BibBase is really slow today

Chris Cole 6 years ago updated by Christian Fritz 6 years ago 3
Hi,

I've been testing a new website over the last couple of weeks and BibBase seemed to be the best option, but today - when it went live, of course - I'm finding it's really slow to load (~20 seconds).

This is not acceptable as most visitors won't wait that long.

Is this a problem of capacity or something?

Thanks for pointing this out, Chris. I believe I was able to fix it.

If this is the page in question, then I think it is much faster again: http://www.compbio.dundee.ac.uk/user/ccole/refs.html.

If that's no the one and it is still slow, please point me to your page for testing.

Thanks.

Yes. That's definitely faster.

What was the problem and is it likely to occur again?

Thanks for your quick response.
I just restarted the server and the problem went away. I haven't yet dug deeper into the logs to see what may have caused it. I haven't seen a slow down like this in at least six month. But keeping it under control is not challenging. I might just restart the server automatically once a day, which is somewhat common practice. Another solution for this would be load balancers, which we'll probably put in place soon if bibbase keeps growing at the current pace.
