I am not happy with how slow the archives site is. It reflects
bad on PostgreSQL and supports the stereotype of PG being "slow".
For example, this page:
took 27 seconds to load completely. Some days, the times are better, but
it always takes a notieeable delay for the page to load. It also seems
to load in three sections: the top banner ad / search box, the title
and header section, and then the rest of the page. The first two load
today in about 10 seconds, the third about 16 seconds after that.
Subsequent hits tend to be much faster (disk caching one presumes), so
if you test, change the above URL to a random month, day, and message.
I don;t think it is on my end: I'm on a very fast connection, and (for
comparison) pgsql.ru loads very, very fast, and runs it searches of
the entire archives faster than arhives.postgresql.org can display
a single message.
