I noticed that it was slow earlier this morning, thought it was the fact it was just 6-00am
Everyday at 4am I can`t logon.
I presume it does an update or something.
Doesn`t last long so I just logon at 4.10am.
That would make sense , with the time difference I guess .
4-00am where you are is 6 ish over here
Only since we upgraded the speed of our internet. The speed test indicates it is double the speed but the website response shows it lags more than before.
PS. Editing this.
Not only does it lag for 30 seconds after pressing the post reply, it has double posted.
The host has determined a hardware issue.
Since then I logged into the server and noticed it failing database backups, bouncing between having space and having no disk space - which explains the odd behaviour.
Deleted backups which gives the server plenty of room so it should be interesting to see whether this resolves the issue.
As for the downtime each morning correct pretty sure it was about 4AM the database server is stopped to perform a full backup, have had issues previously doing this live.
No biggie I just check email ectect
Just updated it to 3AM instead.
not a major either
This last week has been bad. It's shocking right now ( Tuesday evening )
It's been fine for me pretty much all day today, but the past couple of days weren't very good.
Aha, so DDOS from Kiwis waking up interrogating what’s happening at Commodore mainland during scheduled backups.
Sink a boat, send a message they understand.
Apparently a failed disk is the cause, makes no sense to me but have asked that it be done sooner rather than later.
The site will be taken down tonight (9PM) to correct the hardware issue.
Fingers crossed it resolves the issues.
Thanks for the heads up
Cool. Last few posts have caused duplications which is a pain. Nevermind
This I am hoping is now resolved.
I completed some moderation without any delays so fingers crossed.
Any problems though by all means sing out.
sure seems faster this morning
Seems OK now.
Seems to be working normally again!
Phew very much relieved to say the least!
Haven’t removed any duplicate threads today so a good sign indeed.
Definitely, been a nice quiet day for me
