First visit delay loading

This is a trivial point i know.

A client has asked me about the 1 - 2 second delay when initially visiting the SS based website. SS is quite heavy in places that i already know about. We were having problems with the max memory allowed bug. We successfully solved by reducing the BrowseCap.ini file that is loaded from Sapphire->Misc into silverstripe-cache. I think the file is still causing to much memory overheads though.

Is the BroweCap.ini file only used for Stats? I don't really use the built in stats because we use google analytics instead. Is there anyway to disable the stats and negate the need for the chunky stats array in the file?

If the Stats is not the problem, does anyone know of any ways of streamlining the memory load on the site?

See this topic - for disabling stats.

Stats is going to be an optional module in the next release. This should solve alot of memory issues! -

Thanks LeeUmm and willr.

I will instate the dirty hack for the time being.

Just out of curiosity, do you know when will we be seeing the next release?

what about the admin section, I find it is a pretty big load the first time you load it.
