Have you done speed tests?
« on: August 15, 2018, 08:00:22 AM »
I was wondering about the efficiency of wb.
I have read many cases where wordpress site is jammed down when the site gets into the news. If there are just few thousand visitors in the night wp is totally chrashed down (if no cache plugins)

So how much better is wb ? have you tested it?

not that I know that WB was subjected to a speed test.
Is there a problem you know?

I have built websites for events that would draw lots of visitors, and the bottleneck has always been the webservers of the hosters, not WB. I have never had WB fail or significantly slow down because of too many visitors. The last event I did was using WB 2.11 and that withstood 1300 visitors over a period of 3 hours, average visit duration was 8 minutes. I used a 'premium' hoster for that event that had to guarantee that the server would not 'collapse'. And it didn't :)
 
If you have a high-traffic WB website that slows down, check with your hoster to see what memory is allocated to your website, what processor power. Consider using dedicated servers if you really need to be sure. I have no indication that WB is written in a way that it would stress a server more than the next CMS.
 
Wordpress is indeed another story. If you want high-traffic on WordPress, you should get specialized WP-hosting. Same with Magento. "Specialized" usually meaning "expensive" :)

@evaki: renamed to csv and loaded with LibreOffice i can see something.
But what have this local data to do with the topic about many visitors at the same time?

CodeALot's posting says what i thought, WB is not the problem. Thanks for that.

Als html kann man die Antwortzeiten sehen (rot gekennzeichnet),
dies auch nur als Anschauungsbeispiel für die Abhängigkeit der Ladezeiten in einem Template.
Lokal deshalb, weil es unabhängig von Hoster, Server, TCP und sonstwas ist. Es geht hier also um Relationen.

In früheren (Audit-)Reports waren, soweit ich erinnere, auch die Antwortzeiten bei der Penetration enthalten. Woraus sich zusammengenommen ergibt, daß WB nicht "in die Knie geht". Wenn man so will, eine Bstätigung der Aussagen CodeALot's.

Wenn jetzt unbedingt Erbsen gezählt werden sollen, dann gerne, auch im Urlaub, ist ja entspannter. :-)
Denn dies ist "eigentlich" auch noch immer keine Antwort auf die gestellte Frage, "um wieviel besser WB ist", und woraus sich diese Effizienz ableitet bzw. worauf sie gründet.

Antworten zur Architektur und deren Folgen können wohl nur die Entwickler beantworten, wenn es denn ein Kriterium bei der Entwicklung war und ist.
