SUMO was taking a long time to load yesterday (11/8) and Ricky did something that seemed to help. But today it's slow again. I'm trying to edit and approve articles and I'm often waiting 20 seconds for an article to load, to submit a revision or approve a revision. I tried browsing on other computers (connected to the same router) and I had the same experience. I also tried to browse while logged out and it seemed to be somewhat better but, of course, I can't test editing or reviewing.
Appears network related. Tracert says that "above net" are running slowly. Ericz said earlier that he's enquired about the issues
Four support webservers - support.webapp.phx1.mozilla.com - have hit max clients and stopped responding to web requests today. Something is very unhappy on the back end. Does not appear network related.
One thing about this bug is that it's about "slowness". That's one of those symptoms that comes from a variety of causes and has different manifestations, too. I mention that because I'm going to tweak the scope of this bug to cover the excessive slowness problems that are happening once-a-day or thereabouts because one or more of the servers stop handling new connections. That's what comment #3 is about. I spent some time pouring over Graphite data and bug comments and then asked phrawzty to back out a configuration change that happened on November 7th that I contend turned an occasional slowness problem into a very frequent slowness problem. From the metrics I'm looking at, the site appears to be operating normally since. This doesn't fix the problem that the change on November 7th was intended to fix, though. That problem continues and we/someone will look into tackling that in other ways. I'll keep an eye on things and see if the problem in comment #3 recurs.
I haven't seen any recurrence of comment #3 in the last three days. Verdi: Are you still experiencing the extreme site-wide slowness problems? If not, I propose we close this bug.

Yay! Marking as fixed!
Seems fine to me as well - fast as a lightning bolt!
