In Topic: Jasmine - Slow response time, high CPU

Thanks Mike!  It's reassuring to know the problem has been resolved (even though I'm now happily zipping along on another server). :)


In Topic: Jasmine - Slow response time, high CPU

I too have noticed slow response times on Jasmine. It seems to vary quite a bit. I also have checked the site with GTmetrix, Pingdom, etc. Plus I have looked at the Net panel in Firebug. The delay in loading (when there is one) is "Waiting for response from server" or "Time to first byte."

Sometimes the response is just fine, but other times it can take as long as 4 to 6 seconds or more for a page to load. I set up a very modest static HTML page for testing and saved the PDF from GTmetrix. It took 6.8 seconds for the page to load a total of 6.3 KB (html, css, js). That was the slowest. But three out of four times that I checked my homepage that day (Oct 28), GTmetrix reported it as slow loading.

Slow loading is not a rare occurrence. It is becoming more and more the norm it seems. I am considering switching to a premium hosting plan if necessary, but hopefully something else can be done to remedy the problem.


In Topic: Echo Server - Processor Upgrade on/after September 11, 2014

Are there any upgrades planned for other servers?  I'm on Jasmine and it's slower than it used to be.

Ultimate htaccess Blacklist | Perishable Press

 

is that any good list ?

 

Also i see a small performance drop after that. Maybe it is my eyes only.

 

I just use a short list myself, based on who I've seen causing a problem on my site. (Or causing a problem at my previous host, that is, due to CloudLinux settings evidently.)

I use in my .htaccess the following and works great. Saves a LOT of junk traffic from bots. Also if you block those with .htaccess their hits do not count as traffic .....

Problem with that approach is Litespeed doesn't support SetEnv directives. (I had an old ticket on that issue with a link provided to doc's, but evidently old tickets aren't kept around here.) I use RewriteRules to achieve the same result.
