Intermittent slow page loads?
This is one of those intermittent issues that may be hard to investigate and diagnose, but over the last few weeks, I'm running into sluggish periods with the forums where each page will take a minute or so to load. In fact, the pages load so slowly that I can go to other sites and pull up pages there only to return and the page here is still trying to load.
These periods have been happening throughout the day on a daily basis and each one lasts for about 5 minutes, or so. I've been unable to find any specific times that it's happening, but as noted above, when it starts, other websites seem to be operating normally. For that reason, I tend to think that it's not a problem with my ISP, although it could be.
I suppose a good first step in resolving the issue would be to ask if anyone else has been observing these periods of sluggishness?
