Why is the new OCN so taxing on CPU/RAM - Page 6

post #51 of 158
I don't notice the increased load on CPU or RAM, but only in that it takes a bit longer to load an OCN page.

My TF tablet loads pages fine--i.e., I don't notice any sort of CPU or RAM-taxing going on. Load time is also noticeably longer than the old platform.

All in all, it's tolerable, it'd be nice if these things could be resolved, but other than seeing FF use more RAM and CPU in task manager, I honestly would never have noticed.

Switching to vB4 and setting up additional server allocation would have offered an upgrade path from vB3 (which was EOL), while delivering the performance characteristics we'd become accustomed to. Of course, that costs money - and before anyone starts...not once did the administration here reach out to the community for support - instead electing to outsource to a company that data mines and shares ad profit.
Remember the old adage Chipp - "nothing in life is free."


How can we integrate vb4 into the existing site ? Writing fast,efficient forum software is complicated. It takes years of work and debugging to get something comparable to VB, and to be honest, this is not comparable. the features are nice, but the performance is in the toilet. I really doubt huddler is going to be able to do anything about the situation either. If they were smart, they'd buy VB and integrate with VB.

VB has all the code, or liscense the technology/code base.

Becuase flatly, this is still driving off DROVE of users.

There is tapatalk or whatever its called on android, i just feel like im missing out on the ocn experience if im not in the browser. This gives me a good reason to upgrade to one of the new android phones on verizon biggrin.gif droid razr or samsung galaxy nexus (nexus is top pick for me)

i've noticed the site being much slower than before, i don't think it's my browser or system as other sites load just fine. that said, i can more or less live with the speed, and i'm sure it will be sorted out sooner or later, i hope...

ok, a bit off topic here, but i don't really know where else to post...so, one thing i wanna ask is that does anyone noticing any weird formatting issues? i created the asus directcu club, and if you scroll down to the members list, there are lines between each member, which isn't supposed to be there, and i'm not sure how to get rid of it... also there are problems with colour of text! it basically doesn't work anymore. so in the box where you write your posts, say i want to write a blue coloured OCN, and when i click on the 'Text Colour' icon, this is what happens ---> OCN....yes, it turns green without giving me any options. judging form the coding, 008B00 seems to be the default colour, which i guess is green, i'm no colour expert so i don't know all the colour codes off my head, so i'm a bit confused as how to change to any other colour other than green?

also i miss the option to adjust the colour of your personal signature, i don't know if that's a bug or OCN is trying to stick to the blue(hyperlinks) and black/gray(normal text) theme?

EDIT: nevermind about the lines on the asus directcu club, got that fixed, turns out 5 of those "-" together makes a line across the page....

Code:

because hidden inside this is also the code for loading Avatar pictures. And even when I have turned off the carousel and Avatars it still loads....... by turning these features off and then Adblocking this element it is no longer needed or loaded.

I know it's not the ideal answer but the site loads quicker because its loading less.

It is worth noting that right right-hand column of the site includes, outside of the forums, things like the buttons to add a new rig
can be done from the profile.

or the section to add a new product/review
I am sure many of us will not be writing reviews
Quote:
hiding that entire element will hide those features by extension, and we can't guarantee you'll be able to make the most of the features.
I am here to Forum, and part of the enjoyment of a forum is finding what you want or if not finding asking.
Quote:
Particularly in threads, the right column might not seem to useful right now - as the tag database builds and more content is tagged, you'll start to see that area fill with links to content that is related to the content you're looking at now. For example, say you're reading a thread about a Radeon 6990 - in the right column, you might see other threads where people talk about the 6990, any guides or FAQs related to it, member reviews of the hardware, etc.It is all designed to be smart and pull the different sections of the site together. The more tags we put onto content as a community, the better off that area will be sooner.
But it will still be in the way. Tags are still shown down next to the reply box (not that I have seen any yet) TAGS only ever work if everyone agrees on how to use them, otherwise they become very messy.

The section in bold was why I left FB ( and other sites) their idea of showing me what they think that I think I need..... If I want to find something I will search for it and have a full list of options not just the ones that "someone/something" has decided I should optionally look at and shown on screen even if i don't need it.

Screen real estate is key here, when on the forums I just want the forums, I am not looking for a review etc, I am here either to ask a question or help people answer them. the extra features just get in the way and slow things down.
If I want to read a review/article or look at recent posts in the AMD section? then I will go to that relevant section.

I know to some that seems like an Epic rant.... It's not, I am trying to be constructive about why people are posting and saying a whole host of things (some i agree with/some i do not)

Speed would be Improved with the removal of "extra features" that can always be accessed from a menu or alternate page if needed. JS could be optimized by not loading everything even when the options that use them are off.

Checked on Firefox 7 on 2 Machines, taking off the right column & the avatars help somewhat but even then its not 100% smooth for me.
But the site runs good on Chrome, Please fix it for Firefox

I noticed that CPU usage is much higher in Firefox than in Chrome or IE9. Firefox can get up to 70 percent CPU usage on a single core with an i7 920 @ 4.1 GHz. However I do notice a strange behavior.

In Firefox, when you scroll down with the mouse wheel on the main page, the sky blue highlight is rendered for each sub forum. In Chrome, it does not have the sky blue highlight during scrolling. It only highlights once the scrolling has stopped and you move the mouse over a subforum. Chrome kind of cheats. tongue.gif

If you put the mouse cursor towards the dark blue sides and scroll down in Firefox, CPU usage is drastically reduced.

Chrome is very optimized for java and so should work better than FF on here.

Have you tried FF8? ( I know not exactly the answer but it may help)

Or if you are on a 64bit windows try waterfox (64bit firefox (uses the 64bit java))
