I am wondering what tuning and configuration do you do to make your environment faster?
Here is my experience:
- Got more memory utilization from installing PAE on 32 bit Linux.
- Installed APC, tuned MySQL and got about 50-100% performance boost. See my blog post for more details: http://vmirgorod.name/blog/boosted-lamp-drupal-devs
- Realized that new NetBeans 7.1.2 is working much faster then Komodo IDE, Zend Studio or Eclipse. People says that 7.2 RC are even more faster. Checkout here http://www.netbeans.com/downloads/index.html
It works almost good, though I want to have more gain form my 2 core and 4 GB laptop. I am thinking about using SSD instead of HDD and seeking for compatible replacement for MySQL. Can you share something about it?
