I’m on M2.03 using Windows based computers in house and I’m experiencing a terribly slow reaction time between inputs and response during the general use of Moodle and especially during the editing process. Literally it’s as much as 5 – 15 seconds between mouse click and full page reloading. If I could put the delays together it would be enough time for a great power nap.
My Set-Up is: All computers are Pentium 4 or equal and some better. We have a DSL line (sorry don’t know what type until Monday) that use a “2-Wire” modem and two switch boxes each listed at 10/100/1000 speed to handle all of our computers. One 16 port switch drives all of our office computers and one 24 port switch runs all of our training computers. We use our office computers for everything and are not experiencing any particular problems with the rest of our activities on our network however, most of our activity is in-house and not internet based but the system including basic internet usage does not have this problem. My Web-Host has a high-end system that serves many clients and assures me that no one else is having this sort of problem.
I’ve bypassed all of the switch gear and tried several different computers and it’s all about the same. I ran several speed tests on the DSL line both through the switches and not and the results are: average download speed of 5.0 mbps and average upload speed of .63 mbps with and without the switch. The upload seems slow but is not causing problems elsewhere. The phone company has been out a while back when we had a connection problem; fixed the problem and said all is well.
Could someone tell me if this up load speed is my problem and do I stand a chance with this type of DSL line? If the speed is suitable, then what else can I do to fix this problem?
