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.
I'm looking for a Linux Sys Admin expert to help with a review and security audit of a Ubuntu 14.04 server. Ideally you are an expert in Linux / LAMP servers, very comfortable with configuring & maintaining a variety of Apache/Nginx / mysql, etc servers.
This is a short term hourly contract opportunity but with very significant potential upside for the right person.
Ottawa based is ideal but not critical.
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.
Drupal.org migrates to Fastly's real-time CDN; Hear all about it this Thursday at the Drupal 8 Release Party: Los Angeles
Just in time for the expected increase in traffic to coincide with the release of Drupal 8, all the content and files on Drupal.org have been migrated to Fastly!
Joshua Mitchell (joshuami), CTO of the Drupal Association, just posted this great writeup a few days ago:
We are so stoked to announce our partnership with Fastly. Fastly is now serving up all of our traffic from the *.drupal.org domain Drupal sites and related services.
Fastly will be at the Drupal 8 Release Party: Los Angeles this Thursday to demonstrate their real-time CDN, how to integrate it with Drupal (both Drupal 7 & Drupal 8 are supported), and to answer any of your questions.
Their presentation will be streamed via Zoom. Please be sure to have Zoom installed and stay tuned to @GLADrupal on Twitter for the video conferencing information.Read more
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.Read more
TLDR: How to take the browsers start render time to sub second levels on a mobile connection; 3.5s -> 0.9s
I've started collecting resources on Drupal performance in a "Big / Badass List"-style Github repo:
Mainly it addresses the lack of a performance factoid on the #drupal IRC channel. If anybody has any suggestions for good articles or blogs on Drupal performance, please let me know, or even make a pull request!
Also, I'd love to filter the Drupal Planet feed to posts on the topic of performance - if anybody has ideas on how to do this, please let me know.
While working on a large site a coworker discovered that there was a problem with the Memcache module's cache clearing and time-based expiration & invalidation.
