High loading times on no.wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT


Several users on no.wikipedia (myself included) have noticed higher loading times when browsing this week. It's hard to reliably reproduce, but some times when loading pages (especially diffs), it can take up to 30 seconds for the page to load. In Firefox, only the "loading circle" is showed (for me) when it's loading, and the status bar says "waiting for" (it varies).

Again, it doesn't happen all the time (for me at least), so it's hard to reproduce, but it is very noticeable when it happens. If there is anything I should check in the browser's dev tools next time it happens, I'd appreciate to know what.

List of steps to reproduce (step by step, including full links if applicable):

  • Try to load pages on, especially diffs
  • Wait
  • Wait
  • Wait
  • Page loads

What happens?: Long loading times

What should have happened instead?: Short loading times

Event Timeline

Reproduced by loading diffs from Special:RecentChanges. Even with client-side caching disabled, only the first load was slow, subsequent reloads were fast. The slow page load appears to be caused by the original request being slow to respond, in the 10-15 seconds range.

Original (slow) load:
Subsequent (fast) load:

(edit: this might be a red herring, is for an uncached enwiki diff and looks quite similar.)

I haven't noticed this happening lately. @Tholme, how about you? If you haven't noticed it for a while either, I think we can close this.

No, haven't noticed this lately either. Agree that this probably can be closed.
