Error 503
« on: November 19, 2016, 09:36:22 am »
Over the last few days, I've been getting a bunch of these while accessing the forum. When these occur, response time from an inquiry often runs into several minutes. I can fire up another system and do a "ping" command to forestryforum.com and get a response in under .1 second. The time to build a response page takes the forum software somewhere in the neighborhood of .07 seconds. I have a route trace program that shows me the connection route from my isp to forum server, it usually shows up to half a dozen routers in the path. So far can't see anything common to the problem. Looks to me like the bottleneck is somebody beating the daylights out of a router between me and the forum server.  Anybody else seeing this problem ? From where I am, I don't think the problem is the forum server or local to my system..Maybe Jeff has some tools that I don't...

I couldn't connect with the Forum at all for a while ( most of Thurs nite and Fri.). Then I deleted my Forestry Forum cookie and another 'odd' cookie called 'local documents on your computer' and it has worked well since.

I patrol my cookies and have an ad blocker. Only about 20 cookies that are allowed to stay.

I am aware of the situation. Basically they are DOS attacks. When they start, and I see them, I take steps to stop the problem until they come frome another direction and have to do it all over again.
