Forum is Sluggish

Question

Since some of the tweaking and the slight downtime last night for a few minutes the forum has been very sluggish on user's systems. Two have confirmed so far. Using the mouse wheel to scroll down is like using a Windows 98 computer and watching it react in slow motion. The pages seem to also be loading up slower.

You still experiencing it? I haven't really noticed but then again I'm on fiber optic so idk. Then again I have noticed a few times were it took a few seconds to load a page.

It's still sluggish. I'm on a 25Mbps line so it's not the Internet. I'm using Firefox. I currently do not have any other browsers installed to check and you can't pay me to open up IE. Just got my RMA drive in today so I'll be setting up my system permanently (if the drive works this time). I'll try it on the new install once it's complete.

I've been checking the forum all day, and have not experienced any slow down at all. Since you are using Firefox, try running the profiler to see if any javascript is taking a long time to complete. My initial page loads are timing in around 300-400ms, and a little over 2s for full rendering to complete. From a server perspective, there isn't anything causing this.

Of course it could be the hard drive spindle speed maybe the drive spinning up or something odd since it's older. Maybe his new one will fix things.

I know how to use Profiler to troubleshoot but is there a way to export the results to like idk an xml or something?

In the Network tab and only choosing JS the GETs take over 1600ms to complete; however, the longest individual one takes 63ms to load. Not sure if that is what you were talking about. I didn't even know this thing existed. :turned:

 

EDIT:

The long page load time I've found is 1.5 seconds. The front page loads in .56 seconds. It's not the load times really. It's the scrolling. Scrolling with a mouse wheel it terrible. it's smooth as silk on all other sites I've visited. This has only started happening in the last couple of days so I don't know if it has anything to do with edits that have been done on the forum in that time.

I have smooth scrolling and no loading issues. CSS will not be the issue ... and unknown properties could be things added for cross-browser functionality.

 

Have you tired using other browsers and experienced the same issue or not? I use Firefox, and it works fine for me. If you have a better result with other browsers, then I'd say you have some Firefox options that need to be optimized or you have an add-on that is causing the problem ... are you per chance using "Stylish" or something else new in the last two days?

My average JS load time is right around 300ms.

 

The next thing to try in Firefox is forcing it to reload with addons disabled and see if you experience the same thing. Firefox->Help->Restart with Add-ons Disabled.

 

Also, which JS is taking the longest time to complete?

I haven't changed a thing in FF in the since I installed it you guy did the forum switch. It ran smooth until a couple days ago when some forum changes hit. Haven't changed anything on my end and other sites work fine. Just the STEP forums that are sluggish while scrolling in the last couple of days.

 

I haven't tried other browsers yet. I'm actually about 3mins away from sticking in my new hard drive to see if it works and if so I'll be installing Windows 8. So I may be gone for a bit.

Before you do anything though, please confirm whether or not the issue persists across browsers :;):

I did as S4N suggested and it's back to normal. Restarted with add-ons enabled and still normal....weird. The only add-on I have installed currently is Adblock Plus. It's never given me any issues before so I'm going to chalk it up to something bad in memory because I also cleared the cache to no avail. I never did close and reopen the browser though. Never even thought about doing that because FF never gave me such a problem before when I'd kept it open for weeks on end. Haha!

He already stated he has no other browsers installed, and that you couldn't pay him enough to open up IE. :P

I rarely close my browser either. Maybe you didn't restart it after you installed Adblock Plus? Can't remember if that plugin requires a browser restart.

      When creating a new account, forum.step-project.com is sending the following validation link:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global§ion=register&do=05
       
      where it should be:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=register&do=05
       
      Similarly, the auto validation link is broken:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global§ion=register&do=auto_validate&uid=xxxx&aid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
       
      but it should be:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=register&do=auto_validate&uid=xxxx&aid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
       
      Finally, the https interface is open with a bad certificate and an admin management access. Even if you don't care about secure access, you should at least close down that interface since it's a separate running instance. Alternatively if you're using it for admin operations you should assign a non-default port so it won't get accessed by mistake.

      Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this, so forgive me if it's not and please move it to the right section.I've noticed that using the search feature provided by the Tapatalk app just runs an infinite search with no results.Using the mobile site or the full site, there are no issues so I'm not sure if this relates to the API or the site itself.Could someone test this to see if it's working as intended?Thanks
