  • 3.6.2 Running Slow for you?

    Just upgraded to 3.6.2 from 3.5.something.Everything appears to be working perfect. No issues during upgrade. All templates are 3.6.2 compliant and those that weren't were reverted to be compliant.I have a dedicated server, and all its stats are showing its running just fine without any issues or drag.Without that said, myself and various members from various different locations around the world have been commenting on how the site seems to be running slower than the day before I did the upgrade.Anyone else experience anything similar with their 3.6.2 ? Or anyone have any ideas as to what my giving this illusion to myself and my members?

    You can try disabling some features to help load. Some of the more intensive features include database read marking, users viewing this forum / thread, currently active users, searching, mail queue, queued view counter updates, plugins, etc.

    If you continue to have slowness problems then I recommend you post in the Server Configuration forum. Post the info requested in this thread and they will be able to make recommendations.

          I am noticing alot of slowness with 3.6.2 , I just upgraded from 3.5.1.

          This is a very large forum and with 3.5.1 and 700 users online my load average would stay around 1.1.

          With 3.6.2 my load average has been hitting 6 - 10 several times a day. The only new option I have enabled in 3.6.2 is reputation and infractions.

            I am having the exact same issue. After we upgraded to 3.6.0 from 3.0.x and still now that I have 3.6.2. AdminCP is also slow loading with 3.6.2. This was almost immediately noticed after the upgrade mainly with IE. I have looked at the server load and it is normal.

            - I have a 5 Mbps ADSL connection and it takes a while to load forumhome page.
            - The "slowness" occur in mainly with Internet Explorer 6.x on XP Pro on forum loading. Ref.: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=203452
            - 120000 posts, 15000 threads, 10-15 users max online.

            - all templates are reverted.
            - no hacks except Vbstats.
            - Vbstats: The processing time and average load are ok.

                Something I found after upgrading onto the 3.6 branch was that I needed to repair and optimize the database tables after doing so, particularly the POST and THREAD tables. I did have problems with some slowness until I did this. I have always found it happens like this on a major upgrade.

                If your board is not too large you can do this in the AdminCP. If it's bigger then the POST table will probably time out, so you would need to do it using SSH, which is what I did.

                  Same problem here. Everything was running find on 3.5.4. Upgraded to 3.6.2 and immediately myself and many users noticed the slowdown. No hacks, all templates reverted. Looking forward to some good suggestions on how to resolve this.

                    Try running Repair/Optimize in the Admin CP to see if this helps:

                    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Repair/Optimize Tables -> Check All -> Continue

                      I repaired and optimized mine quite a bit and it's still the same speed. Server load averages are steadly around 2.00 and up.

                      Now one thing I found funny, was when I did a search with over 200+ results. It says the search took around .15 seconds.. Not sure about any of that, but hopefully it will help with the slowness issue.

                        I'm confused by this. It's not really possible to optimize and repair "quite a bit", unless you mean you only did some of the tables.

                        Do them all, it may help your speed issues.

                          Do any of you guys have "Check Thread Subscription" enabled in admincp?

                          I was getting high server load in 3.6.2.

                          So far after disablingit it, it has been better, I will have to give it a day or so before I know for sure.

                            I ran it twice yesterday and twice today. I like to run it twice just to make sure the first time didnt miss anything. To me that's considered "quite a bit"


                            *edit*
                            Just for reference here is my quick stats:
                            PHP 4.4.2
                            Apache: 1.3.36
                            MySQL version: 4.1.21-standard
