Open Atrium 2 - Scaling & Performance

sexy-trousers's picture

I'm just starting to investigate OA and I was wondering how it scales with large numbers of spaces, sections, groups, teams etc. Will OA perform ok with 10k spaces? How about 100k spaces? I know I can always throw hardware at any problem, but there is generally a recommended limit for these things - how far has OA been pushed and handled the load?

Thanks, TJ


OA 2 Scaling & Performance

Hey TJ!

Great question! We've tried it with about 1,000 spaces with one of our clients, but have not yet worked on a project that requires more. Generally, the performance does not have anything to do with the number of spaces, so it should be fine as long as you're running a database server that can handle that much content.

As we move into the Beta cycle, we'll be doing more performance tuning and will be able to give you a better idea from our experiences. However, you're more than welcome to help out by testing it yourself and letting us know how it goes =) In general, OA2 is not anything special compared to normal Drupal with the Organic Groups module from a performance point.

Hope that helps!

How to speed up OA2

I am running a very small site with a very small number of users so far (less than 10) on a dedicated 4 kernel server, but OA is slow (about 4-6 second if I change to another space )
I installed redis and entitycache without a huge perfomance gain.
APC: 99.7 % hitrate
redis: 82.5 % hitrate
Any recommendations what I should test now?


For me also, loads, very

For me also, loads, very slows, and its not even online yet

This is really...

...a big problem when it comes to user compliance. we should collect information at one place - maybe oa documentation?
