When making any kind of POST to the back-end of my craft install, the server will essentially hang for a significant delay each time. I have researched related issues and have disabled all plugins without any change in performance.

Normal page GET requests are speedy, it is simply an issue of trying to post a change to a page or entry or category.

I can say that this craft install is fairly built up. There are several sections, matrices, fields, categories, etc.

The delays are significant, around 200s or more. Below is a sample of my profiler output when making a simple entry save:

At this point I'm looking for some possible directions solve the issue. I know these issues are tedious and difficult, but I'm willing to take shots in the dark out of desperation!


It doesn't look like MySQL is the issue from the database profiling info you posted.

If you enable devMode, reproduce the issue, then look at your craft/storage/runtime/logs/craft.log folder and find the last request, you can see the code profiling/tracing information. See if you can find out where the 200 second delay is coming from that information.

  • So I got your reply at work with the same laptop that gave me issues. I loaded the page and did a test. The page submitted immediately without problem. I came back to try again tonight and I still have the same issue. Now I'm thinking this has got to be some network issue. I just went through a VPN and the issue seems to be resolved. If I come off the VPN it comes back. I'll continue to investigate and try to leave an explanation if it has anything remotely to do with Craft, but I'm afraid at this point it doesn't.
