See multiple reports in this thread. Chrome browser here, when you select a file and hit upload it doesn't do it.

Not working for me in Firefox either, so not a Chrome-specific problem.

Will have to test when I get home. Something happened this morning after Windows Update.

After testing the scripts in our test domain the only thing left was Windows Update installed today. The last uploaded image was just before the server restart time and uploads stopped working since then.

Restarted server, still no go. Uninstalled updates, restarted server and everything is going well now. 

*sigh*

Right... So here is how it goes:

 

  • Update for vbscript vulnerability breaks boundaries checks when uploading multipart objects - such as images
  • Uninstalled update and all working again but need update to make sure not vulnerable
  • Created topic in Microsoft IIS.Net support forum
  • Microsoft confirmed problem, affecting many other Classic ASP sites around the world
  • A hotfix was developed and released
Today:

 

  • Installed vbscript update again, rebooted
  • Installed hotfix, rebooted
  • Tested image upload, all working
Thanks for those who noticed our brief outage a few minutes ago and let me know via SMS and Twitter.

You're meant to post on twitter before you do maintenance, that way we won't bug you! Not that I do twitter, but the error page shows recent tweets.

Note that those seven hours include the three or four hours spent on migrating the VMs to a new HP server, plus a couple of times I stopped the VMs to reorganise storage.

That's pretty high latency, is it not? 
We have issues here when our applications (both web and OS native) are above 300ms, and we aim for sub 15ms on storage.

I realize that's not really a fair comparison, given I work for a large company that sinks a lot of money into it, but quite surprised that the latency is still that high.

I might go have a search to see what the visitor traffic is like (there's probably already a thread). Do you have a per hour break down or per day? Would be interesting to see. 

That up time is pretty good though, given that included migration to the new server. I think I can only really recall one or two occasions where GZ was unavailable when I tried to use it. Otherwise, it's pretty damn good.

That could be entire page load latency with all resources, not latency of a single page. GZ is pretty fast generally.

I ran a web page test against a random thread. The GZ stuff loads quickly, but all the advertising stuff is pretty slow, and some of the asynchronous stuff loads a little slowly. So you can see the page pretty quickly, but to fully load takes more time. The page itself loads in 180ms.
