Performance enhancements

15/05/2007

Some of heavy users might have noticed that it takes longer and longer for the site to respond. Not that it was slow, but not as fast as it used to be. Not any more!

The reason for the gradual slowdown is the enormous size of your cache on the server. The system tried to remember all your text input and uploaded photos from day one.

Now there is a limit on what it remembers:

– 1000 input fields
– 300 files

The limit does not mean that you can have less templates, catalogues or users. It applied purely to how well it can pre-populate fields in test-orders for you.

This is a quite generous allowance that exceeds the size of the average cache. Only old unused data is likely to be affected.

This change does not affect any of your customers – their caches are tiny compared to yours.
