Question

My website was working fine yesterday (loading normally and such) then suddenly becomes super slow, saw it on the network tab

As I deployed my web-app (its an HTML5 game) it was working as intended yesterday, and loads finely and smoothly. Then I went to sleep and check now. And voila, suddenly the website loads very very slowly. I checked the console to see anything like errors. none. then I check network tab on developer tools in chrome. and saw that it takes like 3minutes to load a 400kb PNG file… like what happened?

I realized something after testing, its fast during the nights here at my time, yet during the day time, its super slow. I tried using Data, Different Internet (Via going to cafes and etc) its the same scenario.

Hi there,

What I could suggest is to try and check which processes are consuming the most server resources as described here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-find-the-processes-that-are-consuming-the-most-server-resources

Also, as the speed of the image download could be caused by your local ISP network speed, I could suggest testing this out with another internet connection just to make sure that it is not a local problem.

Feel free to share the output of the htop command here so we could see the resource utilization and the processes that are associated with it.

Best,

Bobby
