Preventing periodic extreme slowness in loading page
Ezoic is doing a great JOB by using CloudFlare and other caching / CDN system but sometime this isn't enough.
The image below shows reapeated strong delays in the page loading (50 seconds) measured through Pingdom.
In the meanwhile WP Performance Profiler and Newrelic installed on the Website host can confirm that the VPS was almost idle.
The slowness problem seems in Ezoic and obviously it leads to lose a potential Adsense customer.
It's possible to check the data here:
It doesn't happen often, but it seems to happen. So any solution / suggestion to this problem would be appreciated!
I have just confirmed the same thing on techrrival.com. I was experiencing very high TTFB. So here is what I did.
1. I mapped my domain to my server IP via hosts file.
2. I measured the TTFB of the same and it was almost 3x-4x lower than that I was getting while using it via Ezoic.
I think this needs to be addressed.
Jenny here from Ezoic Uk. Tools like Pingdom unfortunately do not work when a site is using asynchronous (or 'lazy' loading). This is one of the features which is automatically deployed by Ezoic in order to improve the speed in which the content reaches your users.
I'd recommend taking a look in your Ezoic dashboard under Reporting > Big Data Analytics > Site Speed, or contacting support@Ezoic.com, if you have any questions about the speed of your site. When asynchronous loading is active, the page load speed may seem longer, but the content is designed to reach the users faster. We're here to help
so true. I monitor my website response and load time and it is really extremely slow. It was much better before Ezoic. I love Ezoic but performance is a very important factor.
It's also possible to track the loading time of every user using services like Gear5 and the results are not very brilliant. See the pic here: http://imageshack.com/i/p8LF1421p
I'd also like to copy the answer from CloudFlare about the slowness problem:
"In the pingdom link you provided it seems the largest delay is caused by the initial request. This is always to the origin (we don't cache this) so this would tell us that the slowness is caused by your server, not us.
You can see the first request took 17.5 seconds to respond, which is certainly not normal behaviour.
You should reach out to your hosting provider [which is Ezoic] for further support with this.

If I skip Ezoic the server is very fast..
I also notice serious slowdown in the performance of my site since installing Ezoic.
