Hello everybody,

If I turn on 15 plugins, my site is 3 time slower than with 5 plugins. Here we need a way to avoid this Confused:

I doubt it's the amount of plugins. Some plugins create more load than others. GUS, for example, is notorious for increasing the load - there may be others.

What do you have installed?

bye, Dirk

Ok some plugins consume more than others.

I made this test on index.page with user fonctions and admins only blocks, and professional theme :

No plugin available
Created this page in 0.08 second

1 plugin available (load time average)
PHP Formatted Code
Calendar (0.09)
Dokuwiki (0.08)
Flickr (0.08)  
Links (0.09)   
Mediagallery (0.12)
Paypal (0.08)
Polls (0.10)
Spam-X (0.08)
Static Pages (0.09)
XMLSitemap (0.08)


All plugins availables:
Created this page in 0.18 seconds


Blocks consume loading time too. So to much block, long waiting.

Were you logged-in? In that case, GL also loads the libraries for the FCK editor etcetera, which makes the site quite slow sometimes.

It would be nice if there was a separate admin css which would only be loaded by logged-in users. Now it's still quit hard to keep the css as light as possible.

For css the load time is important the first time especially when there is a lot of css file.
We need a way to compress css in only one file : See the feature request.

We can cache css too. A way is to add this rule in .htaccess file :
PHP Formatted Code
<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType text/css A2419200
</IfModule>


Where 604800 is the caching time

PHP Formatted Code
300 = 5 minutes
2700 = 45 minutes
3600 = 1 hour
54000 = 15 hours
86400 = 1 day
518400 = 6 days
604800 = 1 week
1814400 = 3 weeks
2419200 = 1 month
26611200 = 11 months
29030400 = 1 year = never expires

If anyone is interested, read this article and then we can have a discussion what people like the best. Currently I am running XCache but its not tuned the way I want it. I am most likely going to try others, to see if I can get better performance. The Demo site with the following plugins:
Calendar
Captcha
Forum
Links
Polls
Spam-X
Static Pages
Vthemes
XMLSitemap

Page loads are as follows:
Non-logged -in users - 0.31
Logged-in users - 0.39

These numbers are a tad high because I do have about 15 total sites on this one machine, so that might account for some of the reasons for it being high. I have notated that when when the number of sites that are not running, that the load times have dropped down to as low as .08 seconds. for non logged in users. Michael

All times are EST. The time is now 04:46 am.
