  • PERFORMANCE OF THIS WEB-SERVER

    I know that this is not right forum.
    But I have got a VERY poor performance of this BBS lately.
    This seems to be during "Normal hours" in US
    I have an ISDN 2ch (128 kb line) and have loadtime for
    single URL-s in the interval 20-60 seconds
    Is there a "performance-issue" with PowerBasic Web-server?

    I'm on cable, but it has slowed down, and at work we have several T3's, and even there it's slow...

      It's the same here, it takes about 3-4 minutes to get to this forum.
      I've been trying for ages and it only seems to happen on this site!

      Whats going on?

        I have also not very bad connection with Internet and enough often have the same problems with delays.
        From the other side, there are moments, when it works like it should be.
        It seems to me that the server is based on enough simple hardware platform and simply is not able to process many requests.

          It usually works OK for me. But that might be because I'm in Europe and it is mostly accessed from the US (at other times)

            Just to provide some more info for the people at PB. I am in Texas. The initial connection speed is ok. It is not one of the fastest but it is ok. After I am connected, the site operates fine.

            I have no complaints about speed.

            Just FYI for PB.

              It's not the 'fastest' web site, but it's OK.

              I connect through gte, mostly early AM or early evening (US Central Time).

              I have more problems with GTE: In the the evening, the line may be busy or the response can be slow. But the PB site itself seems OK.

                Just in case PB folks need more info...

                Everything is OK here in "down under". In fact if anything it appears to work a little faster these days!

                I connect through a LAN at work, which is connected to the Net by a 128K ISDN link. At home it is a 56K dial-up link.

                Both seem OK.

                  I'm in Hawaii and have never seen any performance issues with this BBS.
                  And the crowd that hangs out here are very helpful!

                  My expectations on performance may be clouded by the fact that I'm using
                  a 33 kbs modem. Still I think it is great. Never have I seen a single
                  instance of more than a few seconds response time.

                    I have had "severe" problems with the PB site for the last two days.

                    Access is nearly impossible !

                    I am located in Virginia USA.

                    Out of 10 tries, I may get one page to display after 5 minutes. Most times, my web browser just sits there and does nothing indefinitely.

                    My impression is that it may be a "backBone" problem and not a PB server problem. If the Pb sites server were at fault, "everybody" would be experiencing problems.

                    Now, if an Internet Backbone were down somewhere (or had poor transmission) certain areas (probably in the US) would experience problems.

                    Most IPs are connected to multiple Backbones, so one can be out while the others work.

                    I live in a Rural area and the local Backbone is handle by Sprint and it has a bad reputation of being unreliable. I don't know whow many times my IP told me a Sprint router went down.

                    Also, the East cost just experienced a big snow storm, which may mean "heavy" Internet traffic on East cost backbones (everbody is snowed in).

                      The PowerBASIC web server is connected to the net through SprintLink in Mountain View, California. One of their routers crashed on Friday and wasn't replaced until Monday. It primarily effected users in the U.S. (most international requests go through a seperate router). It's been fixed by Sprint.

                      Apparently it affected several thousand web sites in the northern California area.

                        Thanks for your replies.
                        I asked this question, because there have been a substancial degradation
                        in responsetime (2 months.. maybe more)
                        Right NOW loading this topic took 69 sekonds.
                        From the time i clicked the title in Windows forum till that page
                        DISSAPEARED took 28 seconds.
                        another 10 secs to display the Powerbasic PeerSupportForums-image
                        and another 31 secs to finish the page.
                        That is slow.
                        At the same time Winfile.com loaded instantly.
                        I have nagged my ISP about this but what we can see it is a PB-issue
                        I am just saying that it is positive for PB to have that many visitors,
                        and that I have to find another timeframe to access this BBS.
                        I cant say that this is a server-problem as I have no idea at all how my
                        requsts are routed to the server.
                        All I can say is: At times it is slow loading pages from Powerbasic.com.

                        Added later:
                        On the other hand it took only 2 secs to post my replay an get the
                        wait-for-automatic-forward page to appear.
                        Strange...

                          I have got 3 internet accounts with different companies, Freeserve and Eurobell which are based in the UK, and AOL which (i think) the backbone\server is based in the US.

                          Only the AOL account works as normal, all the other ISPs have a really really slow connection speed with the PowerBasic web site.

                          Yet on one (UK based) account I can achieve a download speed of 7.5kb/sec on a v90/56k modem, from any other website.

                          At the moment I am using the AOL account, its the only way I can post a message on this site within 2 minutes.

                            I too use AOL, and have never had a problem with this site. It loads as quickly for me as any other site. I'm in Tempe Arizona.

                              For All Its Worth and whatever it means.
                              I monitored this BBS yesterday january 31st
                              From 12 AM to aprox. 06 PM local BBS-time
                              this BBS were more or less impossible to contact.
                              that is loading a single page took more than 60 secs.
                              After 06 PM it worked like a charm.

                                As a comparisement. Like Fred, I'm also from Sweden, but I have no problems
                                with the speed on this site, other than what's usual for US connections
                                during daytime. Using a well-oiled old 28.8 kbps modem, all pages usually
                                are fully loaded and shown in just a couple of seconds. Confusing, eh?

                                  Yes, another Swede!, and as Borje I don't have any access problems either. Neither from work (using 10Mb direct connection to our ISP) nor from home (using 128Kb ISDN to our ISP).

                                        Well, thinks are back to normal for me now.

                                        For the last two or three days, I could not even display a single web page on the PB site. I had a strongly feeling that it had nothing to do with the PB web site itself.

                                        Whether is was a bad "router" somewhere in some Internet Backbone or whether is was just the heavy Internet traffic on the East coast (we had some snow storms and everybody is home and has nothing better to do than go online) I do not know.

                                        I am pretty confident this was not a PB web site problem, but an Internet problem. That would explain why some had no problem with accessing the web site and some did.
