lqo-thequestionsnetw.netdna-ssl.com Issue


The last few days I've seen LQ links stall for long periods of time while waiting for lqo-thequestionsnetw.netdna-ssl.com to load. (I'm usually in the Slackware forum)

I know that page loads at LQ occasionally stall for 20 - 30 seconds but that behavior doesn't last very long.

The last few days have not been up to the usual LQ performance level. I got so frustrated last night I just closed the LQ window never to return that evening.

What changed this week? Can it be put back the way it was before?

Nothing has changed on our end and I'm not able to reproduce this issue. Is it happening to any other members?

Actually, yes: all pages are taking a very long time to load for me. As above, seems to be the last 2 days iirc, and continuing, which is why I was glad to see this thread ... its not just me


Update for timing
Time seems to vary, but up to 1m 25s timing the page renews to get back and add this edit.

I've been having the same problem for a while (close to a week) now.

Waiting until the connection times out works but takes a "long" time, reloading the page (sometimes multiple times) is a faster work-around.

This isn't specific to one part of the board.

Thanks for the update. Do any of the members being impacted have firebug/yslow/pagespeed/etc installed? This will help pinpoint exactly what is causing the delay. The "waiting for ..." status bar message is notoriously inaccurate.

I've been experiencing the same issue, slow loading pages with "Waiting for lqo-thequestionsnetw.netdna-ssl.com". This started on Tuesday for me regardless of the browser on my desktop PC. I ruled out recent Slackware64-current OS updates when I was able to replicate the slowness using an older Slackware-14.0 VM. Also, after rebooting my smartphone, I get the same slowness on WiFi but not on mobile data. That makes me think it's a DNS issue.

IMHO since the site has made no changes and the issue is sporadic depending on point of access it is highly probable that something is not right with the site's DNS records.

Running Opera, with adblock plus and an add-server list from http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/formats.php

But the extras aren't recent, been using those for a long time.

Tests with firefox result in the same loading issue's (also using adblock plus and the add-server list)

For the members having issues, are you able to load an image directly from the CDN?

I'd also still be interested in firebug/yslow/pagespeed output.

Works on my side. Tried a few times during the last 3 or so hours, no hiccups/slowness.

But you're still experiencing general LQ slowness/hangs?

Haven't experienced too much slowness. The amount of times the slowness occurs has decreased and the loading time of those parts of the page that are effected seems to have shortened noticeably.

I haven't been too active in the last hours, though.

Nope. It took me 5 - 10 minutes to load this thread and send this reply. Still getting the same "Waiting..." indicator on Firefox.
