Title: Problems loading the board
Post by: Julians_Wife on May 16, 2006, 09:41 AM
Just wanted to bring this up and see if it's just a few of us having problems (I know Tan said same thing), but it seems like ever since you switched hosts CD the board has been alot harder to get into some times. Like just this morning it took me over 5 mins to get in here.

Anyone else noticing this too?

Same here Shake :(.  Couldn't load the org from either my laptop or my desktop when I tried around 9 pm EST last night.  Before that I didn't really see any difference with speed etc. vs before.

Yeah I had the same problems last night on both my lap-top and desktop. I just figured it has to do with people accessing the org at that sametime.

I've been having problems getting on the board and even just loading pages also.

So glad to hear it's not just me having problems. The main page comes up(the red one) but then I can't enter it. I don't care for the new software (sorry cat-dog), I've found it to be really slow ever since we made the switch.

It's not the software.. it's the server.. The software has various code upgrades which make it faster than the old board by default.

I've submitted support requests to try and get this resolved.

It took me 5mins to load this page so I could even reply.

Please, if you are experiencing these issues, please post in this thread (if you can), as I've linked it in my support ticket.

Sorry everyone for the inconvenience this has caused.

I don't think it's a software problem KC, if it were we'd probably be seeing conflict errors at times, usually that's what happens with scripts. More than likely it's the server. Scripts can cause things to go slow sometimes, but if you're on a good server, shouldn't really have any problems speed wise.

Hey cat-dog - this afternoon is has been bruuuuuutally slow.  I tried from home, from a Charbucks, and from a client who is running a T1 pipe right to the net - no go.  I just got home and tried again and it is PAINFULLY slow.  The "show unread posts since last visit" function just hangs forever.

I realize you're doin' the best you can and I'm not bitchin' I'm simply documenting as you asked us to.

A thought - I personally would not mind "donating" annually to the org if it would mean we could get on a decent server.  I do this on a couple other sites I'm on and since this is such a great place to hang out I'd have no problem doing so here.  Others have used paypal to faciliate this but it's just an idear.  Thanks!

I have noticed a few instances in which your database server is
bogged down by one user submitting to many processes at once. Normally,
we kill the processes and send a warning to the user, which usually
resolves the issue. I suspect that several users producing high loads is
to blame for the recent issues with your site.
We are doing everything possible to clear up issues of this nature and
apologize for the inconvenience.

hopefully they figure things out soon. (took 6mins to submit this post)

Well as a general rule with virtual hosting, they don't like you to use over 2% of resources and when you do, they start throttling your services. Plus on virtual if someone else on the server is sucking alot juice, everyone on that server suffers, I don't care what they tell ya, they let it happen b/c they don't make much of a profit, if any off of virtual hosting. That's why the rates are so cheap too and they cram a whack of ppl on them to try and make a profit.

Hosting is a dirty business for some ppl.

It's actually a user with a hosted domain on the same server - the virtual hosting JW described. None of the goofballs here on the forum are responsible :)

You hacking the server or sending a shitload of traffic fishy? LOL That would be the only way really a "user" could affect the board.

Or they're telling you that's what the problem is CD and throttling you ....

It only took 15 min wait to make this post and main page disappeared for a bit too.

I think I used virtual hosting for a whole 60 days back in '98 and will never use it again or recommend it to anyone, after I lost a few K in revenue ...... no thanks.

I did just get a newsletter about 10mins ago saying they were adding a bunch of new servers, and would be doing some work trying to even out the load on the servers by moving high demand sites to servers that are more accommodating.

If things continue to be a problem, I'll put in a support ticket to try and get things resolved.

going to be switching over on the 16th (or sooner even).. the current place assured me they would be monitoring to ensure there's no more downtime - so we should be good for the time being.

Not a problem but instead of having the wood paneling on the sides of the boards its just stretched out.
Is that a change or just something wrong on my end?

Loading awesome btw.
Title: Re: Problems loading the board
Post by: cat-dog on Jul 01, 2006, 12:30 PM
hmm I did just update the code a bit to load the site quicker. I tested things out in both FF & IE with all the themes, and didn't have any problems.

you could try doing a control + f5  or control + refresh to reload the site in case there was a page in your cache maybe.

let me know
Title: Re: Problems loading the board
Post by: DavidB_Bubbles on Jul 01, 2006, 12:30 PM
Yeah mine is loading with the wood paneling first then the textual information second. It never loaded that way before. There is a line through the header (I guess it's called) running between the www.trailerparkboys.org the word "Message Forum" all the way across. I also cannot read the chatbox :( unless I highlight it. Okay I just clicked preview message and it had my text over the wood paneling so it was hard to read.  :bubs: :julian: :ricky:
Title: Re: Problems loading the board
Post by: cat-dog on Jul 01, 2006, 12:44 PM
I got the space in the header fixed, seems it was only an IE problem.

I did notice in the dark themes that the shoutbox text colours alternate between users, which it doesn't on the light ones - I'll see if I can get this fixed asap. I can see 1 line of blue, and then 1 line is black, weird..  - NOW FIXED

Everything else though, at least that I've checked out in both of your themes seems to work.


did a control+f5 reload fix anything?

Post by: DavidB_Bubbles on Jul 01, 2006, 01:23 PM

I got rid of the 'table' layout and replaced it with a 'div' design.. stupid me only just realized that tables don't load until all the data inside them is loaded (which is why the right wood panel would be the last to load) - while 'divs' load everything up as it is.  seems to be making a huge difference for me anyways lol

Title: Re: Problems loading the board
Post by: cat-dog on Jul 12, 2006, 12:48 PM
lol.. I did some refuckulating, and I guess it worked. I actually had setup some restrictions for viewing the gallery due to many people linking the images on their websites, and myspace, etc.. and I guess somehow it wasn't handling things when the person came from www.tpb.org only tpb.org, which would have blocked a lot of poeple out - but not if you typed in the URL like I had.. kinda odd setup instructions :oops:

glad we're back in business though..

as well the hosting company said they would be doing some maintenance/testing on the server in the next few days - so if there are any major problems, it's likely due to this, and nothing to worry about.

I guess everyone knows that the ORG was down this morning.  At least I could not get in, and when I did I was the only one here.  The funny thing was I was able to get back in after a restart.  But I don't think that had anything to do with it.  I had to restart for other reasons, and I was able to get to other websites before I had to restart   :bubs:

Anyway I have a bit of a problem when every I load the Forums homepage.  There is a gap between the right side (as I look at it) wood paneling and the header logo. The gap starts at the top of Randy's shoulder and runs all the way down to the TrailerParkBoys.org - Info Center and the shoutbox where the paneling is once again fine.  This is only one the Forums homepage. If I go anywhere else it's fine  :ricky:

Yeah I noticed that the clock is all messed up as well.  The problem that I alluded to earlier is no longer present.  The gap has not been something that happens all of the time.  But I have noticed it on both my laptop and desktop.  It has been happening at least once a day for the past 4 or more days.  Like Fishy said it's not a  big deal really  :ricky: But something that I thought I would bring up.
Title: Re: Problems loading the board
Post by: cat-dog on Jul 20, 2006, 10:50 AM
Trying to figure out why the clock is screwed.. I didn't touch a damn thing. If you go into your profile, under the look & layout prefrences, there's a option called Time Offset: - if you click the (auto detect) button beside, it will adjust your time to the correct settings.. I havn't done this yet for myself though, as I'm waiting to hear back from the hosting provider about why the forum would be 6 hours off..

I've been working on things this morning, to hopefully sort out any problems. I recieved the same error message this morning, but was not able to get it again when I refreshed.

Doing some maintenance on the databases atm, and trying to speed things up with some cacheing.

Title: Re: Problems loading the board

Great!
Just making sure you knew...seems a lil better already.
Title: Re: Problems loading the board
Post by: cat-dog on Sep 06, 2006, 09:52 AM
Yeah, I think part of the problem was some of the database tables (posts, topics, etc..) that get used often were converted to a different format to speed things up. Unfortunately the tools I have access to for doing routine checks/optimization don't cover the different format, so I had to get a server admin to optimize them.

The host also just installed a caching tool which should speed things up greatly, since I'm not modifying the source code much lately since the big forum switch, and re-setting up.

Please let me know if you have problems though - often if I report problems that seem to only be affecting me, the hosting support tends to lean on the problem being on my end, rather than theirs - since there is only 1 complaint, or instance.


also.. it seems that Yahoo's search indexing bot has been having a hay-day grabbing info, so I found a way to limit the time between indexing so it only scans about half as often now - freeing up resources meant for actual users.

I was having the same problem this morning, but it seems ok now.

I have been problem I have been having for a couple of weeks, the index of the forums will partially load up & then Internet Explorer freezes up. All I've been doing is Ctrl+Alt+Delete, then opening IE up again & everything seems fine. This is the only site that I frequent that causes it to freeze like that. I'm still on dial up, so I don't know if it's a real problem or just something to do with my connection.

It is definately a server problem, I ran a few tests and the hops are fine at the moment (no problem logging in etc.)

This morning early (UK time) before I went to work, there was a problem, I carried out a trace to make sure (pinged the IP address).

I honestly think when one is making so many hops, sooner or later you will run into problems.

This is usually only temporary as long as the troublesome hop knows it is the problem.

When I carried out a trace, I found there are 13 hops, as you can imagine, there is a lot of scope there for problems to occur  :)

Now would be a good time to remind people to click the google ads on the pages here.  CD doesn't make any money from the site, he actually pays out of his pocket to keep this place going.

I see the ads have been moved to the top where they're not as easy to ignore. :P I've been clicking away.

Is there any way to maybe put a reminder message on the main forum page, make it one of the messages that fades in & out, that clicking the ads support the site?

Now would be a good time to remind people to click the google ads on the pages here.  CD doesn't make any money from the site, he actually pays out of his pocket to keep this place going.

sadly.. I just got this quote in an email from google..

Quote
It has come to our attention that invalid clicks have been generated on
the Google ads on your site(s). In the future, we may adjust your
payment for any days during which invalid clicks occurred in order to
properly credit advertisers for any invalid activity.

As a reminder, any method of generating invalid clicks is strictly
prohibited. Invalid clicks include but are not limited to any clicks
that are generated through the use of robots, automated clicking tools,
manual clicks by a publisher on the publisher's own web pages, or a
publisher encouraging others to click on his ads.

Publishers may not provide incentives of any kind to encourage or
require users to click on the ads, due to the potential for inflation
of advertiser costs. If we find your account to be in violation again,
action may be taken against your account and payment may be withheld.
Please be sure to review and remain in compliance with our Terms and
Conditions and program policies.

so... unfortunately I'm unable (being the publisher) to encourage anyone to click on the ads, but you are free to do so at your own leisure I suppose.. I'm guessing they'd be anal if other mods/admins encouraged people too.. so I guess you won't be hearing about the ads from us anymore..

Apparently my google adsense account has been disabled for 'click fraud' .. while I was gone most of the weekend.. Even after I posted telling people not to click the ads.. I filled out some form to hopefully get the account reinstated, or find out some more detail.. but they're withholding my payment that's been adding up since Jan 1st.. so it look's like I get to foot another server bill.. can't wait to tell the wife.

One of the google ads was for the Showcase site, where it was a quick link to the TPB's page.  They had the download for the latest episodes and the picture gallery.  I'm sure alot of peeps were clicking on that one.

Frig, Cat-Dog. I'm sorry about this 'click fraud' crap & that you're stuck with the bill. I just don't get what the big deal is, just because more people are clicking? We've certainly had more people sign up to the board, so of course there's going to be more activity. As you said a couple of posts ago, it seems kind of silly.

I've done some research and I've found that on the same day that you received that error, Vanny: by sheer coincidence In 1907, A dutch bishop forbade Christians in Holland from joining The Dutch Textile Union. In isolation that may not seem so significant.  :?  However...

Now let me take you to August 18, 1957... 50 years later to the day! A lady by the unassuming name of Betty Dodd wins the LPGA Colonial Golf Open. Pure coincidence?? :-k

I believe these three events to be inexorably linked through the space/time continuum. If you can find the common threads... If we can just identify the smoking gun.. then I believe we can get the nebula of this problem, Gentleman - and rip it out by it's insidious roots.

I guess most of you know that the Org was down today for a few hours.  Apparently the servers were being updated with new software and that was the reason for the problems.  Not sure if everything is back to normal though.  One thing that I have noticed is that I do not have the graphic header of certain pages. ie: the toaster oven with the chicken fingers with Randy & Lahey. Oh I can see it on the homepage and on the page when I click on the "Show unread posts since last visit" button. But I cannot see it on this page now or when I go to any of the boards/sub-boards.  The graphics want to load but it eventually goes blank and all I have is a black screen.  If I right click on the graphic before it goes away I get the You're an Idiot message  :lol: So just saying hopefully everthing will be back to normal soon

I don't know if it has to do with my computer today, or if it is site related, but the picture at the top of the screen (Randy, Lahey & the chicken fingers) has been wonkier than normal. I know we've had an issue with the picture not showing up at all at the top of some of the screens (which usually happens after I reply to a thread), but today it's like taken one of the portions of the picture & repeated/tiled it.

Some people's avatars are not showing up (Fishy's, Shake's, DavidB's come to mind). Is anyone else having this problem? Also still getting the red x's instead of the header message at the top of some of the pages. I know there are some fixes in the works for the org, just I'd like to know if this is something wide-spread or isolated to my computer.

I'm not having any issues with avatars Melba. If the site is slow and you are on dial-up, that may be causing the problem. I still get the red x's.

I haven't been having problems with avatars lately.  But I don't even get the red X's in the header section, just a black, blank, space.

I cleaned out my temporary internet files & cookies, I can see the avatars now, so it must have been something to do with that. By the way Fishy, I'm on cable now!

As many of you have noticed. Some kind of glitch happened during a server update and the time is off.   You can fix the clock by going to your profile, then look and layout preferences, then on the Time Offset: click on the auto detect.  This should fix it.  At least temporarily.  Because you never know if/when the glitch is fixed the time might be all screwed up again  :P
