I have been a dreamhost customer for about a month. I have noticed that sometimes the pannel is slower than others, but the pannel is NEVER what i would call fast.
Sometimes i can take minutes just to go from one page to another. Creating setup for 50 sites and/or emails takes hours/ days when it is so slow.
1. Can load balancing the panel on more servers speed it up?
Could the panel programers add some kind of job queue. For example when you click "fully host domain now", or create new user, or create email box it takes a really long time. Is this because of scripts running to actually create the account in real time? If the process was added to some kind of job queue it would speed the pannel pages up.
What is the bottleneck? Is dreamhost working on clearing/fixing the bottleneck?
Anything else you guys can do to make it faster?
