Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

There is a major problem with OSM's servers, i guess. The rendering of the maps is frequently very sluggish. Drawing of the map doesn't complete sometimes, leaving patterns of grey squares.

Is OSM aware of this issue? I can't use the maps anymore, because i can't wait like two minutes for a map part to be completed.

Here's an example:


It tends to be slow all the time, since a while. By the way, it's not only about the missing blocks, but also portions of the map look very coarse & blurry, because the rendering is incomplete.

Other map styles are available. There are 3 others on the OpenStreetMap website, and there are otherse elsewhere too. Here's one that might work for you.

This is not a re-rendering error, rather something with a network connection to your cache server.

Anyway, using the other version from the link solved the problem. That map version doesn't have this issue. Thanks to youl all!

Which maps do you mean and what times do you feel it's so slow?

Currently (from yesterday evening) default "layer" of tiles on OSM.org is in the state of re-rendering due to the update of the map style. This effect will be gradually getting lower and usually gets back to the usual state after a week:
