Beta 4.0 performs a tad slower than 3.4.x. But we have done fine tuning for our 3.4.x but not 4.0, we are in the process of doing that with the beta builds. We chose to not bother with any earlier builds because it would be pointless. We are running a dedicated server in the rack here, which will be much faster than your VPS, so no thanks. Performance tests are with stats via New Relic. We are in the process of fine tuning for IPS 4.0, and results are encouraging. Id suspect it will get better with final builds. The point of this topic was to have some discussion about this site, not mine, my site is not of concern (yet).
After what the staff have been raving about for months, I think I have every right to question something that seems to contradict what they have been saying, don't you? Why is it too early, staff have been working on this for months, and I am just making an observation, should I just not say anything if I see bad performance on software I am going to purchase? The point of this topic was to at least get and intelligent discussion from the staff who are working with the software, and not have to put up with the simple comments about "it's too early" or "give it time it is still beta" - I mean it is very clear to me it is beta software, I have been watching the making of it too. Now on to some intelligent discussion........... Great to hear that you have found some issues and have had the chance to sort it out, this is very encouraging indeed. I know that you are all working very hard, and I know that when the software is released it will be brilliant. I do have faith that you guys are working very hard in making this software as efficient as possible, and from what you have just said, proves that to be the case. Go on, press it, you know you want too Unfortunately Marc_S you have not added much to this discussion. Yeah not so much. General load time of the main site (cleared cache, hence the DNS look-up time):
And general load time of this topic, seems that the processing time has improved, so your tweaks are noted:
But I am trusting that it will improve further over time as you suggest. I have much trust in that this site will improve in speed, it is clear now that you are aware of performance issues and are working hard to remedy that, and this (for me at least) is very encouraging indeed. P.S: I am confident in this software so much, that I have purchased (this week) Pages for the first time, because I think I may have use for it. Now it seems to be user friendly.
I don't know, but you guys (official IPS employees) keep on stating that IPS 4.0 is the fastest version of your software yet, I am not convinced. This is what it took to load the site today (8.8 seconds):
This is how long it took to login (17.5 seconds):
Now I am in Australia, and it never takes this long to load the site, it is usually only around 2 seconds to load, and about 3 to login. My own beta site is slower than my 3.4.x version. I am yet to be convinced. Seems I am not the only one seeing this:
