    March 2 server

    If I am not logged in when I go to JPR or hit the HOME button, It is super fast bring up the page.

     

    However. If I am logged into JPR, it is slow (normal for me) as ever bringing up the page.

     

    Something to do with authentication.

    1. It should be at least a little faster when logged in

    compared to before.

    We’ll continue tweaking.

    Thanks for the feedback.

      2. It is about the same as before when logged in, but

      I think faster than DU on loading pages when not logged in. I think before it was slow both ways.

        5. What kind of a system are you surfing from?

        What geographical location?

        Front page loads in about 1-2 seconds for me. I don’t doubt that you’re seeing slowness, just trying to figger it out.

          6. In Arkansas, and go through CloudFlare in Dallas

          MacBook Pro on Safari with 25MB internet.

           

          To me it seems that when the system is authenticating ME that is what slows me down. If I do not log in the it screams.

          If I am not logged in and click to my link, it pops up instantly. I click my box to log in and the system will take about 20 seconds to authenticate.

      3. JPR has consistently been slowest to load for me.

      About 3-5 seconds is normal for me. All other sites load much faster, some almost instantly (like DU – they must have one heck of a server)

      I can’t log in to DU anymore, being a non-welcome person there – so the login doesn’t affect my speeds. I am permanently logged in to JPR, although the system kicks me out now and then . . . 

      Even news sites with lots of images to load connect faster than JPR ever does . . . .

      ‘jus sayin’ 

      I’m not on the web that much anymore for the extra few seconds of connecting to really bother me . .

      :hi:

          8. Does it matter really?

          Everything else loads faster – news sites from China, Iran, Iraq, Russia, USA Canada etc, etc – other boards, amazon etc. . . .  – ALL load faster than JPR for me.

          Why would my system and geographic location be specific to the performance of JPR?

          Anyhoo – in Northern Ontario running Win 7 on a Dell Inspiron 15R – provider is Bell Mobility (“the stick”).

          JPR is also the slowest site to load on my Dell Latitude D600.

            9. Because…

            There are three potential causes for slowness:

            1. We’re serving the pages too slowly,
            2. We’re serving crappy HTML/Javascript that causes your browser to be slow,
            3. Our server is geographically far enough from you, so latency is a problem

            I don’t think that 1. is the problem anymore – pages load for me in 1-2 seconds (how long do they take for you).

            2. could be a function of which browser/os you’re using – knowing this would help us to debug it

            3. may sound weird, but many other sites use multiple servers around the world to overcome the latency issue – we do this to some extent using a service, but perhaps should be smarter about it.

    7. Still hesitant

    to load, it starts, pauses, then fills in, slower than other sites. Seems faster going from topic to topic as that used to produce the same hesitancy.  On an iPad Pro, home wifi. Thanks for improvements!

    10. I am in LA and go through Cloudflare.

    It takes about half as long overall, i.e, 3-4 secs instead of 7-8.

    It takes a long time “connecting” and then it’s about 3-4 secs, that’s logged in.

    Logged out it seems a bit slower, has to download everything again, I think.

    I’ll clear my browser cache later and see how that looks. That can have a big effect

    I run vanilla Ubuntu 14.04, all supported software. Not doing anything funny.

    On the side, I think slowing people down is not a bad idea, too many people post without thinking.

    Bye.

    11. I don't see much difference once it connects,

    If anything, logged in is faster, caching doen’t seem relevant. It’s definitely a better response time.

    Connection time, passing the credentials back & forth seems to take3-5secs, then 1-2 more logged in, 3 or 4 logged out or private browsing.

    YMMV.
