    Site performance

    With the recent downtime that the site has experienced (yesterday and 2 weeks ago to be exact) I'm contemplating moving hosts. I'm looking for feedback from the members to determine if this change is needed.

    On my end I did notice the site was a bit slow to load for the last couple of weeks, this shouldn't be an issues with only 100/150 people on the site at any given time. Did anyone else experience slow access?

    The server our site is hosted on had a hardware failure, and was down for most of the day yesterday.
    I was told all issues have resolved, but I have my doubts. So I'm going to give it a 2 week "trial" period and see how things go. If need be we will switch hosts in mid June.

    Please give some feedback to this matter so I can make the right decision.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    it did not not work for me at all yesterday.I didn't try it in the evening,(mommadoos),but otherwise, I've had no problems. I think the biggest concern for you will be in the late fall and winter months when people start coming inside.

    I do notice during the day, it seems like once or twice a day almost every day, I am unable to connect to the bench, it will be working fine, then I try to read a thread or post a reply, and it starts loading very slow, then boom! "cannot connect to thebenchtrading.com" I come back 15 minutes later and it's fine, like nothing ever happened. Only on weekday days, evenings and weekends are almost never a problem.

    Thanks for all the input guys. I know of all the past issues, I'm more concerned about going forward from today. If we continue to have these issues I will move to a new host. I just need you to report back here, if you continue to have problems accessing the site.

    Dave - the problems have nothing to do with the site upgrade.

    There hasn't been a "big" outage but we still experience lags. I originally said I would do it after 2 weeks, but I didn't realize it was father's day this weekend.

    I already have 2 new hosting companies in mind, I just need to make a final pick and being the migration. I will post a "heads up" thread in the site news since we will be down for bit while the move takes place. I'll try and give everyone a min. 24 hour notice. I'll also keep everyone updated thru our facebook page.
