    i've observed that whenever traffic is high or you can say load is high , it goes too slow and it has been frequent during past two months

    I think the real-time updates of the pages is killing the OS. During peak-hours, I think it is sufficient to display a button (from red to green) to indicate the page can be refreshed (by pressing the button), instead of updating it. In fact, sometimes I find the automatic update an interruption when scrolling or reading. Waiting 2 minutes to complete a post is definitely an indication of overload.

    If I were the developer, I would do a profile and put a microscope on the recent updates to the OS.

    Unless it's an exponential increase in traffic, in which case new servers are needed, unless we make the kind of compromise I suggested.

    agreed, and you can observe this pattern , whenever traffic increases or the number or people increases , OS says i am giving up :D

    This real-time update is useful for Latex, answers to the current question and message notifications. Updating the questions is a luxury that we can do away with at peak hours and replaced by a green button. It's better to have acceptable degraded service than to work with a saturated OS. The laws of supply and demand will rule in the end... users give up when the OS does.
