performance and speed?

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

performance and speed?

Postby compojoom » 28. October 2011 11:27

Hey guys,
I'm developing joomla extensions and obviously I have a lot of joomla installations on my localhost. I install a lot of different extensions to test compatibility, etc and I realize the fact that the pages that I have on my localhost are not optimized for speed (no page caching, no db caching, constantly clearing the browser cache...). However I find it really strange that I have to wait between 10-15 secs to get a page. I don't have a state of the art hardware anymore :) - running a win7 64bit on core 2 duo 2Ghz, 4Gb ram + Samsung SSD.

I was wondering if you could share some examples from your installations (joomla, magento, wordpress - anything that has a huge library to load - zend project is also fine)? How fast are your localhost applications loading for you? Maybe I just need to upgrade my hardware...

Cheers,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,
XAMPP is by default setup for low end machines so as to be compatible for most users.

In \xampp\mysql folder there are various degrees of 'performance settings' my.ini files that you can experiment with by renaming and then replacing the default my.ini in the bin folder - you'll get the idea when you peruse the file's contents.

Make backup files as usual and restart MySQL after making any changes.

Zend Optimiser is not available for XAMPP 1.7.7 but I have heard good reports for using eAccelerator.

Good luck. :)

Hey Sharley,
May I ask why you think it is the database? I tried what you suggested, but no matter which configuration the loading times were still extremely slow.

I understand that it must be a problem with my machine, since other developers with nearly the same hardware configurations get load times of 1-2sec...

Simply a process of elimination based on the details you provided in your first post.

Try checking the CPU usage under the Process Tab in the Windows Task Manager when you are running into performance issues.

If there is nothing specifically wrong with your XAMPP installation then there is not much more this support forum can offer in relation to your machine issues.

Good luck with it. :)

I agree that XAMPP is by default setup for low specs PC. Just to share my experience, I'm using XAMPP on an old machine, pentium 4 with only 1 GB RAM without any advance configurations, I am running Drupal, it works fine for me.
