Hi Guys,
I've got SS installed on modest hardware... it's just an old box that i've made into a server.. but anyhow - it's modest..
I have a problem however with page load speed, it's just taking a lot longer than i would expect, i've enabled debug and use the debug_profile=1 to see where things are taking a turn.

Anyhow - SSViewer::process seems to be the culprit, but this is about where i end my knowledge, so i would appreciate a hand?
Line is
18 2474.8816 ms (52.25 %) SSViewer::process

Any clues? or information i can gather to help?

Thanks a bunch:)

ps - i think i'm on the 2.4.6 version, there's no version in the bottom left corner tho?

I have some timers in log messages that goto micro time for me to test each functions speed.

However SS is a bit slower than other some others - this is being addressed in SS3 I do belive.

Hi Swaiba,
So you're saying i'm stuck with it for now? until SS3 is out?

Nope, I am saying that you can add micro timers in your functions to find the bottlenecks

And I'm saying that there are (I hope) big speed ups in SS3

Maybe its been said, but using such a thing as Xcache helped a lot.
