I've been having problems over the last few weeks/months with regards to how soon after a topic is posted i receive the email notification. Most of this afternoon and i've not received one email to the topics I've left replies on.

To show you the sudden burst of Emails in my hotmail inbox from Ozzu. The topic titles have been removed, that's not a problem.



I was thinking this might be because of the hosting work today on UNFLUX as i did receive an email from another UNFLUX hosted website at exactly the same time.

Its not related, I actually already know what the problem is. It is the way PHPBB3 does their cron system. It isn't very reliable because it doesn't use a real cron. In affect it should be processing all of the emails every 10 minutes, but because its not working correctly it only does it once every hour which means delays can be up to that one hour. That also results in a sudden burst as emails will get backlogged for that entire hour until it finally sends them all out.

I will actually probably be fixing this today as I was already looking into it.

This should be fixed now. The delay should be much shorter.

I'm not happy Brian. It's now taking a minute, what happened to the whole 'within seconds' thing?




I am joking. I'm never sure if i should clarify that or not, i'd hate for you to take that the wrong way.

Ozzu should have passed on the extra cheese.
