Is it just me or do other people experience 5 minute lagspells, a non functional search function and failed queries?

What can we do about this, there should be some way we can fix these issues!

I've just been doing some spring cleaning of the database, which would have been making it hang fairly often in the last hour.

I've stopped now, is it any better?

Hi

I think the lag involves other internet issues besides AGS.

Generally there is an AGS hang every so often. This may be annoying but expected at times, like during maintenance in which it should be stated on the home page so we all know.

The database must be chocking to death with back issues.

If AGS is no longer supporting older versions of AGS perhaps issues should be on an independent separate database / re-direct site?



I am not dead, I am only sleeping ;)

Sorry for the late reply, I noticed it working a lot better after your post.
Had a small spell of it again yesterday, but today seems to be working pretty well.
Much better than it had for awhile.

Yea, Ags has shitloads of google,bing, every type of crawler bot running on it you can imagine.

The robots.txt should probably be adequately adjusted.

[edit]
Also Im sure there's probably 10+ bots just sitting on the registration page failing to register.

I'm having random lag spikes between page loads.  Sometimes it is only a few seconds, sometimes it is 20-30.

Ya, I'd gladly take some of the serverload on my server if it was possible, but i think everything is pretty much stored in database so, thats out the window..

Okay, necroing another thread.

If you get any (extended or recurring) periods of lag from now on, please post about it here, or send me a PM.  CJ has assured me that the server is more than capable of running the server, so I need to know exactly what problems people are having, and when.

Well I meant more after the fact!  I'm not a student anymore, so I can't really spend all day staring at the forums and IRC, waiting for them to fall over.  Stupid real life :(
