    Yeah, I agree with that. We are getting a lot of passing visitors. I'm sure many of our club members have internet connection. perhaps I will ask around and see what people want to see on a website so it can be improved for people to keep checking back from time to time.

    Looking at memory usage it goes almost to the 1GB limit when viewing many pages.
    Forum Speed-putty-top-highuse.jpg

    When its in a dormant like state its using around 700Mb. so this is probably the operating system. so we have 300Mb for the website to run, which should be plenty but occasionally i get an Error 500, which I'm looking into.
    It looks like it exceeds the memory limit from time to time.

    When it gets near to the memory limit it slows down. Another 512Mb will be added some time today, this should sort the issues. Hopefully it will be done over night.

    The upgrade should be happening between now and 9am. They will need to reboot the web server, so we will be offline for around 15mins. This should be the last upgrade for some time.

    Results of a speed test this morning on the website reveals a great improvement from last week.
    Forum Speed-speed-test.jpg
    Speed test done on Blazemeter.com testing around 5 webpages on the site.

    Set up the test to start of with a couple of simulated users and then ramp up to 50 people over 30mins an then stay at 50 users for a further 35 mins.
    The Dark green line is the response time from today. So on average around 1.2 seconds. Where the previous results from the 29th April were Around 5 seconds or more.

    The main speed improvement recently done was installing the APC caching system, this was a bit fiddly and I generated a tread(http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk/re...html#post20062) while installing it and fiddling with settings. It seems to be reliable and I'm well impressed with the speed results.

    Well I ran the testing once again, as been tuning the caching system. No APC cache anymore, using XCache, 128Mb PHP cache and 256Mb Variable cache. Also running Memcache of 256Mb which only Google Pagespeed mod has access too.

    Page load times of 0.9 seconds now, where before it was 1.2seconds. Using the same previous graph as shown above. The thick green line is the new speeds.
    working good.

    In the quest to make the forum faster, yes I know, I'm on it again. You know when something work, you just have to fiddle, well I@m getting that itch again.

    The website is in PHP, vBulletin(the forum package) isn't very optimised, so any way to speed it up will be handy. The quicker it can do things the better it will perform when there is a rush of people. Anyway, The PHP is running as an Apache Module, although there are two other choices CGI and FastCGI. After reading this article:- How to change PHP install from being CGI to Apache Module? - cPanel Forums

    FastCGI/FCGI -- These are actually two different flavors of PHP but I will lump them together because they are so very similar. Originally, this was essentially just a higher performance versions of phpSuExec but it has since evolved substantially and today this is much more like a higher performance version of SuPHP in that its security is now very nearly identical to that of SuPHP though it is a bit more complicated to configure and maintain and not as well suited to handle large numbers of web sites on the same server machine but it's strengths lie very heavily in its ability to handle larger and more heavy traffic sites with a lot more simultaneous users and this is also the PHP flavor with the fastest performance of all the PHP types. It is a very good choice if you have a few sites on your server or a really busy web site with a lot of visitors. The technical differences are quite fascinating from a programmer's perspective but that is definitely beyond the scope of this post which is really just meant as rough draft overview to answer your question.

    My first choice in the case of vBulletin would be FGI/FastCGI and might also look into a caching accelerator like X-Cache or similar to push the performance bar a bit further. The second choice on the totem pole behind that would be SuPHP behind that.

    However when I enable the FastCGI the forum appeared to work but had some permission errors. i think thats something to play with another day.

    Thanks Dan, I've always stayed clear of PHP etc so can't offer any help.
    Its interesting, but if me and Clare are both on the forum on our respective iPads one of us usually experiences a really slow connection. If the one who has a slow connection swtiches to 4G the problem goes away. Its only the 'gades forum where this happens. Its as though it doesn't like two IP addresses the same.
    Its not a problem as its quite rare we are both browsing the forum at the same time but it does happen.
