    is it just me or is MASA very slow?
    over the past few days i have noticed that it is taking ages for masa to load.
    or to post a comment..
    i am not having this problem with any other sites?

    is it just me or are other people experiencing the same thing?

    Slow here as well, most of the time I will get a time out message when I want to go to a next page of a thread. It takes so long to load, Internet Explorer stops the site half way through loading... only MASA, all other sites are fine!

    We have been experiencing some very high server loads/spiking recently, I rebooted the server a few hours ago hoping it would help. The load has dropped a bit but still pretty high.

    Please bump this thread whenever you experience a slow down or any problems, I will contact our server provider to investigate as well. Thanks.

    Wow Mekaeel, thanks man, I'll forward that graph to our web server engineer in Amsterdam.

    Does anybody know of any web server monitoring software that I can use to try and see what is causing these slow downs?
