    Unhappy Help! Why is my server suddenly running painfully slow?!

    Hi, I've had a server for over a year and everythings been running pretty smooth. Now suddenly for past week or so my site been running PAINFULLY SLOW! It'll take nearly 2-4 hours to download a 100mb wmv file. I dont know exactly what went wrong. I haven't tweaked anything. So why the sudden slowness?

    I'm not a server wizard. So I don't know the in-depth things to do to check.
    Is there a way to look into cpanel to find out whats wrong? If so, what?
    What can the issue be?

  2. Did you contact your host?

    If the server is reporting optimal stats, it can be a network issue ( either at server level or at your end ). Downloading speed is not just depending on server, but depends end-user's INTERNET speed as well. Just to confirm your network, try donwloading any other files and confirm it. If you can confirm it is not your local problem, issue a download and check server status closely. If IO / load are good, check system logs or do a reverse donwload of a file to the server (that way you can check the upload / download speed ). If the result is not as expcted, talk to your network / datacenter support.

    Ok, thx everyone for there comments! I contacted my server hosts and they suggested to upgrade from 10mbps to 100mbps. I did that!
    But the server is STILL running extremely slow! Nothing has changed! Its still taking 2-4 hours just to download a 100mb wmv file...

    In that event only your server provider can assist you. There should be network related issue or may be they forgot to move you 100mbps network.
