Our site is slow today

Upgrading perhaps?

    It seems fine to me.
  • Our site and other vanilla sites seem to be slow from time to time, and once in a while we get a BONK message...

    Hi Banker, sorry to hear you're having connection trouble. So, here's the issue. We serve thousands of sites and millions of pageviews on any given day. If only one of them reports a problem like that, we have to assume the issue is with their Internet connection - that sort of thing happens all the time.

    To investigate this further we'd need a reliable way of reproducing it, like "do A & B and it will do X" or at least multiple people in different locations reporting it as a problem (ongoing, not "1 time last week" or such) so as to rule out a single place's connection peculiarities. If there's only 1 person reporting "it seems slow" there's really nothing we can diagnose.
  • Hi- We are getting the "Bonk" error continually as well, in all browsers on several different computers. http://forums.payvment.com/
  • @Payvment We had a few minutes of downtime today right as you posted here. It should've been restored within 10 minutes from then.
