My site was having performance problems (mySQL load), and my host (mxhub.com) moved me to a new server to improve things. For a while, it was blazing fast.

Then, I added the NukedGallery Random Image block v2 for Gallery 1.4.4 - at about the same time, the site slowed to a crawl.

I've removed the block, deleted the files, and there were no overwrites, changes to code, or DB alterations that I am aware of. Yet my site is still crawling. The host is monitoring RAM & processes, and can see nothing unusal, and useage is still low - it's just taking a loooong time to load for some reason.

The block can be gotten at:

http://www.nukedgallery.net/download-file-30.html

Can anyone help me figure out why my site has gone the way of the undead - slow and painful? I'd like to restore the speed, but I don't know what changed that caused this all of the sudden.

I'm not sure if I can help you troubleshoot this but I am using this block and, while, yes, it does take a while to load the home (up to 10 seconds) where the block is, it has not affected any of the other pages at my site or its general speed. I set it to load only once, or on refresh. Refresh always seems a bit faster (up to 5 seconds). My users like it, so the delay is tolerable. I also have the block set up to display 4 random images, when I had it set to show only 1, I didn't notice any perceptual delay at all.

So, I don't think it's this block and, like you said, I can't see how the delay would still be there even after the block was removed.

Have you asked some of your users to test your site to see if they also notice the sluggishness? Just to rule out a local computer, net access or browser problem.

Yes, it's across the board. I've tried it in IE and Forefox from my home PCs (2 of them), while on the road at a hotel, and from my office. I've also gotten feedback from my users on this, and the host of the site also agrees it's slow, but when they monitor the server, they don't see any issues (RAM useage, processes, etc.).

My concern is that the block altered something in my setup when it was run for the first time, and deleting the files did not remove it. I don't see it listed as a part of the install process, but I know that the presence of one of the files direclty impacts Gallery itself, even though no Gallery files were changed.

I had the same problem, got the feeling something was looking for some stuff and had a problem finding it.....
Also at the time I had a weather module that wouldnt write a couple bits in peices to the DB, even editing the DB sql it wouldnt read back Shocked
That was the only thing that was oviously wrong

I run 2 sites, a 'test' site to screw up and main site.
The test site is the one that was the prob...i loaded weather to mainsite and that was ok

I tried optimise DB etc etc.
A couple days later had a bit of time to start looking into why....
The problem was then that I had nothing to look for...for some reason everything was back to normal.....go figure???

I do have Weather Harvest on my site - was that the same module you installed?
