Starting a new topic just to troubleshoot some recent performance issues. I don’t want to automatically increase our server profile because I did that within the last year and I’m not convinced we need more hardware resources.
Are many people getting the “site is under extreme load” message regularly?
Is it happening to people on desktop and on mobile?
Is it occurring during matches or in general use too?
If it occurs during a match does it only occur on that specific thread or is it for the whole forum?
It would be helpful to get responses from a few people in here, even if it’s repeating what someone else has already said. Also, in particular note any times when the server seems particularly slow for you or you get an error message. Can you say when that happened, and what device you were using?
I amended a few things last week which made no difference it seems. I changed some further settings last night - I threw a few more unicorns* at the problem - so we’ll see if that helps. And there are some code changes coming which should help a bit too.
* this is a real thing.
