Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Can you clarify whether you mean the element14 Community site here, or one of our e-commerce sites? Seems like in your case you'd be using Farnell element14 UK - Electronic Components Distributor.
Please let me know, thanks so much!
No idea if it's linked, but the CPC (cpc.farnell.com) website was also horribly slow the other day too, editing my basket was taking an absolute age.
Same company, similar website, same server maybe?
I'm not raising an issue btw, just suggesting there may have been a link.
This is in reference to the store au.4elements.com
We did some debug on this today because one of our users reported similar. The issue seems to be based on the HTTP version being used by the client. If the request is HTTP 1.1 then the response was near immediate. If the request is HTTP 1.0 then the request had at least an 8s delay for us. With the way the site is designed this adds up to make the site take minutes to load.
So, with this information ( HTTP1.1 / HTTP1.0)
Is there anything we as users can do to fix it?
Hi, i have often used your website to look up the odd part hear and there. but just recently i have used it more to find components for a project i am working on and i am finding you website really really slow when searching for components, updating and deleting items from my basket etc. i am not looking to report it as a problem, its got to the point now that its made send you this feedback message!
