Occasionally Really REALLY slow? also error message on every page?

Been running the ol' Vanilla forum for months and months now, with little problem.

However, now im getting occasional EXTREMELY slow performance, usually for an hour or so at a time. Refreshes take up to 10-15 seconds, and it even times out every now and then. And then all of a sudden fast again.

Ive checked with the server admin and the server is absolutely fine aside from our site.

What may or may not be part of the problem is this error message on each and every single comment page (appears as a yellow warning at the bottom left of each page although not on discussion view, only within each "thread"):

Line: 322 Char: 1 Error: 'document.forms.frmPostDiscussion.elements' is null or not an object Code: 0 URL: http://yaddayadda/comments.php?DiscussionID2222&Page=1

Any ideas?

    That error is a javascript error. It should have little to no relationship to the slow performance.

    The performance may be a slowdown between the webserver and any other computer or network between you and it, or its own database server. One thing to help narrow this down would be to see if static pages are also slow (i.e.

    If that is slow, then its the server itself or the network. If that is fast, its probably the database.

    So, where would that javascript error be coming from?

    WallPhone's static page check is a good idea.

    Also, does disabling all your extensions make a difference?

    What addon's have you got running?

    It might be ideal to deactivate an addon one at a time and see if deactivating it removes the error message.
