Am I the only one?

The site has been much slower than any other site I visit.

Yeah, occasionally it gets really slow for me too. Sometimes it gives up loading and I get a 503 error page. Seems to be happening more frequently lately.

We will initiate some greater monitoring of SLA for the site, so we can hold our hosting providers accountable.

Please post a timestamp in this thread when you see the issue, so we can have more ammunition/evidence to provide to them.

Our hosting provider is upgrading us to a new server tomorrow night.

Hopefully this will help to address the issues that have been seen.

Last night it was so bad I gave up trying to report it here. And then just now as I tried to post this, it timed out again.

This site can’t be reached

www.buczone.com took too long to respond.

Looks like it's time to upgrade the server again.

Yeah, very bad. Plus it's draft week, hope we can handle the extra traffic.

Thursday's going to be an interesting test then. It's going to be just as active as a gameday(Hell, sometimes more because we have more lurker traffic).

We've moved to a new hosting provider, since our previous one wasn't adding up. This is day 1 on the new host, but I hope this should solve these slowness issues.

New results are looking a lot better with the new hosting provider. On the old host, even with no traffic(it is a shared server) we've seen a minimum response time(not loading any pages) of up to 3 seconds for some sustained periods of time(that 3 second response time was averaged over 5 mins for it to register. At it's peak, it could have been much higher). This is even without the other various server side caching issues we've had.

Our new provider has much better stats, I just wanted to give a compare and contrast over the last 24 hours.
