Hey everyone,

How is the performance of this website for you? Fast? Slow? What geographic location are you accessing the site from? What issues do you face when browsing/posting?

Let me know how you'd rate the performance of vpsBoard so we can start making improvements where needed.

So far so Good. I'm visiting from South Dakota, USA. Haven't had a single Problem. Site Loads perfectly fine!

Performance is decent but every once in a while the network blips.  

Comcast is my ISP so it goes from Comcast (Central PA) -> Comcast (NYC) (111 8th Ave) -> nLayer (East Coast US) -> CloudFlare (UK)

I am tunneling via SSH to a box in  United States Michigan Eastlake From Australia, it's zippy for me.

So...  Las Vegas -> Eastlake, Michigan -> Australia is zippy?

Well damn then.  I guess everything's done boys.  Network's fine.  We're good here.

What in the hell is that sh!t routing?  CloudFlare has NYC nodes and other far closer than UK.   You need to get them to clean that up.

I am connecting via SSH in New Jersey.   I see blips and issues all the time.  Part of that, < 10% of the time is a DNS bug/issue with my setup.

I'd say lately the site is better behaved and more consistent.

I get decent load speeds, but I get frequent page drops where VPSBoard just won't load for about a minute and then it will connect again.

I'm in Los Angeles, Ca. My ISP is Verizon.

Not sure if sarcasm. 

Oh we've been trying to get networking taken care of because several people have been having issues.  Because it seems like we're fine to Australia, I was jokingly stating that we accomplished our job.  I mean my VM container in Australia takes a while to connect to (directly at least), so yeah...  It was just a joke haha.  


Here in Lincoln, Nebraska on Time Warner Cable things are usually fine. Every once in a while pages will take a little while to load (primarily when I first go to the home page after a few hours of being offline).

I have been noticing is that sometimes the user profile images don't show up in threads. Also sometimes posting replies will take a few minutes.

Pages take long enough to load that I have time to flip to another tab and back. Totally usable though.

EDIT: Should have said from Australia...

I am not totally sure how SSH Tunnels work but I would assume the network is fine to the box not to me, I always thought it was.


Correct me if I am wrong, I thought it was the same as using a VPN but not as secure?

Speed on Tunnel

40 requests ❘ 23.4 KB transferred ❘ 5.00 s (onload: 4.65 s, DOMContentLoaded: 3.87 s)

Apart from that with a direct connection, it's a bit faster..

40 requests ❘ 30.0 KB transferred ❘ 1.92 s (onload: 1.49 s, DOMContentLoaded: 1.39 s)
