Crazy TTFB, I need help!

RE: Crazy TTFB, I need help!
In a perfect world - that's one where every process has a surfeit of RAM to cache out of, the ultimate bottleneck for a magento site is plain CPU power.

However, to time it up for this, you really need to be able to configure your own server, which means at least a VPS to see and change what is going on.

For Magento sites,
- ensure multiple CPUs ( virtual or not ) are available
- Beef up the innodb caches for magento, so everything databasey is served from memory ( and probably query cache, but remember a) it doesn't support prepared queries, and b) it's single threaded so suck it and see),
- run php in fpm mode with APC opcode caching ( I find this is so much simpler to do using nginx rather than fooling apache into accepting it but if you decide on sticking with apache then eaccelerator may well work better ),
- investigate different caching and session storage backends ( look at Colin Mollenhour's work )
- for CE, look at fpc options ( eg Listi_fpc and ezzoom )

with these, good results can be had from this leviathan of a product on even modest hardware...
like my demo site... ( note running wpt flat out to make the site look as good as possible, and - as mentioned in a separate thread - the link to PayPal has been removed! ).

The alternative is to use Magento - specific hosting and see how they stack up.
