Arrow Site Performance Issues Resolved

I have gotten to the bottom of what has been causing the major performance issues on SLU recently. It was related to the volume of spam and ip bans causing an increasing load for every request on the site. It has been corrected and I will be more aggressive with it moving forward. I am going to be doing some further database optimization over the weekend, but the worst of the performance problems seem to have been resolved.

Do we need to do anything like clear cache?

It wouldn't hurt but it shouldn't be necessary. The site was slow this morning but it's fine now. Maybe just close your browser and re-open it. I've found that can help quite often.

It's like finally remembering to disengage the emergency break, not like I've ever done that ..... lately

That did the trick. Thank you, and thanks Cris!

It was such that when I wanted to comment on something I chose not to, since it would take so long for the page to come up and then submit.

Y'all missed out on my great pearls of wisdom! Wait, that might be a bonus.

No, it was on the server side. It had so many ip addresses to check against to see if someone was banned that it was hanging.

Should we expect to see a rise in spam hits and returning nincompoops in the coming weeks?

Probably not, they tend to move on to other sites.

That's weird. I would have thought the system would only check IP addresses when creating a new account, not for every transaction. But the forums are so much more responsive now. Thank you!

Will the Live Feed wall come back, or was that also not helping performance?

Of course, iSpy is good, too, not complaining... It's just that I enjoyed seeing the images accompanying the posts.

I will probably put it back - I disabled a few things while I was trying to diagnose what was happening.

Let me say how nice it is to be able to click a reaction button and have it work immediately, or click Post Quick Reply and not wait a minute or more for a message telling me I have to wait such and so time blah blah, or when opening a forum POOF, there are the posts in it. It's like a new SLU. Only, you know, the same.

Let me know if you ever figure out why every time I click an emote button it shows up as my having clicked it twice. Only happens on my laptop which is not hardwired to the modem. It doesn't do it on any of the desktops.

And no I can't hardwire my lappy. It stays in the bedroom and I live in an apartment so I'm limited as to what I can and can't do.

Cris, please don't fix it. It hardly ever happens with anyone but WolfEyes and when WolfEyes likes me I feel double special.
