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


Tile generation is extremely slow for all of USA at least: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/39.94884/-75.16229

However, the .DE version (German style) works great and fast. https://www.openstreetmap.de/karte.html

Questions: Why does this issue occur? Is there any estimations of when it will be back to normal speed? Any ideas of how to use this map on my application without it being slow? I use Leaflet.

Please keep in mind that there is a tile usage policy if you want to use them in an app.

Have been experiencing the same problem in any app or website or even https://www.openstreetmap.org when using classic OSM tiles. Other styles render instantly, but classic takes forever to load if ever at all.

Tiles are optimised for delivery on openstreetmap.org and not for third-party applications. It's very possible that if you're using OSM in your own app, it will be slow. There are lots of other alternative tile providers using OSM data.
