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.

Implementing Couchbase vs Redis for Drupal 7 site with horizontal scaling

We're ll the process of moving our Drupal 7 online app platform site to a major cloud provider that will include horizontal scaling (multiple nodes for Frontend as well as multiple nodes for MariaDB). We're now considering the optimal solution to scale caching.

We are contemplating substituting standard memcache server with either internal Couchbase memcache server or Redis. The goal is to optimize performance of the site.

We are also contemplating upgrading from php v5.4 to php7.

Recommendations for keeping unwanted strings out of locales_source?

On a site I'm helping with we have a problem that the {locales_source} table growing in size and affecting the site's performance. We're using the locale module for front-end translations, but all of our staff are using English so we don't need translations on admin pages. Some recent analysis of the table shows a large portion is for admin pages.

Personalisation / Custom caching

Hi all,

I want to build a module that handels caching and is able to deal with altering pieces of content based on some variables.

For a client we've developed a D7 site a couple of years back. The site is high-traffic and serves a lot of visitors but only anonymous users. The site uses views, panels and panels everywhere for it's layout, general pagecaching for cache and all media comes from a CDN. Everything works great!

Fork Drupal for High Performance purposes.

Today Drupal becomes a very big part of the Web. It's a very powerful tool for creating a small or medium site of any kind with minimal effort. It may satisfy almost all business needs on the market.

But there is a big gap between business card website which have 50 visitors per day on 10 pages and a high performance site which should handle 1k+ visitors per day and serve 500k+ pages.
Right now I can see a lot of contrib modules which are solving some of the performance problems that will certainly appears while your site traffic is growing.

Alternative Drupal Implementation in Node.js or other languages?

Has anyone thought about or done any work on doing an implementation of Drupal in a different language? I'm thinking of something that can use the same MySQL database and probably has the same front-end ui. I have really liked Drupal and I feel its data model with fields and such is great, but I think PHP is really holding it back and making it unnecessarily slow and complicated.
