    Hi all,

    I have added some cacheing to the site to see if this speeds things up.

    The advertising display still holds things up and slows things down a bit and I will be looking at various ways to speed this up going forward.

    Can everyone tell me if they notice any speed increases?

    I am going to try a different system next week or tomorrow to see how that goes as well and decide which is better.

    Based on some very quick bench marking, the speed of 1000 calls to the site is more than halved in actual response time.

    Linux allows for real benchmarking of x amount of requesta much better than a ping

    Well obviously :rolleyes:

    Awesome news. I will still try out xCache next week to see if that helps. I need to expand the memory because the cache size is set to 32 which is the current maximum I have spare RAM sitting there not being utilized so I will snatch some of that and increase the cache size

    Please ignore the few minor downtimes this morning just adding some tuning parameters to the database server to speed it up a little and adding query caching

    Right just made hopefully a final tweak for the day and upped the cache limit, I had to restart the services so all the caches will start to be rebuilt as the day goes on the site will speed up more and more

    I am on call at work and got called in for cases that should not have been forwarded to me, so may as well do a few things here before heading out for a few hours
