Read this first!

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 here please read the documentation Performance and and Performance FAQ.

Many of the questions have already been answered. Please make use of the Advanced forum search and the Google custom search to find them.

your moderator Howard.
