I apologise for the extended downtime. Unfortunately we had an issue where a back up caused a disk to be full, which then resulted in us being unable to perform reboot functions due to lack of space. Following lots of coffee, tears and a fair bit of frustration, we’re back online.
made this a banner . It will appear at the top of every page until it is dismissed by the user.
Just unusable nowadays. The amount of times that the loading screen appears is just through the roof.
From the point of login to just posting this message took 5 loading screens and 5 mins. And I am not sure whether it will allow me to go into any of the pages due to the slow loading. (update - able to go into the other pages, shorter loading screens)
Thank the heavens (and Underworld)! The site is really struggling, and has been for a while. I get about half the notifications I should, pages are slow to load, sometimes I can’t Discard a reply no matter how many times I cancel it, the wrong post gets quoted etc. Worst is how slow it is though at loading new pages, it’s no Series X that’s for sure
More CPUs and more RAM. Storage is good for now, but Discourse is hungry for CPU power and with RAM is always - more more more.
I think the main issue are OTs with thousands of posts, and sometimes a lot of members are posting in them in the same time, plus annons are browsing threads too, so count of users in them is high. All of this is fine, but bottlenecks are occuring which impact performance of the forum and that sucks.
