Not sure if it is my connection at this point.
But I started my monthly backups today. And everything is extremely slow.

I haven't seen any slowups throughout the day.

I usually have issues with this site but it is usually around 1am-6am EST....then everything speeds back up to normal. (That is everything..from loadup to sign-in to forum pages takes forever during this time)...usually when it happens I am reporting spammers..let's blame it on them tongue

Same experience for me on this particular board. My own board is hosted by ExpressHosting and I don't have any slowdown issues whatsoever at any time of day or night. Perhaps they have some scheduled routine maintenance here that goes on in the early morning that is causing this?

Well for pointers.
1) It could be my ISP connection(which feedback from other users could provide a hint)
2) Brooks would be aware of any issues.
3) Why not!( it is a admin forum open to discussion)
Shrug back at ya! grin

Okay I see Tom is visiting. And I never updated my post.
So for Tom's benefit!
The slow issue was due to my router.
Rebooting it solved the slow connection.
Normal web browsing was not impacted but when downloading it did appear to be extremely slow via FTP.
All good now.

Ruben,

I don't frequent these forums very often, so I just happened to come through here and see this post.

The physical machine you are on is backed up at 3:15 AM. Typical duration of the backup is less than 10 minutes.

We also backup the server's accounts separately so that we can restore cpanel specific information outside of the files in the public_html folder. That backup runs at 4:00 AM and typically takes about 30 minutes to handle all the accounts on the server.

It is possible that the slowness is related to one of those two activities as they both can be very I/O intensive. We have a fast RAID array on the server, but there is obviously a limit to what can be done these days.

If you have any other issues, please feel free to contact me using our office number, or the support system at https://billing.expresswebsystems.com/

Thank you Tom.
I posted as a sanity check here..And it was happening most of the day.
And as you can see it appeared to be my router that was the culprit.
I had finally noticed that my connection speed was below 10/100 defaults and I have a gigabit connection network as well as paying for extra bandwidth with my isp.
After rebooting my router ftp speeds came back up.

I still am a happy camper.
