Site take long to publish or removed content(ez 4.4)

Site take long to publish or removed content(ez 4.4)

Friday 05 October 2012 4:27:17 am - 6 replies


We have multiple sites running on single instance of eZ, when ever we try to edit/remove any site content in both front and admin interface, Site take very long to finish the process and often timesout.

I have already went through ez developer forums for solution, I have tried couple of soluiotn I found with no luck.

Information about my eZ settings:

  • Using delayed index option in site.ini
  • No error in eZ error logs
  • DB server seem to be running fine, no performance hit in that server
  • Web server has more than enough resource
  • There is no custom edit handler

Any suggestion would be helpfull.

Thank you

We do not have any workflow for the site.

Thank You

If not yet done, then you could enable slow query logging on your MySQL server, this might help. Let us know what results you get.

Another couple of areas to check (I've had similar problems in the past):

Are you using the ezfind extension? Updating the index and optimizing can take quite a long time if you have a less-than-ideal configuration.

What kind of filesystem is on your server? I've seen some where I/O is poor, and it's actually clearing and re-building cache files that takes a long time.

if you look at kernel/operation_definition.php you can see the steps that combine to make the 'publish' action - try commenting some out and see if you can work out which step is causing you grief.

Thanks Guys,

Finally found the solution for the problem, The issue seem to the filesystem, we were using the DFS cluster, so the I/O on DFS was take very long. So let the sys admin. 


Thanks to every one for helping me.

Btw, using the ezperformancelogger extension would probably have helped you in troubleshooting the problem, as it can trace the time spent by eZ on db queries, cluster-db queries and cluster-nfs-io.

As starting point for learning how to use the extension, you can use the slides from the seummercamp (

If anyone is interested, I could write a specific tutorial for this particular troubleshooting case
