eZ started running slow?? Site deadline soon....

Thursday 18 November 2004 6:17:59 pm - 16 replies

My installation of eZ started running verry slow while working on it today.

It seems like it runs in a memory-loop or something, cause the pages just time out...

What could have happened?
What can I do to get this back to normal?

I hope somenone can help me with my problem verry soon, cause I have a verry short deadline on this.
Please help!

Thanx.. =)

Happend to me too.

After creating some 10-15 folders my system (news-siteaccess not admin) simply times out.

Errormessage: Fatal error: eZ publish did not finish its request

The system runs 3.5.0beta1

This happened to me on a ezpublish-3.4.4 installation...

Anyone who solved this problem?

Could you give us a more detailed answer? What OS, PHP version (CGI or mod_php), database engine, hardware (processor speed, RAM) do you use? Did you check debug output? What are your timings? Did you chceck permissions to var directory?

For example, I have next confiruration:
(php is not version 4.3.2, where hard to find working versions to compile on freebsd with php with bg)
Main page is opening tooooo slowly..
I can see, that httpd takes 60%-90% of processor and increasing swap size up to 120mb !!.
On last step (real creating database and other configuration) I have timeout after 600sek.
Server configuration:
Cyrix 233mhz, 48mb, 170mb swap disk.

Installed eZ 3.4.4 version.
What other information I can give to help to developers?

I have several other installations of eZ on this server, with the exact same setup.

The server is super.
I have had technicians chencking it.

It's only this installation who started beeing slow.
Never happened before...

The very first thing to do when there is a problem is turn on debugging

in settings/override/site.ini.append.php


This should give you any errors that are occuring as well as a timing table. The timing table will allow you to pinpoint the areas where the time is being taking up in the page generation.

If you cannot work out what is going on, post the debug output here and I'll have a look.

I have these settings:




But it just want to write out the TemplateSettings debug.....

Is something wrong with that setup?

Yes, I have emptied the cache...

Hi Juri

This is from eZ publish requirements

Required hardware

There are no built-in requirements. The hardware needed to run an eZ publish site 
depends on several factors, such as the average number of users, the size of the 
templates (including graphics), and how caching is used. 
(See the performance notes below.)

The installation requires about 50 MB on your harddisc. 
We do recommend some minimum values; at least 500 MHz CPU and 250 MB of RAM. 

I think that your hardware configuration is not enough.

There is a setting in php.ini

Saturday 20 November 2004 12:11:01 pm

in php.ini ( the ??? are place holders)

; Resource Limits ;

max_execution_time = ???    ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = ???        ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
memory_limit = ??M      ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)

Greetings, ekke
