Site starting to load slow

Permalink
Hi
I site we did a while ago has started to load really slow, I though there must be a problem at the hosts so got in touch with them. They did some tests and said this is why its loading slow (got not idea what it means)

"Thanks for your patience. I have looked into this for you by running a command along side the website to see what is slowing this down. I have attached the issue that's making the website hang below:"
lstat("/home", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0711, st_size=860160, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0710, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk/public_html", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0711, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk/public_html/concrete", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk/public_html/concrete/config", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk/public_html/concrete/startup", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
lstat("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk/public_html/concrete/startup/shutdown.php", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=164, ...}) = 0
open("/home/sites/lasertrader.co.uk/public_html/concrete/startup/shutdown.php", O_RDONLY) = 5
fstat(5, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=164, ...}) = 0
fcntl(5, F_GETFL) = 0x8000 (flags O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE)


Any ideas? I have tweaked the site cache and it seems to be running better but is still a little slow.

Thanks in advance.

Hi
I used pingdom to run some tests and everything is OK (not brilliant but OK!!) Its the "web browser is waiting for data from the server" thats taking quite a while thats why I thought it was a hosting problem. Its only been doing this the past couple of days and the site has been up over two years.

Do you have a lot of page versions?
