    How can I tell if my site is slow or not? What sites do you all use?

    I am on a Military computer at work and Xenforo is fast.. When I go to my site. It is slow as molasses, can someone let me know if my site is slow and also, can you let me know what issues, I have?

    Greatly Appreciate it.

    It is just about bearable for me from the UK. Painfully slow at times.

    I'd say it's decently fast, I'm in the UK, the main page on first load seemed to spring up in about 4ish seconds, but other bits were still loading around the 9 second mark

    Forum tab, when clicked, took about 4 seconds in total.

    The main page is rather heavy though, clocking in at 7.2mb, the forum is about 0.7mb

    Good site for testing is - http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

    It's not too bad as well for me. You are showing a lot of people online for the total number of members your stats report

    Online now: 1,806 (members: 1,632, guests: 174)
    Members: 2,487

    For a site that's hosted in the USA and I'm in the UK, I'd say that's about normal for a first load of a site, subsequent loads/refreshes were a lot quicker.

    I.E. Front page now loads in 3-4 seconds, due to caching
    Forum tab now loads in 2-2.5 seconds.

    Something has changed as it has just become usable :) FWIW, my tests were from BT Infinity2, can check tomorrow from Level3/Cogent when I am back at work?

    Who you hosting with Wicked? Knownhost? Is it a dedicated server?

    Strange, for me, it's loading super quick now, I'm navigating through threads/forums pretty darn fast.

    I think that is what is happening to me.. The minute I log on from work its super slow... When I am at home its fine sometimes..

    Ahh, what's the server load like? CPU/Disk IO and Ram?

    What are your hosting specs? Could just be that apache needs tweaking a bit to sort out max server instances and connections. A few tweaks of your mysql config can sometimes help too.
