whenever a price thats good comes on mtgoxlive, i go to buy or sell and i cant get in b/c its so laggy or bots mass trading. there was a timespan of no greater than 1.00 minutes. yes, one entire minute where te price went from 8.5 to 7.0 and then back to 8.5 again. i logged in to place a buy @ 7.2 order and didnt get logged back in until the price was back at 8.5

PS a usa server would help :/

Me thinks this hurts normal traders more than botting traders and I cant be the only one, it happens every day at least twice.

Is mtgox down or not? Get the definite answer.
Down or not
mtgox is down!
How do we know?
Check mtgox from 3 random stations in the WatchMouse monitoring network.

    Amsterdam2, NL: Timeout while connecting(1044) ; 621ms DOWN
    (now checking mtgox.com...)
    Padova, IT: Timeout while connecting(1044) ; 592ms DOWN

If 2 or more stations find an error or do not get response within 4 seconds, we consider the site to be "down"

and again... another price swing and i cant log in... the exact same thing. is someone possibly spamming the server so it lags while their bots are trading to keep humans out?

I is time to reduce the load from the bots.  This could be done with a fee, or with rate limits.

99.9% of the time downornot is right.

This downornot.com service is bullshit. It does trip over pretty much any commercial DDoS defense product. I don't know whose DDoS prevention service MtGox uses, but for Prolexic Technologies' it has more than 50% false negative rate. This means a legit HTTP/HTTPS GET/POST from a browser connects through the defense while downornot.com shows the site as down.

I assure you the site would not load for the periods i was attempting to access a trade order (i was already logged in to mtgox so i only needed to refresh the page) . Up to about a minute and 30 seconds at a time. then once the swings are over it loads like normal.

I frequently check MtGox, almost every time I have to refresh the page several times to get access.  Either because of bots or general volume.  I wouldn't keep my funds with them right now.

I am assuming the massive pile of sand in your panties that has accumulated is due a thousand other people trying to trade at the same time and some how you think you are the one entitled to trade??

Isn't that basically it?










Having a site that cannot handle the trade load provides an unfair advantage to those who are able to access.  Especially if someone is attacking the site in a way that specifically makes it impossible for anyone else to trade.  His complaint is not only merited, but shed's light on a very good reason not to use MtGox.

When I was trying today, it was taking over 120 seconds, then I would stop it and reload, and repeat, until after 4 or 5 tries it would finally load.

Lame.

i dont understand why people constantly buy and sell. don't they realize you pay fees for every transaction? and that if you had 1% of a brain you see that bitcoin goes up and down very unpredictably.

it fuckin pisses me off that people trade bitcoins around like stock.

I believe you. But adding more servers isn't a solution. The solution is to provide a rapid trading platform that behaves differently than the typical DDoS tool. Most of the online brokers have a Java applet just for that very purpose: it opens and maintains a single connection. I've heard that it is possible to do the same using Ajax and Websockets.

Again: adding more servers helps nobody. They will be as vulnerable to a DDoS as they are right now. The solution is to change the protocols from dumb to smart (JSON to FIX). Good luck with that!

You have to close your browser and reopen it in order for it to unfreeze.

are you a child or do you just possess the mind of one? The daily volume of the site would lead one to believe the owner could maintain a website that does not take minutes of refreshing to load. If that is your response to a legitimate grievance I question your general sanity and well being. Other than that I have no response because your post does not really dignify anything further.


 its in gox interest that everyone can place a trade order 24/7 as the way gox makes money is on the trade fees... more trades... more fees... more income...

You people act like you're involved in a highly regulated, well financed, established market with credible people.

Bitcoin is grey area, some what shady, un-regulated and definitely wild west..........

Where else are you going to trade, TradeHill or Bitcoin7 LOL....

Like I said earlier, the sand accumulation in the panties is due to him thinking he was the "one" entitled to instant access...

Yes, TradeHill as a matter of fact.  I refuse to use MtGox, this reason among many.  Part of a Free Market is that it becomes self-regulating.  Companies that don't handle problems as obvious, and repairable, as this are going to shrivel and die.  Too big to fail does not exist in Bitcoin.

I'm no huge Gox fan by no stretch, but it is the best we have.

They are not making a huge sum of money everyday and refer to my previous post, I think it applies.

I think they make enough to have a decent setup and separate sets in EU NA and SEA. there is no way you can convince me they dont make at least 20k a month, easily enough for VERY good redundant dedicated hosting in many countries.
