I have a user complaining of slow connection to EE. It happens when the user clones an entry. It sometimes times out, sometimes it's just very slow. This is a homepage entry and it gets cloned frequently. Any thoughts?

    What do you mean by 'cloning' an entry? I'd start by enabling the output profiler (admin->system administration-> output and debugging) and seeing where the bottleneck lies. Then get back here and report :) Commented Nov 21, 2012 at 23:12
  • Does this slowness happen no matter where they are connecting from? For example, have they tried from home as well as at the office.

  • I have an the Zenbu MX Cloner installed that allows you to clone entries. I plan on turning on debugging and seeing if there is a bottleneck, I'll report back. Commented Nov 22, 2012 at 3:15

This is just an idea, but are you using NSM add-on updater? I have slow loading when this add-on gets stuck on when checking for an update. Alternatively , try disabling some accessories if you using any others.

    Check all add-ons, especially accessories. I once had the same thing and the problem turned out to be the Health Check add-on.

  • Any add-on doing a request to a third party web service is one of the first places I look - could be an SMTP server, or NSM add-on updater, etc. Commented Nov 29, 2012 at 4:49
