Possibly. But I suspect not. I have half a dozen sites Dreamhosted and delays like that were never a problem. I have had them running from sqlite3 rather than mysql, with and without Passenger. I've had other problems but never unacceptable delays. > I've different installations of Radiant, with and without embedded Rails. > Slow either way.

If this is shared hosting then you may be fighting a very basic problem with multi-user machines. You've been swapped out and the scheduler has to swap you back in, and all the priority issues that go with that. If you have a virtual machine there is the analogue of that at the virtual layer. Yes, I know tests show yamma yamma, but in reality the dominant thing is that its the first 'wake-up' that is critical. Its an operating system scheduling issue. > I don't think > it's caching on my machine that's doing it, because it's a small page with > one picture.

I'd suggest that you have some kind of CRON-scheduled 'tickler' that does just enough to keep a bit of your process alive and awake but doesn't produce such a heavy load that it impacts others. -- Objects in calendar are closer than they appear. -- Jim Duncan _______________________________________________ Radiant mailing list Post: Radiant@radiantcms.org Search: http://radiantcms.org/mailing-list/search/ Site: http://lists.radiantcms.org/mailman/listinfo/radiant
