Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Using StackOverflow today, I sometimes don't see the “related questions” panel on the right side of the page, where has it gone?

However if I look at the same question later it seems to be there?

Is there a caching issue?

I remember there was a MSO question about this, and the answer is that the algorithm is expensive, so it takes a while before the list shows up – Yi Jiang Nov 4 '10 at 10:12

Correct, related costs 1s+ so it does not run that often.
