    2500+ users online this morning. Whatever Egor is doing marketing wise is working I guess lol.
    I notice since it went up from 1500+ to 2500+ visitors it has gotten worse. if it goes much higher without more bandwidth added then this site will soon become unusable.

    Because there absolutely aren’t 2500 people posting. Click the little icon to show who’s actively logged in and it’s like 20 people.

    True that there is not 2500 people posting, but with the 2500 users online how do you know they are bots and not genuine visitors that haven't bothered to create accounts and start posting?

    https://www.4tradeit.co.nz/

    Would you believe that 4tradeit currently has 700 users online at the moment?

    Is it bandwidth or server resources (CPU etc) that could be the actual problem?

    A lot of 408s for me. Seems to be intermittent. Chrome latest version.

    well I think I answered my own question. Looking at where the traffic goes it won't be bandwidth. It'll be a server resource or database performance issue.

    Would the issue be based around people logging out or leaving the site and the server not handling it properly?

    Maybe that's why it says so many users are on when they're not.

    Why are you so defensive of the bots? It'd be interesting to analyse the IPs.

    I find it unlikely. But I don't have the logs to go through.

    Server has probably been turned into a malware host hence the extra load, it runs a version of php that went eol in 2016...

    There's automated exploits trying to get vB servers everywhere atm (re: the 0day above), so I'd not be surprised if it was compromised or we weren't paying enough AWSbux to deal with the spam traffic. Does GPF wave AWS WAF in front of it or something? Can we just drop any traffic that's hitting obvious exploitative endpoints?

    There's a bunch of services that could be setup to help since it's in AWS, but it really feels like no one is watching it.

    Edit* that just got a whole lot faster.

    Brilliant gif. I've had slow loading and 503 errors. For the last few weeks surfing GP has been hit and miss.

    Edit also 504 errors.
