Slow Loading?

Slow Loading? - 12/07/13 08:15 AM

Is anyone experiencing slow or no loading of the site? It took several minutes to upload this page in order to post.

Also, some of the posting icons are missing.

We are having bad weather but other sites are loading okay.

Things are pretty speedy here.

No problems here. Try clearing your Safari cache, but more than likely it's just a hiccup in your route to the server. If you have a phone to try it on try it using your phone data, not your home wireless. If it's okay on the phone then it's something with your internet connection.

Seems to work okay on my phone connection. The second or third time on network connection, it was speedy and then would hang again. I will see if it clears up as it is better as it would not even load yesterday.

The icons are loading now.

If you see slow loading, and you are able to run a traceroute between you and the server, that would be good. Typically, when the reports are not widespread they are often an Internet connectivity issue … not necessarily on your end, but in between where the server is and you.

Also, all the posting icons are there -- so this is a symptom of the slow loading as well.
Thanks!

Took me a few minutes to find the Network Utility in 10.9!

Since I can't see the end of it (it timed out), how about a ping:

ping forums.applecentral.com

from within Terminal.app if you want.

Thanks!

Since it was okay on the phone, to see if it's something with your ISP's DNS servers, in your DNS servers in Network preferences add 8.8.8.8 and 4.2.2.3. Google public DNS, and Level 3 Public DNS.

Maybe your ISP's DNS servers are slow to update changes.

So, the timeouts are the problem -- as that should not be happening. There's something going on with your connection, or in between you and our servers. Changing DNS is a good thing as an attempt, but that wouldn't account for the first ping working, and the rest not -- as it won't ask on each one.

This is either a wait and watch, or complain to your Internet provider.
Thanks!

Thanks. I have noticed it on one other site this evening. I will wait and see if the wacky weather has taken down a server somewhere since I have no other issues.
