    Exclamation Forum downtime May-3 6AM CDT

    I'll be taking the Forum down for (probably) less than an hour to look into the performance issues we've heard about. I'll be doing this at about 6AM CDT (-5 GMT) tomorrow morning. Hopefully, I'll find what's wrong, but preliminary investigation didn't turn up anything obvious.

    Well, I didn't find any glaring problems, but did tune some memory parameters in the database.

    If you're still experiencing slowness posting, add a note to this thread as close to the time you had the problem as possible. It'll be easier to diagnose if most issues are happening during specific time ranges.

    Just had a slow posting, 12:45 EDT, to this thread. Took 30+ seconds more or less to make the posting.

    I think I've traced the performance problem to an intermittent network issue with our server's host. I've reported it, but don't have an ETA.
