Re: [Speed] My French Car Forum is Being Throttled - But Why?

said by Checkerboard :

Acchhh.. I've been frequenting the site autodejavel.fr for six months and never, ever had this problem. And the locals in France tell me the site's as fast as ever. And yes, the Citroen DS is temperamental, but exquisitely comfortable and a real work of art!

And by the way... Newtown, PA? Meet you at the corner of State Street and Washington! Kidding... moved to San Fran in '94, but grew up in Bucks County, Council Rock HS '75...

Now please tell me if I'm wrong here -why would my ATT iPad3 work as usual, but Comcast "throttle back" or otherwise slow down the site?? Thanks!

Comcast isn't throttling this site. It could be due more to routing from the various networks. My first recommendation is to register as a user here so I and others can PM you. The second is to post a traceroute from the ATT network and then immediately (same time of day) post a traceroute from the Comcast network.

I'd hold the French car thing against you except that the DS is pretty neat and I'm wrenching on an old British car tonight with friends, so I really shouldn't cast aspersions on other cars since the Brits haven't historically been known for their reliability.

Hi there - I just registered, thanks for reminding me. And the site worked all day pretty well, as normal. Now, however, the same problems are back --- impossibly slow speed! Thanks again, Peter

Yeah, I had an MG and a Triumph... always an adventure taking those out for a trip! The site, by the way, is acting up again, after running at full speed since the morning!

Sounds like evening congestion. How is your speed on domestic sites? Comcast jumps through lots of hoops to reach internationally hosted sites so congestion along the route is a problem.

It's acting slow for me right now so that is what i suspect.

I would have to agree here. Site is slow loading for me as well (not like it was this morning).

It would have to be evening congestion on our end I'm thinking, as it is what....2 or 3 AM in France (if that is where the site is hosted). Things should be really quite over there at this hour.

By the way, here is a current trace route if that helps with anything.

If your in a high-volume area for Comcast it's likely that you will face congestion.

I tried on my university internet, loaded quickly.

Must be Comcast's worse peering arrangements slowing it down.
