running about 10-15 seconds for each click.

And. clicking on Post Reply just resulted in a fatal error
Nobody has time to listen; because they're desperately chasing the need of being heard.

It's about 18 seconds to perform an action on the site. All of my post replies are going 504 3/4 of the time, and saying unable due to maintenance, or traffic problems.

A ping to dz.com is 54ms, the trace rt is showing no hiccups across 14 hops.

Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

Thanks for the feedback with this, we're busy looking into it and I'll be forwarding an e-mail to the server host now to enquire about server stability.

There should be between 3 and 4 ads on each page (banner, right sidebar and footer) - if yours is showing differently, please attach a screenshot so that I can verify that it's not something like Malware adding extra ads.

But the errors are unlikely ad related.

Im still getting this error.

Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

When it is working, it is painfully slow. Today I am from a different computer, and a different IP, so the problem is not on my side.
