it does say the serverís resources are under a high demand. I suppose it is a shared server, so maybe the other user is Amazon😁

There is a problem with the forum and it's slowing it right down.  :(  I'm looking into it, thanks!

Nope, not a shared server.  ;)  Well, only by the N Gauge SouthEast show website and a couple of other very low traffic site of mine.

Iíve had exactly the same message three times this morning.

All ok again now though.

Has it a direct internet connection or is it going via a gateway?

Whatever it was, it's back to normal this morning. Thanks @Tank (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=profile;u=2) and team. :thankyousign:

Seems fine here too this morning.
Mind you, it is still before 8-00!
Title: Re: Too busy?

Maybe someone has put the boot in on rebooted the server as it's heaps better
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Lawrence on August 09, 2020, 05:09:53 PM
Is there still issues with the servers chaps? Have found it very slow (from 2 different computers in 2 different counties) this past week and just got Error 500 messages this afternoon which suggests server problems I think.
Also found moving from page to page very slow when they do load
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: ntpntpntp on August 09, 2020, 05:55:35 PM
Funny, I was just thinking how it's been faster for the past few days than it was not so long ago.  I'm getting good responses to page links etc.

Maybe the internet cables struggle too push all the data up North? Seriously though, have tried all the usual things like clearing cache etc but finding it slow here in Fife and also in Dundee. Apart from the errors, it took nearly 10s for the page to refresh after I made that last post.

Post by: Newportnobby on August 09, 2020, 09:10:57 PM
It was not so bad earlier today but now it's like a sloth carrying a bag of very heavy shopping. From clicking 'Reply' it took 40 seconds to allow me to do so ::)

Out of curiosity (I have no clue about these things) the young (in his forties is young to me) guy next door has been working from home since the Covid-19 struck and he works in the telecomms industry. He told me last week he has some mega speed internet system due to his work needs, and I'm just wondering whether his system is swamping poor li'l me with my BT Infinity?

Server seems to be under too much stress this evening.
Iíve had this message a few times in the last ten minutes.
Anyone else experiencing problems?

Even with much of the forum hidden to guests I still find it a lot slower than other sites I frequent but do appreciate it has speeded things up a little. Still get the odd 'timed out' message now and then
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Papyrus on October 02, 2020, 10:25:46 AM
I found the forum a bit slower than usual yesterday but it seems back to normal today.

Everything quick and normal on the phone while having a beer at the club.

OK, so I'm lying in bed looking at me phone, but the forum seems slow tonight. Just the Antipodes, I guess?

The forum is wizzing along here right now but was pretty slow at about 10-30 this morning.
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Newportnobby on January 10, 2021, 04:53:16 PM
Getting a few of these again

It was slow for me earlier this afternoon but seems to be okay now. (Thought the signal might have been struggling in the fog).
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Dorsetmike on January 10, 2021, 06:01:28 PM
I've had a few of those "Too busy" pop ups, someone's obviously not feeding Herbert the hamster again.
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Newportnobby on January 13, 2021, 11:10:55 AM
Forum hardly useable this morning.
Slow as a snail carrying a bag of heavy shopping and error messages all over the place. Keep being kicked off with "Sorry. SMF was unable to connect to the database. Busy" and the usual "resources under too high demand".
Have managed to successfully make 2 posts in Ĺ an hour so far :unimpressed:

No, Trev. Any other website = no problems.

It's better now so someone must have put another 50p in the meter.

Too many Lancastrians on the forum maybe. We could limit the number at any time of the day, that would sort it  :thumbsup:

I'm not a Lancastrian :no: :nerner:

You're using Lancastrian phone lines, that's good enough for me  :P

Can somebody feed the hamster please? The forum is, for me, extremely slow this morning, (including a 'too busy' message').

Incredibly slow here this morning.
Two or three times I havenít been able to access the forum at all.
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Newportnobby on January 14, 2021, 10:55:43 AM
There seems to be no logic here. I can open 9 messages and each will take anything up to half a minute or more to open and then the 10th opens almost immediately ??? :confused2:

Intermittently sluggardly pedestrian this morning.

But then itís raining a lot so maybe the hamster wheel bearings are rusting up. :hmmm:

Not bothering me though. :no:
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: port perran on January 14, 2021, 11:04:06 AM
As I say very, very slow - thatís on ipad, phone and laptop.
I keep getting this message :

Other sites on the net at normal speeds, so is obviously a Forum problem

I've noticed no appreciable difference in the speed of this site as compared to the Internet as a whole. I use the Internet for a few hours a day for a variety of tasks and it's been sluggish for the past year - even before the Covid pandemic. It's remarkable to me that there haven't been significant crashes of entire regions of the Internet. This technology is just incredibly complex!

Definitely been a problem over the past week, sometimes taking 20 seconds for a page to load. Slightly better this morning.
I have high speed fibre connection and all my other sites are fine.

I've cleared the forum cache again, but the forum, due to having a lot of add-ons over the years does get sluggish from time to time.  I'm waiting for a new upgrade from Simple Machines which has been under test for many months.  Then, an expensive upgrade!
Title: Re: Too busy?
Post by: Papyrus on January 25, 2021, 05:34:55 PM
Eyup, the forum is suddenly taking ages to refresh, and it has already timed out on me once. Is anyone else experiencing this, or do I just need to talk nicely to my laptop?

 Just happy being patient

Been very slow in general today loading pages, however, no timeouts and all tasks eventually performed
