High Performance

This group is dedicated to solutions and approaches for high traffic, high performing Drupal sites. As such, it will deal with a lot of information around the rest of a typical Drupal "stack" -- the operating system, web server, database, and PHP tweaks that combine to support the Drupal application.

This is not a support channel or a place to post bug reports.

If you think you have found a bug, use the issue queue for the appropriate project.

If you need support, see http://drupal.org/support for options.

How to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called.

See this image http://prntscr.com/7idx70 for more understanding.

I want to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called. Is it possible to fetch that row total before views rendered? I am also using contextual filter for this view. Views have page type display.

I have also used module https://www.drupal.org/project/views_record_count. but this will print total number of records on Views header or footer. (Not outside of views)

Drupal for large volume sites


I'm writing a report for a local government client about the suitability of migrating their internal and external sites to Drupal.

They have a very document heavy site with a large number of documents (up to 500,000). The documents are static and won't change so there's no requirement for Document Management functionality. They will require metadata and security as well as the ability to search by metadata.

Tracking SQL queries

After spending quite a while trying to diagnose the origin of some slow SQL queries, I looked around for some solutions to better identify the query and lessen the time spent for the initial investigation.

One of the options I found was sending through a comment with the SQL which included information such as the class or function. I've wrote an article about doing it here (https://jacobbednarz.github.io/posts/tracking-sql-queries/) but I was wondering if you had any feedback on how you go about tracking what methods or url's are sending what SQL queries within Drupal.

Performance issues with INNODB vs MyISAM

Not sure where is the most appropriate post for this, let me know if anybody has suggestion.

I am having performance issues with INNODB. My major issue is that with INNODB I am getting approximately 20 times slower performance than with MyISAM. For the purpose of testing I have used Drupal 7 with devel module installed. Further more I used 2 bare bone servers with default installations so I can do parallel comparisons.

Authenticated traffic scale options

I'm wondering if people have any recommendations on scaling authenticated traffic sites?

Context: We've got about 2,500 users, of whom, 50-100 are on at any one time throughout the day. Right now their interactions are on largely static pages so we've gotten away with display_cache / entitycache / APC / Advagg for cache bin optimization so we can deliver pages pretty quickly.
