Why did the pinning rate drop.....?
« on: March 10, 2017, 05:53:06 PM »
Since the last update (I think) my pinning rate dropped significantly. I had my rate set at 125 per day and it went along doing that fine for the last couple months. Suddenly, the last few weeks it only does about 4-6 per day. It doesn't matter if I'm posting to one board or 3, it only does that for each of them.
Anyone else having this issue?

Kevin

I'm only getting about 1/2 the pins I'm asking for. It's been going on for a couple of weeks and I don't have Randomize set.

Check the pins on the account itself at pinterest.com. Are they showing up after each pin job runs? It's possible Pinterest isn't returning the pin details (sometimes that happens when their network is under heavy load) or there's a proxy issue preventing the details from coming back.

I did check that Jon.... The board has only 110 pins after a couple weeks... far less than the 100 per day it's set for.

Then you'll need to put a support ticket into the help desk:

Very similar issue with v.2.14 across 3 different installs on 3 VPS's. Before v.2.14 no issues with pinning, now night and day difference.

****UPDATE**** After using the "Compact Database" and "Refresh Account Data" function and doing restarts (took about 90 minutes) I can see that 1 of my installs appear to be working like it was prior to v.2.14 ;D. Still tinkering with the 2nd and 3rd install.

Submitted ticket yesterday. It appears that SM2 is getting stuck in Pincreate and Pinsearch mode if you take a look under the "Processes" tab. It'll just stay on the exact same Pincreate and Pinsearch. If you come back a full day later it'll be on the exact same ones as before with no new pinning done.

I think I am also facing the same issue.

After my VPS provider keeps on effing up (stay away from cheap ones as they are quite worthless), and having to close and restart SM2 many times, I notice the pin rate has dropped a lot and is not obeying my instructions to pin xx per day. The daily pins are only a fraction of what they are supposed to be in any 24 hour time frame. It's like 7 pins out of 40. That's a lot of difference, and it has been going on for the past few days now.

I noticed a while ago, that I also needed to highlight the job, and click "Run Now" to get it to run pins again.....(but not working as well this time as before).

Jon,

Any suggestions? Should I "Compact database"?

It seems to me, SM2 is a software that really needs a quiet time to run by itself, WITHOUT any disruptions from the VPS, proxies..... or closing or moving it, etc....any of which can mess things up. It's one of the reasons why I am quite afraid to move to a different VPS, because of having to rebuild everything and I am not so sure if that's possible without taking a big hit.

Most VPS services I've seen only offer really barebone servers, and I would have to rebuild everything from scratch.

If you're running on a low quality ("cheap") VPS, there's not much you're going to do that's going to help. Low quality providers will always foul up SM2 or any software that requires consistent up-time and uninterrupted high speed connectivity.

You can try compacting the DB, but there's no guarantees that will make a difference.
