Best practice ways to improve admin performance

Best practice ways to improve admin performance

Wednesday 25 June 2014 10:37:18 am - 1 reply


I was wondering which methods are considered to be best practice for improving the performance of the admin interface. We usually use Varnish for the frontend which works like a charm, but I would expect to run into all kinds of problems using it for the admin interface (allthough I am not sure, and we have not tried). 

How are others going about improving the admin performance?

The things i learned are the following:

  1. limit the number of nodes contained by a parent-node
  2. adjust the dashboard to do not display all blocks (community, drafts, latest content, my latest content)
    On a system with a node containing about 2 million childrens, the view of this node takes 1 minute to load (without cache)

With keeping this in mind, i reached a response-time of 500ms.
The ajax-request though take a little longer than this.

Limit the classes displayed in the content-tree-menu.
You may also switch to nginx to improve the ajax-request.

Keep in mind, that content is always expensive to load (especially on an uncache page).

To mention your thought about varnish for the backend, I tried it once and got a load of problems comming with it.

Tell me if you find some other ways to improve performance or if the information i supplied are helping you.
