The PBTech website has felt a lot slower than usual the past few days. The home page isn't too bad, but as you get further in it's slower, and search can be slow.

 

I ran a couple of webpagetest.org test, 1) here 2)  here 3) here. They took absolutely ages to test.

 

1) Monitors page seemed to time out. The page loads I could see were 4-7 seconds but webpagetest seemed to give up after that.

 

2) The home page took 9.4 seconds first view, 6.7 seconds repeat view. That's really quite slow.

 

3) Monitors page retest from a different server showing page loads 7-22 seconds. Yes, 22 seconds.

 

I gave up before the tests all finished as they were super slow. Testing my own website came back with normal sorts of speeds so I think the problem is the PBTech website going super, super slow or timing out.

 

I know some people here work for PBTech. I think you need to work out what's up and try to get things running a bit faster. Page load should really be in the 1-3 second range ideally.

Front page is loading near-instantly for me (on Voyager) but the rest of the pages are slow.

 

Edit: Slow now (21:44).

The webpagetest.org links are pretty good proof that it's somewhat borked. 22 seconds is crazy. They'll be losing sales because of the website problems.

Interesting, speed was quite normal for all pages I tried just now.

This is where PB needs to be using something like Cloudflare to block such things - will help during their sales. Crazy they have not done so yet. Their site goes down often!

but if they added cloudflare it wouldn't be fair for eusers that are on providers that don't peer with cloudflare!

 

 

 

gosh murfy think of the people!

 

 

 

PB has been pretty sluggish for me lately too though.
