    My thoughts exactly, just because there may be issues that need worked out, there is certainly no reason to make a claim the techs do not know what they are doing....

    Yes I admit I was defending them, as I have personally dealt with Alan and his team on issues and they DO IN FACT know what they are doing.

    As for the issues people are experiencing, sticking to the facts of this issue itself may help the techs diagnose what is happening and lead to a solution.

    FWIW I very very rarely have trouble loading and do not get error messages. I usually check in daily if that helps.

    Im not sure...but gpwa run on two NS

    nombre.infotechsys.com and
    ns.infotechsys.com

    these name servers are not parent,and can be generate a incorrect lookup.

    regards

    I performed a dns report and I see nothing out of line for the GPWA name servers, and they are authoritative for the name records.

    You are correct that the parent servers are not providing glue, but it is an acceptable configuration (as per RFC), it just causes additional lookups. See the note (the bolding is mine)

    Parent zone does not provide glue for nameservers, which will cause delays in resolving your domain name. The following nameserver addresses were not provided by the parent 'glue' and had to be looked up individually. This is perfectly acceptable behavior per the RFCs. This will usually occur if your DNS servers are not in the same TLD as your domain (for example, a DNS server of "ns1.example.org" for the domain "example.com"). In this case, you can speed up the connections slightly by having NS records that are in the same TLD as your domain.
    Whether this might lead to the issues we have seen I am not sure, I guess it is possible if the network was under additional load during those time frames and the additional dns lookups were being delayed, but in most cases the additional dns lookups are not likely to fail since dns packets are abot the lightest loads servers usually handle.

    Just noticed a significant slowdown / timeout situation of GPWA forum about 10 minutes - 10-20 minutes ago.
    Unable to get much of anything working ... all other sites seemed fine.

    Thanks Paul,

    When I see it, it usually only lasts a little while so it does seem to network or backbone related.

    Broadcast storm on a switch or router maybe? Most of the ones I have seen of those are temporary unless a nic is failing and if so they usually increase in frequency.

    I saw a similar situation on one of my public switches a while back, it ended up being a case of a few gig cards trying to negotiate at gigabit on a 100 meg switch. The crc mismatch errors in the switch log gave it away.

    I did not see the issue today, but putting the time with it helps, thanks.

    Certainly no pattern seems to be emerging except that it seems to be database related.

    I personally think it is directly related to the forum database and not their databases as a whole, the last 2 times I saw this casinocity and all their pages and content links etc that come from a database seemed to load fine while forum pages were slow.

    Thanks for reporting, I will drop Alan another email.

    Cloudflare is NOT the best options and this is NOT a bandwith issue, at least not an incoming bandwith issue.

    When a company runs racks of servers for their business, they can not just route traffic through some isp on the other side of the world and expect problems to just go away.

    Thanks for the continued reports, I have not talked to Alan yet but maybe Anthony has. I will try and get in touch with him.

    It clearly seems to be related to the forum database somehow.

    Thanks to those who took the time to give us a time frame of the issue you have seen.

    I had not seen any issues lately, even during the times I was seeing them previously between the midnight and 2am time frame...

    A real report with the time you saw the problem takes almost the exact same time as a post to complain....just sayin....

    I saw some slow downs at the forum around dinner time Tuesday but I assumed it was my connection and it cleared up about 5 minutes later.

    But at 3:40 am Eastern Time Wednesday morning the slow down is more than noticeable as it took about a minute and a half for this page to load.

    I am stil waiting for another thread to load in another tab.

    Anyone else?

    Imagine that it cleared up a few minutes after I posted this....maybe it was my connection....
