[Solved] Stalled requests with high paging settings
liamdawe commented on 13 October 2017 at 8:54 pm UTC

Let me know how you get on, I'm constantly getting them and the entire page loads and displays everything within seconds for me.

The notification system is not integrated with the forum yet, waiting until I'm completely happy with it first.

No, sorry, the problem is still there. must be something different
Can you see some long running requests or queries on your side?

It's standard Chrome with Adblock disabled for this site.

Well it's not doing anything heavy and i'm really surprised, even on my mobile net on my phone it's fast.

If multiple others report the same thing, then I can take a look again. For now ill have to sit on it sinve it never happens to me and even on my slower net on my mobile its fine.

Sorry.

Just to be sure, are you using similar paging settings like me (Comments & forum posts per-page: 50
Articles per-page, for homepage and category (tag) view: 25). These hanging requests started after I changed my preferences to that numbers.

liamdawe commented on 14 October 2017 at 9:22 am UTC

Yes exacrly the same settings.

I just tested on my mobile net, while its downloading (so its slow) and a new notification loaded the actual page in about 3 seconds.

mmh, weird indeed. As I said, it's not slow, the request stalls completely and never finishes. While a request hangs I can't even open your front page in a new tab. That request hangs too. Like a deadlock on the session or similar. A browser restart is the only solution.

Ah, i was going by slow loading not a deadlock. To me that sounds like a browser issue, never once encountered that anywhere on GOL.

Only thing I can think of is to have the F12 menu open, with the console tab open and see if anything interesting comes up there.

I already did that. Nothing strange there. I see a
"Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'getEditor' of undefined
at a (ckeditor.js:344)
at Object.CKEDITOR.replace (ckeditor.js:348)
at 2984:1133"
but that seems unrelated.

My guess would be a database deadlock somewhere since I seem to experience this only in combination with a write action into the db ("mark notification as read", "set last login date" or "edit a post". But indeed strange that I seem to be the only one experiencing this. Could be that I'm the only "normal" user using this paging settings . Your user account has certainly a different user role than mine. Eventually that make a difference too.

If there was a deadlock in the DB it would affect everyone regardless of the setting. It sounds like an issue your end.

Try a different browser for a while and if you dont see the issue that will say it all.

User role has nothing to do with this issue, it runs the same for each of us.

jens commented on 14 October 2017 at 4:25 pm UTC

No, a deadlock in a database should affect only the participating transactions. But of course no idea if you actually use transactions. Dunno if this is a db-deadlock, just the symptoms seem similar. From my experience I'm pretty sure this is a server-side issue. My browser fires the request, but the request times out.

Anyway, I understand that this one seems difficult to track down, lets see if somebody else experiences this. It took me a few months until I reported it here since this is annoying behavior, but with a workaround.
