Why is DIC so slow?

Posted 29 November 2018 - 02:08 AM

I like DIC but the only problem I have with it is it is so slow. And I'm wondering why.
When clicking on links, posting comments it always takes such a long time to load and occasionally timeouts occur.
At first I thought it was just my connection with the website host but I did a website speed check and it basically shows the same thing.

In the results you can see it takes about 12 seconds to load the page. And the test runs 3 times.
I already tried to enable caching but it still takes about 6 - 10 seconds to load.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Unsure, but I contacted Skyhawk about it and he is looking into it.

This is just like the previously reported case in ArtificialSoldier's "Slow loading" thread. I'm seeing the same pattern again where the page assets load quickly from CDN, but the actual call to DIC's page is running in the 7-12 second range.

Maybe because Bitcoin is back up again, somebody is doing some cryptomining on the web servers... :)

Having our server techs kick the server. The issue is we have some processes that our control systems spin up that haven't been terminating and after a few weeks they slow things down. I've had them looking in to it and they've isolated the problem but haven't sorted out why they aren't terminating and the processes are needed to keep things running... funny, the very things we need are slowing the site down every few weeks. Hoping they'll get to the bottom of it this round.

Feels back to snappy cruising speed again.

Thanks for the server kick.
