Magento performance, research and improvement

Posted on April 19th, 2011 | Posted by admin

I made a small research regarding  Magento performance. Perhaps, you already know it, but I would like to share this with other people who probably haven’t heard about this problem.

Do you know how many HTTP requests does standard Magento  with default template make?  I have tested Magento and I’ve got very interesting info, 111 HTTP requests! I think it’s too much especially if you add a lot of new pictures, which you will use in your adjusted template. Then  the number of http requests can increase to 150! Every element requires an extra http request. Perhaps, not when the cache is full, but definitely when the cache is empty.

Improving Magento Speed & Performance With MySQL Query Cache

Improving Magento performance is at the top of the list for most professional Magento developers. There’s no doubt that enhancing the speed at which Magento performs can only be good for business.

One of the most important enhancements you can make to your Magento installation is to properly configure your MySQL database server.

A proper MySQL configuration requires a low level understanding of your underlying hardware and, primarily, the memory (RAM) available.

There is one specific MySQL configuration parameter above all others that will produce significant performance improvements and takes very little understanding to implement.
