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.

Navigation menu appears unformatted briefly before page load

Hi all, I am using the MMenu library for both the Navigation and User menus. I've noticed that sometimes, depending on connection speed and browser, the Navigation Menu appears unformatted briefly before the page load. I am not using the MMenu module instead have embedded it directly in my theme. Has anyone experienced this before?

Please see attached screenshots, you can also view this live at www.swapific.co.uk

I've promoted my new module Performance Monitor - https://www.drupal.org/project/perfmon

It has some features:
- Evaluate "Performance score" indicator using web server processing time testing with a small php script.
- System performance testing:
- CPU performance test;
- database performance test;
- file operations performance test;

Perhaps it will be useful to someone.

Boost + Boost Mobile + IIS

Hi there,

My company needs some help creating the web.config file to make it work with boost and boost mobile ( https://www.drupal.org/project/boost_mobile ).

Both modules worked great while the server was Apache, but out client decided to move it to one with IIS.

If anybody has any template for this that worked on the past it'd be great.

Also, we are willing to pay somebody to do this. It's a rush job, so it has to be done today (9:17am here right now).

Using headless drupal with Node.js

has anyone used Headless drupal with Node.js? I'm thinking of converting فروشگاه ساز to headless drupal for ease of adding content and managing our landing pages.

this way I can even manage multiple sites (i.e. our landing pages/ blogs/ etc.) from one Drupal instance whilst keeping the frontend flexible.

Determining the ideal server size to handle 4M page views per month

What would be the ideal server size in terms of CPU and memory to handle around 500K visitors per month with an average of 8 page views per visitor. This would generate 4M page views per month.

The website is a dynamic classified ads website built on Drupal 7.54, PHP 5.4.44, MySQL 5.5.42.

In addition to this the system will handle the creation of the classified ads submited by authenticated users.

An average page will have 1.6MB in size and 180 requests.

Expressa - Drupal Backend Alternative

I wanted to shared with my Drupal friends a project that I've been working on. It's a backend (heavily inspired by Drupal) that exposes a REST api and has an editor which lets you modify your schema (like content types) and content without coding.


It also has a permissions model with roles much like Drupal. It's been really useful for me when I need to create a site API using an online editor, but also want high performance. I'm really curious what you think of it and I hope it can be useful to some of you.

"Large" Multisite / Domainaccess Hosting & Deployment

We are running about 50 Drupal 7 Multisites + 1 Domainaccess Site with 10 Domains on a 2x 64GB 16 Core Cluster Nodes with Apache mod_php with apc and mysql stack.

The multisites are utilizing all the same codebase and just differ in usage of content and node types.
At the moment there are 3 mysqld running on the host.
We are thinking about splitting the 50 multisites in 2 halfs and run another mysqld for that.

One of our main problems is, that deployments with changes to many features could take several hours at the moment.

How to do load testing for a Drupal 7 Web Application with authorized users

There is a Drupal 7 Web Application which provides personal chats, group chats, real-time polls, theater, and other activities for authorized users.

Hence, the Application contains a lot of callbacks from Front End to Back End.
I think it does not matter: They are callbacks to Drupal (https://www.drupal.org/project/js) and callbacks to node.js (https://www.drupal.org/project/nodejs).

How to test it under loading, simulating the presence of a plurality of users?
