      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

Real–world HTTP/2

1 post in this topic



After building confidence in our new infrastructure, we began transitioning our static assets to HTTP/2. Surprisingly, some sections of our platform felt noticeably slower. This post will cover our investigation into the performance regressions we experienced by adopting HTTP/2.

Our story isn’t the panacea of web performance typically associated with HTTP/2.






For a typical image rich, latency–bound page using a high–speed, low–latency connection, visual completion was achieved 5% faster on average.

For an extremely image–heavy, bandwidth–bound page using the same connection, visual completion was achieved 5–10% slower on average.

On a high–latency, low–speed connection we saw significant delays for page to reach visual completion.




"When using HTTP/2, our bandwidth-bound pages take significantly longer to reach visual completion despite loading faster"




“With HTTP/2 the browser relies on the server to deliver the response data in an optimal way.

It’s not just the number of bytes, or requests per second, but the order in which bytes are delivered. Test your HTTP/2 server very carefully”

      Heads up guys first Nginx HTTP/2 alpha patch is here https://www.nginx.com/blog/early-alpha-patch-http2/
      Already updated Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 with this patch for Nginx HTTP/2. Note it removes SPDY module support so it's either HTTP/2 or SPDY not both :)
