Still a Slow load
« on: December 22, 2009, 08:34:51 PM »
Hi Guys,

I am running SMF 2.0 Rc2 with PortaMx 0.971 and got a drastic increase migrating from RC1.2.  However, I am still experiencing major slow downs when I get 5 users and 20 guests running around the forum.  can take upwards of 20+ seconds to generate pages.

I ran status.php, and the numbers seem to be way out of wack.  Can anyone please offer any suggestions.

I have a VPS And we are currently in the process of upgrading to a dual core 3.0Ghz machine.  We will assign about 8 GB or ram to my SMF VPS Box, and I am told I will be allocated a complete single one of the CPU's.

Regardless I am looking for some suggestions to these numbers if anyone can help.

Your mysql configuration is seriously out of whack. Post your my.cnf?

Here you go..  Thanks for looking at this.

I would have to say, based on all the reading I have been doing.. I hardly have any settings in this file.  Perhaps that is my problem, but the real question is.. What settings do I add, and what do I not..

Well, lessee. Would want more details on your needs and specifics, but I've made some additions in bold that should help you enough for now.

Awesome,

I will keep a backup of my old file, and try making these modifications..  Thanks for the help.

I will report back.

LOL.  No worries, I figured out what you meant..  I replaced the file after editing it.  Stopped MySQL, and Restarted it, now here is my result.

I have seen a lot of reference to converting to INODB or however it is pronounced, and I am afraid that might be a bit out of my capability.  I have a growing community here, and expect to increase membership quickly.  It probably would be quicker to convert to that format sooner then later if it is preferred, just not sure about how to going about that.  Anyway, I appreciate your efforts, and hopefully this has made a difference, I doubt I will know for a few days if things really are smoother.

Thanks again,

Trev

Converting to InnoDB is advisable once you get more than 100 people online at once.

InnoDB is more sensitive to bad tuning, but it's no more difficult than setting a few variables in your my.cnf file.

This makes sense, and I am probably about 4 months away from that kind of traffic.  Currently getting just over a million hits a month (about 126,000) page views in that time frame. 

The above changes yo my.cnf have improved performance a little, but I think it could be better still.

Just need to know where to go with this next.

Best regards, and Happy Holidays to all.

Err, how many posts, topics, users and boards do you have? You may want to set the key_buffer to 64MB or 128MB.

Even that's suspicious, though - can you tell what else is running?

Sorry, I meant 4000 Posts..  and 300 users..  I upgraded my server hardware, and things are way better now..  Still think I can tweek the My.cnf a little better then what I have now, I read your LAMP tutorial, which is incredible by the way, but a little out of reach for me..

Thanks for all your help.  My site is only 3 months old.  But the posts, topics, and memberbase is growing at an amazing rate.
