The average number of requests on www.t3node.com is growing more and more. Since the website is hosted on a tiny virtual machine shared with others, the overall server performance is bad. Today I decided to serve pages from file cache to reduce the load. This little case study describes the problem by example and gives some key data for illustration.
The comment form of this blog was broken the last two days. The reason was that I disabled the no_cache parameter in the install tool. It seems the ve_guestbook extension somehow relies on this parameter. The comments are now working properly again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
