The site is acting slow.

As of about 2:30am EST (if not earlier) the site is acting bogged down, or overworked.

I can sympathize.

NOTE: I am not complaining, just reporting. I hope it isn't anything serious.

As far as I can see paizo.com uses DNS loadbalancing, right now only one of the two IPs has an open http port.

$ host paizo.com
paizo.com has address 64.122.204.227
paizo.com has address 64.122.204.226
paizo.com mail is handled by 0 mail.paizo.com.

$ telnet 64.122.204.226 80
Trying 64.122.204.226...
Connected to 64.122.204.226.
Escape character is '^]'.
^[^]

telnet> close
Connection closed.

$ telnet 64.122.204.227 80
Trying 64.122.204.227...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

I edited my hosts file for the time being.


I noticed this but the problem seems to have been cleared up.

Yeah, one of our servers was very unhappy when I got into the office this morning. A loving kick to the head seems to have brought it around.

Gary, have you considered something more redundant than DNS round-robin loadbalancing yet? I have extensive experience with high-availability loadbalancing setups. If you like and in case you're running Linux on your servers I could compile some relatively easy to implement setups that don't require any additional hardware.
