&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&


my test board (4.1.4) : http://www.mysite.com/test (Using exactly same database from 3.4.8 upgrade)

Applications running under this one
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
System 4.1.4  Locked
Forums 4.1.4  Açık   
Blog 4.1.4  Açık   
Gallery 4.1.4  Açık   
Videos 3.1.7  Açık   
Calendar 4.1.4  Açık   
Birthday Greeter 1.4.1

NO PLUGIN YET

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

And the result is (left is 3.4.8 - right is 4.1.4)

Let's clear something up: I had run this test 20 times and this is what I got thru 4 days testing...

3.4.8 has tons of applications and hooks still running faster than 4.1.4 (I like 4.1.4) 4..1.4 has issues when it comes to speed...

I am using this website to test: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

As you see they are on the same server

http://www.mysite.com/3.4.8 Your website faster than 61%

http://www.mysite.com/4.1.4 Your website faster than 56%

They are using same server, same database, same php, same, same, same

And server info:

Total processors: 16 - Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650 0 @ 2.00GHz

32 MB Ram

512 SSD and so on...

I think 4.1.x is not slower than 3.4.x (except for the new "unread" content which is awful and quickly needs a fix). It features big speed improvements. These are the results for a 4.1.3 board of mine:

As you see my 3.4.8 has tons of hooks and ads on it but still as fast as 4.1.4.1...

Keep in mind: They are on the same sever using same resources e.t.c....

On 3.4.8 request number is high because of  this hook by DDK33) Board Index Face  v2.0.5...

I see no reason why 4.1.4.1 should run slower. Are you using apache? Have you optimized .htaccess and cache directives? Are you using opcache and memcached? They make a big difference.

Then common sense always helps: keep it trim, simple and efficient:

  • Do not overload your first page, as it is the "face" of the forum. 
  • Use a skin based only in custom CSS and not francy things that slow down your site.
  • Keep your DOM numbers as low as possible.
  • Use font awesome icons instead of images as much as possible
  • Use a good enough server

Well, 3.4.8 is heavily loaded... 4.1.4.1 does not have anything on it... Server is powerful... I am not using any caching on 4.1.4.1 yet (in the feature I will)

btw, thank you for the suggestions...

Now that sucuri support http/2 I have run another test on my main site (sucuri's caching option is turned off):

Running php 5.6.16, will post another when I install php7 tomorrow or so after they announce the GA.

You guys have to give us your board size otherwise these tests do not mean anything.... :)

It's rather a small site, 25k members and 41k posts.
I'd like to test on bigger sites but I do not own bigger sites.

Thank you for the info.

Also would be very useful if you give us info abou any plugin or apps on the site :)
