Upload Pages Takes Hours To Built Up, Bug?

Thu Aug 22, 2002 4:42 am

More or less a question for Johan and the a.net team!

I don't know if this just me or if others have the same problem.

I am exaggerating a little here but it can take up to 2 or more minutes before the http://www.airliners.net/addphotos is completly built up.

It does not matter if I am at home (ISDN 125 Kbit/s ) in the office (LAN) or
on connecting via the laptop (64 Kbit/s)

Thanks
Vasco G.

Vasco, it's not just you. I have a 512 kbs line and it takes ages for me too.

Jup here too.....

Scanning and editing takes about the same time to wait for upload page to load

I agree, the actual upload page takes an eternally long time.

Hi!
I guess the time from 5.pm. European time till about 5 a.m. european time is the worst to upload pictures. Because most of the Americans are then online.

Its the same with the screening pages. They go pretty fast in the morning but in the late afternoon and in the evening the screening pages also take aaaaaaages to load.

The whole site is at molasses speed. I had written it off to increased traffic and server overload. I assume the only fix is a server upgrade.

I don't think that the American people is the cause of it.
It's always that slow in my opinion and by the way isn't it more European people uploading to this site than Americans?
It feels like there is more photos from the airports in Europe than from America at least of those photos that have been accepted rather recently.

Same here,

I have been experincing this problem since March. I made a post in refrence to this problem back then but no one responded. My problem however goes one step further, I keep getting dis-connected. Though I hate to say it, I am glad that some of you are having this problem as well, it means that there may be an incentive to fix whatever bug is hampering the uploads.

Think about it like this... even if the server was fast, the coding for the upload page includes all of the drop down menus and all of the options (every country/state/airport, every manufacturer/model type/airline code, every airline...) Those menues are made from thousands of lines of coding, so just for a computer to read them all would take a long time, regardless of server speed.

The upload page takes a while, but everything else runs perfectly for me, at any time of the day.

The page takes minutes to load, I see no difference between a 56K line, 1 1MB line and a 2MB line.
Given the amount of data that has to go over the line this is no surprise, so it has to be the script generating it.

Jeremy, your reasoning is at fault here.
The dropdowns shouldn't take more than a fraction of a second to generate, unless the database queries required and the database itself are extremely expensive and poorly performing.
The database being (probably) the same one the rest of the site is running on, that's unlikely to be the cause.
I've written many dynamic websites that are more complex than that page, performance was never an issue (if it took more than a few seconds, we'd go looking for improvements).
Even if the page is expensive to generate (in database operations/time), there are ways to improve the results such as caching the data so you don't do the database calls every time it loads (the data in this case doesn't change much, if you regenerate the page on the server every 24 hours and just show the cached page the rest of the time it would be more than sufficient).

Once loaded it works well (the upload itself is also relatively slow, but that is probably network related outside of the server) but the page generation needs some carefull tuning, even a factor 2 improvement would shave minutes of the loading time and I think a factor 10 might be possible.

Jwenting,

I think you should get in contact with Johan about the options and possibilities to improve the performances of the upload page. Your constructive suggestions could be welcome!

If this site were programmed in an environment I know I would do so Ad, believe me.
