Slow

Some people are experiencing positively glacial performance from the site. It's an issue with Squarespace, who are investigating.

Things seem a bit snappier now!

Hi Bish

1. Your site is glacial.

2. Reluctant to paste IP address on an open forum

Aug 6, 2014 at 11:09 AM | Unregistered CommenterJoe Public

Those instructions don't seem to work, Your Grace. I can find my IP address okay but the Traceroute instructions just take me to Bing as a search result.

The site has been glacial for about a week. Maybe more.

Aug 6, 2014 at 11:21 AM | Unregistered CommenterGixxerboy

Sorry, not prepared to post that info in a public forum.

Aug 6, 2014 at 11:28 AM | Registered Commenterjohanna

I've got the data but like johanna I'm not keen on giving that information to the world in general. Nor, I respectfully submit, should it be necessary. If squarespace have a problem it should be identifiable and correctable without requiring innocent third parties to reveal their IP addresses.
You always have the option of telling Squarespace where to put their hosting. Wordpress do a pretty good job!
The site is working better at the moment. I thought I'd try the VPN and that seems to have made a difference. Can't see why that should be.

Aug 6, 2014 at 11:40 AM | Registered CommenterMike Jackson

And, the site is still trying post my last comment 15 minutes later. "Transferring data from www.bishop-hill.net"

Other UK sites, and some in Canada, the US and New Zealand, are working fine.

Aug 6, 2014 at 11:41 AM | Registered Commenterjohanna

I'm with johanna on that but I'll email the guy if it helps solve the problem because it's been painfull here at times, but variable.

I do not like to post my IP address. I am not on a domain.
My ISP is: Koninklijke KPN N.V.
I apologize for the fact that columns in my post are not preserved on the website.
Response from Bishop Hill takes minutes. Login does not work at all. This is a stable situation.

Everything's been fine today, until I opened this post. I've been to Climate Audit, Lucia's and I'm now at Judith's in the time it took to login.

Sorry. Not going to post personal information.

I could send a screenshot of my Powershell tracert outputs, byt I do not know how to do that on the website.
These outputs are more illuminating than the traceroutes I provided in my previous post. I used a web tool for this, but they do not show the same amount of hops I get from Windows Powershell tracert.

No hop to prolexic.com in the last tracert. Prolexic protect websites from distributed denial of service attacks. Might this be what is happening? Or something about many of our IP addresses makes it look like a DDoS attack to Prolexic?

I find it inconceivable that Squarespace would need this information from a client's visitors. I think you may have ended up getting the midnight cleaning staff when you contacted their help line. Their log files should tell them where their bottlenecks are. If they don't know how to read their own logs, they should stick to hosting Tupperware parties. It's time for a move. Consider Wordpress.

On a lighter note, and since this is about IT infrastructure it may even be on topic, Hack yourself. An IIRC conversation where an aggressive newbie is lured into attacking his own machine. 127.0.0.1 is known as the loopback address and always points to the local machine...

@Mike Jackson - you're right I didn't notice that (NEVER read the instructions carefully!). Looks like its not needed anyway: the problem appears to be a bit further upstream.

The generic www.squarespace.com site works OK (with all the template demos) and this is on a different IP to BH, leading me to think it is a server=specific problem

All this tracert stuff looks highly suspect to me

And I thought it was Virginmedia...here in W. Mids they have total disruptions per 2 to 3 days for 3 hrs (7am thru 11am), for last 6 weeks. Help from India....no chance!

Not prepared to post IP etc in public forum but for what it is worth my ISP is Telus in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and glacial is a good description

The problem seems to have gone away for the moment so I can't post anything useful.

I have a BT 40Mb internet connection. Click on Met Office or Amazon and the page comes up instantly (less than one second). Bishophill home page takes 30 seconds to load. Clicking to see comments takes a further 34 seconds. I offer this non technical observation as a measure of "glacial"!

Aug 6, 2014 at 5:30 PM | Unregistered CommenterAnthony Hanwell

Interesting that while I've got this page up the little green wheel is still quietly going round apparently still loading data from twitter.
Everything else on the page finished loading about five minutes ago!
There's a message there somewhere โ€” and not just in 140 characters!

Chris Long posted a nice tip - page 2 of the Discussion thread - on using FF 'developer tools'.

In my case it seems the images in the right panel are "corrupt or truncated"

Still slow at 15.30 hours mountain time. Given that you have visitors from around the world, all seemingly seeing the same very slow load, does not that suggest that the issue rests within the squarespace world itself and not the route taken to reach their servers?

Response of BH blog in my case in Australia. Glacial for the last 2 weeks. Have the impression that mouse actions while waiting the typical half minute each time for a new window to open, can speed progress. Like opening another address while waiting for BH. Once BH opens to the stage of showing reader comments, pace returns to normal. So the prob seems to be in navigation by the system to finally arrive at the correct IP.
(Can do a trace later if that would help. Need to be sitting at my PC when free, not tablet.)

Andrew, the blog is pretty much unusable on my mobile devices Galaxy S4, iPad and now my PC. Example it's taken about 60 secs to load this page.

Don't put up with this trace route bull**** from Sqaurespace. If the problems are across the board it's nothing to do with the users.

If they can't sort it quick, change hosting.

I have drastically reduced my visits to BishopHill as it's unusable at the current performance levels. This is a SERIOUS problem for you.

When I re-booted my BT Hub, (to obtain a new IP address because I had shown the problematic IP address), my access has been as I would expect.

If anyone has the glacial-effect, and has a BT connection that is not a business type (they seem to have static IP's) then at some point try re-booting the Hub, (thus obtaining a different IP address), and see how that goes.

Earlier today when I posted my (then) IP address I was 'glacial', after posting I rebooted to get another IP address and things went swimmingly, from my point of view.

Maybe 'stay-dynamic' is the way to go?

Aug 6, 2014 at 11:22 PM | Unregistered Commenterunknownknowns

How many people are NOT having a problem and is there a commonality amongst us?

Try loading this image

http://bishophill.squarespace.com/picture/htdslide.png?pictureId=19181106

Once it starts loading click to stop it.

Do you get a "because it contains errors" message?

Aug 7, 2014 at 12:55 AM | Unregistered Commenterclipe

Yes but it happens with any image you stop mid load

Aug 7, 2014 at 1:03 AM | Unregistered CommenterTinyCO2

"Yes but it happens with any image you stop mid load"

In what universe?

Aug 7, 2014 at 2:41 AM | Unregistered Commenterclipe

I put my technical architect hat on for a moment and took a slightly different approach, as I'm used to tech support asking for (possibly pointless) trace routes. ;-)

If you use Chrome and enable the Developer toolbar, there's a network tab where you can see the load times for each individual page asset when (re)loading a Bishop Hill page. From what I can see, the actual page loads pretty quickly, but any asset in /universal/scripts seems to be taking tens of seconds to load.

Given the directory name (universal), are those common scripts provided by Squarespace? If so, is there a problem with their hosting platform? If those scripts are cross-mounted using SMB, for example, then the problem might be between the web server and the file server.

Hope this helps! :-)

Sounds interesting to me - I'll point it out to Squarespace.

Many thanks

Many years experience in IT Support showed me that at least 90% of problems are caused by changes.
When was the first problem noticed/reported? What changes, hardware or software, had just been implemented?
