are there any performance improvements for the version 3.0.x of SilverStripe CMS?

All topics I found here were written before v 3.0.x was released.


Cheers, Mario

Here are some caching ideas for SS 3

Basic performance boost in _config.php file add
Object::add_extension("SiteTree", "FilesystemPublisher('cache/', 'html')");
and adjust .htaccess file
RewriteRule .* framework/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
RewriteRule .* framework/static-main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

Make sure you're using a opcode cache. Partial caching is an easy tool for caching your web front end.

As with any application performance work, looking at the numbers is the best way to identify what to improve. I use XHProf to get a list of methods and from there determine what to look into.

Static publishing is great for basic content websites without any interaction but does take a bit more effort to setup.

Thanks for the hints. Will try that or just get the guys a faster server :-)

This one, Willr?

We're currently trying to implement New Relic to the website. Has anyone any experiences with that?
