Hang Times

Really long lag times when posting, both on IE and Safari. Been this way for a couple days now.

  1. yes! meant to post about it yesterday. actually not quite as bad/long today, but still a noticeable lag loading pages and posting. i'm using FFX 7.0.2 on a Mac.

    1. I was wondering if it was my computer but it has been frustrating.

      1. Yep, I'm seeing long hang times when trying to post as well. Also seeing an outbreak of duplicate postings, likely from folks hitting the post button twice after a long delay.

          Added: tried to post the text above and after 5 minutes, an error message popped up saying something like enter something before responding.

                Traffic's up 20+% in the last week for the annual Thanksgiving rush, might be part of the problem. I hope Engineering will address this before the holiday break, please.

                  i was just thinking about the possibility that this is turkey-related. Engineering has been disturbingly quiet on this...

                    Sorry, just woke up from a turkey induced nap - thanks for the problem descriptions, we will take a look and see if we can identify the problem.

                      So this turns out indeed to be being caused by the spike in traffic. We are investigating solutions and hope to have a fix in place in the near future.
