Complaints about the site...

Its about the site well more like your server. It seems to be very unresponsive at times. Most of the time it doesn't load but gives me a nice white background of the browser. Sometimes it takes about a good 5 minutes before the site loads, other times its some of the site loads but then dies in the middle of loading.

I don't think its the DNS but your web server application *being it apache or windows server 2003* that this site is hosted on. I know you've recently moved but it still seems to be having a hardtime getting the data back to the client.

I would request aquariumadvice through google, because google always updates the cache/DNS info with the latest every 12 hours. But even then I'm having a hardtime getting to your site. Theres no 400 series error or 500 series error; It seems to getting something but is not responding too well. I've cleaned out my cookies in both I.E/Firefox, and powered off my whole network, along with a Dns flush and register.
I've ping -t www.aquariumadvice.com came back with an averaging 80 ping but no packet loss.

Even in the day I'm having trouble So what gives?
Is florida too good for you or something? LOL

P.S Could even be your sql database being sluggish seeing that you got some sort of phpbb portal for the homepage.

I have experienced the same issue, only at night though, around 1 am. I am assuming that the new servers time is off by an hour and it's our nightly back up thats causeing the issue. It's not the server, as my personal site and gallery are hosted on the same server and there is no slowdown what so ever. We are looking into it.

Re: Complaints about the site...

Everyones an expert these days. Dont bother yourself with the systems performance as I guarintee it will increase once I stop transfering information and stop working with multi gig archives.

What happens to your desktop when you work with a 2 or 3 gig file? Do things come to a slow down. I bet so.

Well lets see

Currently running:
2x Folding@home Apps.
Running music in background.
Several firefox tabs plus windows.
Moving several video files size about a good 15Gigs over the network from my PVR to my 200gig drive on my system.
Then theres remote desktop running, I'm reorganizing the 3x 250gigs in a raid 5 setup on my fileserver. *Preparing sometime later this year to switch from Windows to linux* Gotta review each file/folder to see what can be dipose of.

Oh yeah and I'm playing+Alt-tabbing between Silent Hunter III and everything else.
So no I'm not slowed down or laggy.

So I would expect the same with a server.

Oh let me bow down to you all mighty computer user.

I am so sorry to have even crossed someone of your talent and knowledge.

While your at it why not zip up some of those movie and music files into multiple file archives and then uncompress them while doing all of the above and oh be sure to satisfy 20+ web requests per second with most requring multiple sql queries to pull together data while at the same time compiling an HTML page via the php processor before sending out to the users browser.

Oh did I mention googlebots been raping us recently? Hm u ever notice 20-30+ guests online. Well thats googlebot and unlike a user that reads posts googlebot just hits link after link after link.

Slowness last night was the result of me moving multiple secondary websites each a gig plus in size to the server while at the same time doing all its normal work and the slow down over night 12pm - now is a result of doing an incremental daily backup and a full weekly backup for the first time on all the domains. Of course now that thats been done the first time each incremental back up from here on out will not be near as intensive.

Oh we where also processing webstats for users.

Oh and lastly while I was dealing with the move last night we got mail bombed. Ever see what happens when you get a couple thousand mail messages hitting your system at the same time? Now remember windblows is not multithreaded in the way a server OS is so if you get thousands of emails they come in one at a time as you download them where as on a server you get a thousand or more messages instantly. ITs like getting 10 phone calls all at once and you must answer all of them right away and carry on a conversaiton with each independant of the others.

And as you have implyed you have multiple systems on your network. Congrads for you. This permits you to off load IO and CPU work on multiple systems where as if it was all going on an a single box you would have so much IO load just from moving large files around everything else would slow down significantly.

Folding at home runs as a low priority process meaning it only takes cpu when they are idle hence not taking up resources. Multiple tabs open in firefox is nothing but using a small amount of memory since pages load and sit idle. music will consume less than 5% cpu on modern systems unless you like the nice graphic stuff that players use for mood.

LOL, I used to be a server admin for a steel mill here, and I dont care what I was doing, anyone who ever owned a PC would feel a need to add their 2 cents, including the janitor. So what do fish tanks and computer systems have in common? Theres always and expert standing by to counterdict and critisize you.

LOL, I don't mean to belittle anyone, but this is too funny. Since I am a computer user, wanting to add my 2 cents, I thought I might add that It all seems to work great. Haven't experianced any slow downs at all. Thanks for all the Hard work Aaron/Kevin.
