Hi, I wish to use this blog to raise some performance issues that you, our customers, may face during your work with the portal.
My plan is to start with the basics and continue to common issues that may be pain points, emphasizing on analysis of end user scenarios. Some of you may read my posts and say “oh, that’s trivial”, but others may be amazed by the effect it has on your server’s performance. I hope, in time, it will be beneficial to you and you will use this to both optimize your system as well as to understand the “behind the scenes” of the different components.
To make it work better for you I will appreciate your involvement. So, share your knowledge, ask questions, comment and suggest new topics. After all, I’m doing it for you so let me know if it helps you or should I change direction. Please…
One last comment – performance is usually a compromise, trying to get the right balance between several different options. There are many variants and the most important is your user’s scenario, there is no “one size fits all”, so take it under consideration. Read, learn and tune but always remember – there is no replacement for a good common sense!
So, off we go!
