Astrobin running like treacle

hi. anyone else finding that Astrobin is running very slowly? I am getting acceptable downloads of images from other hosts, but any images on Astrobin are taking ages to download - or they are just stopping mid way through. My 4G modem seems to be running at reasonable speed. Whatever is going on, viewing a significant proportion of the astro images on IIS is currently difficult.

Seems OK to me Ray, just had a look at Rodney's "Robins Egg" on Astrobin and it seems like the same speed ( I'm on ADSL).

Cheers
Bill

I just tried it, with mixed results. Getting logged in was normal but then it bogged down when i tried to access my drop down menu to get to my Gallery. It took a minute then took off again. There could be many reasons, and i don't know where the server is located. I find IIS pretty slow now and then as well. In the early hours over night, if Australian based, you can run into maintenance type delays due to backups running etc but generally these systems are very reliable. Given many servers are hosted overseas these days they can have external network and load factors (especially on shared facilities), that are not apparent to us. I am on NBN with usually great performance.

There was a cut reported in the Sea-ME-We 3 cable from Perth to Singapore a couple of days ago, so bandwidth in and out of Australia will be less than usual.

Could also be a DoS attack... Denial of Space pics

FWIW, I'm seeing reasonable performance on Astrobin at present.

Cheers,
Rick.

The 14/12 APOD links to Astrobin. APODs can attract 200k hits a day for a few days, that could slow Astrobin down for a while?.

thanks very much for the feedback on possible causes for a slowdown. Am now in a location where I can connect through ADSL and am getting reasonably good response again. Maybe my normal 4G provider has implemented a new algorithm to manage bandwidth.. Who knows, but all going OK again now, so thanks again for the advice. Regards Ray
