Slow loading

Does anyone else find that the site works OK for a few minutes, and then it's very slow and sluggy?

I have.  I just assumed it was the internet connection at work because it tends to be a bit glitchy like that.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

I have been having problems like that with it lately.  Sometimes it's just slow to load, other times I will get a "server not responding" message. Other sites are okay so I don't think the problem is at my end.

For about on hour every day around the time the site goes offline, it's painfully slow on all browsers. After it's shut down for it's normal fifteen - twenty minutes, it it's on and off slow for a while and then seems fine.

I notice it seems to be around the same time every morning, between 4 and 5.  I have just stopped wondering about it and think that is just the way it is, go do something else, and try again later.
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

If it happens in the middle of the night, 3am EST, it's the server database getting backed up.    If it happens  in the early morning, about 8:30 am EST, it's just that everyone is waking up, getting to work, firing up their computers and logging into Ehell all at the same time.

Ah that makes sense :).  I'm on about 7AM CST.

Has anyone noticed a problem in the past week/10 days?  We had a problem Monday the 5th but I haven't noticed any major slowdowns since then.

Every single morning between 6:30 and 7:30 this happens to me.  It's almost gotten to the point where I consider skipping Ehell during the morning hours because it's so frustrating.  And that makes me sad. :( 

I figure it's just a lot of traffic at that time of day, causing the site to freeze up and/or slow down.  There are a LOT of people accessing this site, and I bet the mornings are the busiest.

Yes, daily. The site will not load at all for anything between half an hour to an hour around 1pm GMT and will also be very slow between 7-8am GMT.

Still slow loading? Re: Slow loading

With the migration to a new data center and band new server, the hope is that the slow down we see each morning around 8:30 AM EST-ish (and really noticeably on Monday mornings) is a thing of the past.   

Let me know if this is still a problem.

It seemed to be fine yesterday after the chnage took place, but his morning I got on but then the site wasn't responding.  This was about 9:25am PST and I was just able to get on and it is now 9:40am.  It seems the same problems as before this most current (yesterday) change.

Mine was at 11:30 CDT, or 12:30 EDT - eastern metropolitan lunch hour.

My provider just attempts for so long the then says 'Cannot connect', which is what happened.

It's only 20 minutes later now and I'm fine.

The problem was back at its usual time today - the site was gone for 40 minutes from 12:55 BST or so until 13:35.

Today and yesterday there was also a clear slowdown in loading time around 7am BST.
