Very slow response RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    Last couple of weeks the response from this site often is very slow. Today it is even slower. I click on the link and then have to wait from 20 seconds to 3 minutes before that link opens. 

    Am I the only one with the problem?

    I am using Google Chrome, but I've tried IE 9 and it took even more time.

  • We spent some time today attempting to resolve this. We certainly figured out something and made a few updates today (an hour or so ago). Report back on what you see, hopefully we resolved most of it. Let us know.

  • Naomi,

    you are not the only one. I noticed this since starting to work. Using IE 8.

  • Hello, 

    I'm connected with a 40Mb line not far from one of the main ports from Internets. The forums become to slow to help others and that is not the first time lately.

    Can this be tested more times (loged in).

  • Yes, I let Brent know. For me it's almost to the point I can not use it.

  • I agree. I just pinged Brent again. Yesterday it was bad already, but today is even worse. BTW, sometimes it's OK, like I was able to answer your message quickly right now.

  • Today (right now) it is much better than yesterday, but still far from ideal. The maximum wait time seems to be around 30 seconds.

  • Specifically when you click a thread title form the forum's list of threads?

    For example, you click a thread from this page: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/threads

    That's the wait time you referenced?

    Thanks!

  • Ed,

    this is more ( at least for me ) if you try to open a thread provided either by "My Forums Threads" or "My Alerts".

  • Trust me, there is some problem somewhere. It is inconsistent thought, but that doesn't matter, we need to figure it out. We have some things being smoke tested and pushed out throughout the day to help with the situation.

  • Usually it's when, suppose, I'm reading forum threads and then want to switch to check My Threads or My Profile. This is when things go bad.

  • The speed much improved. It is still not ideal when switching from My Threads to forum, checking for Unread, etc., but the wait time is less than 30 seconds for the longest wait.

  • Brent,

    you have done a good job. I don`t have any issues anymore with the loading of the pages.

    Thanks

  • Actually, I think it's better. I just switched to T-SQL forum, clicked on Unread. I counted to 8 (in Russian) and the list appeared. I think it's a good enough speed, hopefully this fix will stay and if something can be improved more, then it will be even better.
