[] Timeouts

 [1/1] from: SunandaDH::aol::com at: 18-Jun-2004 6:44

Now we've got a ML again, I'd like to ask for some help in debugging a problem over at A couple of people report that the site is *consistently* unusable for them -- it's just too slow, often to the extent that they get timeouts. Usually the finger gets pointed at the site being we must be spending an age in the CGIs. That *isn't* the problem as far as I can tell. Most CGIs scripts take well under 1 second. You can see the actual time spent in CGI by checking out the numbers towards the bottom of the menu on every page, e.g. this one took an elapsed time of 0.283 seconds: 18-Jun 10:37 UTC [.283] 26.254k Of course, there could be a contention problem (so some requests wait a minute before even starting the CGI). If so, it is puzzling that that victimises specific people. So I'm looking for ideas, please. If you do see long (over 10 second) responses, please also try this static page to help triangulate if we do have a CGI problem (That page is nothing to do with REBOL, just one of Those Things floating around the Internet). Any suggestions, or ideas for lines of enquiry will be most welcome Thanks, Sunanda.
