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?
