Whats with the search times?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I noticed that whenever I do a search or click "New Posts" there's a box in the upper right-hand corner. It says this search took {insert time here} seconds. But there is a bug. It usually comes up with like 50 thousand seconds. What is with this? ssh?

Yes, the bug is known. It will probably go away when we upgrade to vBulletin 3.6 which can't be soon enough for my liking!

The research I've done tells me it's not a Vbulletin bug. The bug as far as I can tell has to do with the scripting process in general. Java sees the same issues. They can "fudge" the system a bit to try to minimize the symptom but it's more a problem with mismatched clocks on clients and servers as well as problems with some scripts getting their data from different sources..

I'm with Jstraw, It probably won't go away or it will re-appear in some new form when a scripting language changes..

Poor scripting, then. Easy fixes. SMOP.

I think time zones must come into it as well - most of my searches return in negative time!

Does that mean you found what you were looking for before you were looking for it?

No I found it while my computer was off!

I've always been skeptical about any client-side involvement.

So do mine. But, I'm only one timezone away. It also depends on how long it actually is. If it's short, it tends to be more skewed than if it's a long search.

I considerate fortunate for me, that I find nothing about my experience at EpicSki of less consequence than the duration of my search queries. :

More research.

I've done several searches and I think it's a cache issue with the servers.

Even if I do the search while I'm on the actual server I sometimes come up with negative 40K seconds. I'll do the same search 10 times in a row a few seconds apart and 3-4 might be accurate the rest are way off..

Huh. Can we turn the counter off?

Suits me just fine. I can edit the template to make it not display that with no trouble at all... just say the word.
post #16 of 20
I agree. turn off the counter.

I have found if I ignore my clients long enough, they stop bothering me.

The problem has now been "fixed."
