in reply to Site too slow

Judging by this and other threads the main problem for most people seems to be the cpan nodelet. I was having connection problems, including a lot of timeouts, so I turned off the cpan nodelet and everything sped up for a bit. When my connection times started getting bad again, I just turned off everything but the chatterbox and other users, and it's been working fine since then.

So what you probably want to do is try turning the cpan nodelet off, if that doesn't work just turn all of your nodelets off and progressively add them back again and figure out what's the problem.

Also I'm sure a visit to the Offering Plate wouldn't hurt the site's times either :)

    Well, I've disabled the CPAN nodelet as you and elusion have suggested, and that has definitely improved things, though the problem persists. About every ten minutes, I have to wait a minute or two before pages start loading again. I'll try systematically removing other nodelets to see if I can narrow down the problem.

    Regarding your suggestion of visiting the offering plate, I would venture that this is more of a task for pmdev than anything else. I doubt that throwing extra hardware or bandwidth at this problem will resolve it.
