website slow?

Post by SectorOne » Sun Mar 15, 2015 7:58 am

Started noticing it yesterday, it takes around 2-7 seconds seconds to navigate the forum clicking on various categories.
I´ve got a stream up right now taking some bandwidth but it was the same yesterday evening without a stream.

Any tips i can do to try and solve this? I´m guessing i´m alone in this particular issue since nobody else has reported it.
All other websites i visit are fast and work normally.

Same issue with me. Even when I clicked on "Post reply" it took me a few seconds more than usual. Not that 2-3 seconds make a world of difference, but thought of reporting it after seeing the thread...

Indeed I'm noticing as well.
Page processing is fine, so must be some network issue. I'll investigate.

Well i´m glad i´m not alone. Just clocked it once at 9,5 seconds :D
I´m used to tenths while navigating the forum. Hopefully you´ll discover the problem.

Turns out we were bombed by 162.244.15.142 (probably some clueless bot)
Not sure what it's about, but in the last 24 hours, we had more than 250.000 requests from that single IP.

IP is now blocked, I'll do some DB cleaning, but performance seems ok again ;)

Was there a problem with the server earlier?

I f*cked up some updates. :oops: Sorry!
10 minutes downtime.

Anyway, nginx and php now updated to latest releases.

Ah ok, nice to see it wasn't that serious.
