the forum slows down to a retardedly slow speed. i mean its not even funny. the pages will not load, until you've sat for a good 4 min plus, then all of a sudden you can browse just fine for a minute or two, and then you get hit again.

it started tonight at 11:09pm pacific time

Im hoping a mod can mention this to Goob the next time they see him as a mod is more likely to get a response than a regular member. i decided to make this thread after hearing Hoss mention it, and i mentioned that i noticed it too.

Thanks

Every night at 2:00 am EST it slows down to where it takes like 3 or more minutes to load a page. I goto other sites and they load fast and fine with no problems. I come back here and it takes forever to load. It's usually like that every night for a few hours.


i didnt adjust anything in the quotes lol. i think the forum is broken. by the way, do the forums servers just go belly up at about 11:30 every night? :confused:



here is another one i found in another thread. putting it in here so that there is some more evidence i guess.

I am on pretty much nightly from 12am-3am and it is always slow, I am pretty sure this is either the time Goob is backing up the site and moving it to a secondary drive OR backing up the site and transferring it to another server using some of the bandwidth, my guess would be the first option.

There is probably a more effective backup solution such as something like rsync where it only backs up data that has changed but honestly it has been like 4 months to drive and get him to instate the new mods which takes all of 5 minutes and god knows how long (over a year now?) to send snoopdans shirt regardless of the fact he has probably been to the post office a few dozen times since then.

No way in hell he is going to look into more effective solutions, in addition it is a very low traffic time of the day so he probably does not see it as a real issue.

I have about 20 servers and they run backups weekly so my servers suffer the same fate one day a week while moving backups though not as bad as what we see here it gets pretty slow.

It's basically the site downloading everything that went on that day to its backup servers, so that in 6 months when someone joins, and they perform a search, this thread will come up. It's like a nightly backup so to speak...;) Most sites/forums have this, including banks, credit cards, etc. Although financial sites have it for different reasons, it is essentially the same concept.

It's not the bandwidth it is the server getting a high load from doing the backups.. Think of if you had like 100GB of **** you wanted to winzip into a file, it would take a while and your CPU usage would go through the roof while it was compressing those files until it finished.

It seems like these forums are down about 70% of the time when I try to get on here at night. I can browse for a few minutes then everything just stops for 10-30 minutes, then its fine again.

I'm on the east coast and I notice it most after midnight EST.
