Linux Performance Tuning
With any production server, there's always a bottleneck, slowing everything else down. It may be a poorly designed database, lack of some resource: memory for example, poor software design, or just not enough grunt. We have the skills to monitor and identify these problems, and either recommend or implement solutions to improve the performance of your production platform.
It's a never-ending battle though, as once you've fixed one bottleneck, another part of the system will be slowing you down. However, once performance is at acceptable levels, monitoring of your systems will keep track of this.
Here at Green Gecko, we always believe in eating out own dogfood. This drupal site is now running using the latest nginx web server with ngx_pagespeed built in, against a HipHop Virtual machine backend via fastcgi.
Even though the server is running in Sydney these days ( it's just too expensive to run them here in New Zealand any more I'm afraid ), test results ( as a pretty standard user in New Zealand ) aren't that bad... http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140928_Q4_3SH/
We're also testing this out ( without ngx_pagespeed, as it can make site maintenance a bit cumbersome for the end user ) for an install of the latest Magento 1.9 demo site - http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140928_MR_3GG/ isn't too bad either.
If you'd like us to wave our magic on your website ( most popular CMSes and all linux distros supported ), we offer a 'no cure no pay' service. Just get in touch...
