If I click on the dashboard its mill seconds but the site home which loads the categories takes nearly 40 seconds to load
We have about 10 categories, containing around 150 courses
6 x 16GB, quad core webs
3 x 32GB Mysql enterprise, clustered
4 x 16GB Memcache servers
Problem seems only on the site home page, URL below:
And when I inspect it, it appears to be the redirect that is cuasing the issues
Sorry about 2000 courses loaded on to site home
Have you investigated what is going on during those 40 seconds? What is MySQL doing and so on?
Is it still slow if you kick everybody off and it's just one user?
Is this just for the admin (or a limited set of users) or for everyone?
Are there any blocks or other content on the home page that might be causing or contributing to this?
If you are using a non-core theme does it still do it with a core theme?
We made some changes to Redis and now it works much better, but a little worrying that we need a caching mechanism for it to work properly
NFS shared between 6 web servers !!
I know, not a great set up but it was already designed when I turned up
Very slow Howard when its the application code base
We have moodledata on NFS
Moodle application on NFS
which is crap.
We have 3 x memedcache servers for the cache
Moodledata is fine
Moodle codebase (application), is not
Place doesn't want to rsync the 6 webs and decided very early not to cluster the webs, so I am left with a donkey
