I got an IP to the same data center over another network. I have run trace route from down here and it seems to be quite a bit faster (much less hops).

If would be great if you all could help me test this other route optimized network vs the one we are on now. In order to do this you will need to run Trace Route.


I was given an IP on another network to check out. I have tested it a handful of time from down here in S America and also from a desktop that I can remote into in Dallas. Both of the tracer routes showed much better results for me at this time. It would be very much appreciated if you could run tracert a few time over the next few days for both of the following and let me know your results.

I will need info on our current network which you can get by running this:

tracert early-retirement.org

and then the trace route on one of the proposed new networks:

tracert 208.78.43.1

I VERY much appreciate your feedback. Also, please note I am going to work at getting the JavaScript (which makes up 3/4 of the page load) optimized this week and loading at the end of the page. I do sympathize with you all and please rest assured it is not my intent to run anyone off with slow page loads. It's been a crazy two months for me I'll keep pressing forward getting things as fast as possible. Thanks for you patience during all this.

Good grief, it's nearly half the time-- 633 vs 1175.
I'll run some more over the next few days.

Thanks, I got a PM and the speed was nearly the same from that member. I think a lot is going to depend on the peering agreements between the internet backbone providers. Some people are seeing the current server just fine but then others are hitting horrible traffic jams. I know the answer is going to be to switch to the route optimized network but the more data you all can provide in the days to come the better it will help me understand this issue.

Also, please post the amount of hops needed to reach the destination. The route optimized network should be significantly less in most situations.

BMJ, I had a couple people check the Javascript and it was ok for them. Although I am going to get more info this week about compressing the JavaScript files and loading them at the end of the page rendering they should be caching on nearly all browsers. The headers being sent are not telling the browser to refresh those files.

Nords, just out of curiosity do you have Firefox installed? I wonder if for some reason the JavaScript (75% of the page load) is not caching for some reason for you and there for trying to download on every page)?

No, just IE. Never bothered with Firefox-- never had a compelling reason to fiddle with it...

I just wanted to let you all know that we will be switching to a route optimized network this weekend. I will post more as soon as the info is available. The server are not running at very high loads but I also plan to get a couple more in place in September.

There was a router failure in the data center today.

We will move to the route optimized network which should remove the network as a possible weakest link. I will post more on the switch to the new network as soon as I get the exact time from the server admins.
