    Thanks for you tip. I took it to heart and just installed XCache on our development server.

    It makes stuff a _whole_ lot faster indeed !

    i've been looking into SS performance too, and SS still seems kind of slow sometimes? Especially in the demo website the blog page comes up really slow. Any thoughts or improvements on this?

    the blog might be slow due to widgets taking content from third party websites?

    I've noticed this as well. My sites take a long time to beginning sending the files (waiting for server) 5-15 seconds depending on the page. Once the page is sent, then everything else loads quickly. The demo site is a little faster. It seems that the DB or SS core is holding things up? Unfortunately, for a client used to something like Wordpress, SS can seem like a step backwards... Hopefully, 2.3 will offer a little speed bump.

    In the meantime, any tips for optimization? (when you don't own/have control of the hosting server)

    It is odd since silverstripe pages normally take 100ms to produce or much less if optimised.
    I'd suggest ensuring you're running a PHP accelerator and that the web server is caching files in a sensible fashion.

    Can I suggest you run a tool like ApacheBench on your server (you can run it remotely) and paste the results here?

    I think the admin is far to slow to load. I have also had clients complain that it is slow which has frustrated them.

    We upgraded our server which has helped ease the problem.
