We recently updated a number of sites from 2.4 to 2.5. We are experiencing a severe response time degradation on the 2.5 site when logged in as an admin user.
In fact, simply logging in as an admin can take as long at 30 seconds. Logging in on a 2.4 site on same infrastructure is lightning fast.
One big issue we noticed is that the plugin info cache is being rebuilt and rewritten on every page when logged in as an admin. Non-admin users are fine.
Anyone else seeing this behavior?
This tracker caught our attention, but we have dug into it enough tell if this is helping or hurting: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-34401
I would be happy to provide links our our test sites if anyone is interested.
