Are there any known performance issues with Stack Exchange (Stack Overflow in particular) right now?

I've noticed over the last several weeks at random times of the day, I get slow responses or timeout from:

  • Viewing a post
  • Saving a post
  • Listing posts by tag
  • Listing posts on the home page
  • Hovering over the inbox or stats on the title bar
  • Posting
  • Commenting

And just about every other part of the site I can find.

It's frustrating when you can't open your inbox, or when you post and it just hangs. Even stranger, sometimes while the animation is still spinning, I can go open the link in a new tab or window and my post is already there. Even though where I posted it is still waiting for a server response.

I've seen this now at at least three different locations on 4 different computers, so I don't think it's just me. Anyone else noticed sluggishness in the site? Anything being done about it?

    Yup. Especially with loading the review page. – bjb568 Mar 25 '14 at 5:56
  • I've been noticing that the inbox doesn't like opening – Richard Tingle Mar 25 '14 at 8:35
