I realized that my postings in the Hardware and Performance forum are for the most past links to documentation or other discussions. So I sat down wrote its introduction anew based on the German Moodle-Technikforum.
Please post your comments, suggestions, corrections, etc. here.
This forum is for discussing issues related to computer hardware for Moodle, as well as comparing notes on Moodle's performance under load. Advice on finding an internet hosting service also belongs here.
Before posting your question please read the Performance FAQ and the Performance documentation. You can also search the complete Moodle documentation site for keywords by entering them in the search box in its left column.
If your questions still remain unanswered, post them here. Please include as much background information as possible about your hardware, the operating system, the web server, the database server, the PHP scripting framework, etc. If your machine is virtualized, also mention the host hardware, the operating system, the virtualization technology used and the resources assigned to the guest OS. You'll find general advice in the Moodle.org forums help.
Please observe our Moodle.org forums Code of Conduct.
