Question

For the last 3 days my SL rezzing has been crawling to almost non-existent. It takes 1/2 hour to load my environment, including other avies, I am often a cloud and I see everything in grey, on any sim.

Checked with my Internet provider, they confirmed that my high speed connection is excellent.

Machine is relatively new, nothing has changed in it, and I do browse internet without problems.

Please help... are there any others going through this? Is this a SL server/area problem?

 thanks

 

Update: am using Phoenix. Never in 2 years had this problem.

HTTP Texture get is already unchecked.

Enable OpenGL Vertex is already unckecked.

Draw distance was dropped to 24 during this time, it does not help.

Cache is cleared at every log in (I set it up this way in Advanced)... it does not help.

Thank you for your answers, folks.

Just for the heck of it, try opening Preferences (CTRL + P) >> Graphics >> Hardware Settings and UNchecking both Enable OpenGL VertexBuffers (VBO) and HTTP Textures.  Those two features are supposed to speed up texture loading, and they do for many people.  On some older machines, though, they can drop your frame rate dramatically.

When you've done that, I suggest logging out of SL and clearing your cache manually. If you don't know where your cache is stored, look in Preferences >> Network & Cache (or the equivalent tab in whatever viewer you are using).  Delete the entire folder and then relog in a nice no-lag sim like Pooley or Smith.

The combination of those two things ought to help your lag issue.  I'd also suggest lowering your draw distance a bit, if you haven't done that already.

The problem probably is not your viewer.

There is a problem with the SL support services. See: VWR-25940 – “HTTP communication with grid capabilities router is unreliable at times affecting HTTP Textures”

I've seen this lag in textures loading and avatars rendering. In any busy area with 15 or more avatars it is horrendious.

A fix should move into the Release Channels next Wednesday. Then roll the main grid the Tuesday after. However, if the JIRA gets enough WATCHES they may push for faster delivery.

You may be able to work-a-round the problem by turning off HTTP Texture Get. I forget where in Preferences that setting lives.

Wait, sometimes the servers have problems, only wait a few hours at most.

Check the Second Life grid status for logon problems.

For wired connections for modems only: Disconnect all wires concerning your connection, wait 30 seconds then plug them back in again, including the modem and transformer. Wires should snugly fit into ports. These instructions do not apply to routers.

For wired and wireless connections and routers: Reset your system clock. See "help and support" in Windows for directions.
