Joomla vs. Non-Joomla site <yikes>
Hey there,

So we are cutting over an old outdated website to Joomla. Demo site is up and running but the performance results and my testers are complaining of very poor response time. I am seeing the same thing from both the site front and back ends.

Both the current production site, and the new Joomla-based site are physically resident on the same server using the same hosting site -- they are actually in the same directory with different DNS pointers so the server performance will be the same between the two sites.

On the Joomla site I have enabled the following caching/performance:

RocketTheme template: Gantry Cache On, Gantry GZipper On
JotCache: Browser caching yes (5 mins), Compress Cached content yes
RokGZipper: Enabled

Here are two different tests. First is a side by side comparison between the old site and the new site. Old site takes approximately 3 seconds to load completely -- new site takes 15 seconds Sad

Here is the detailed breakdown of the new site -- 10 tests run.

Same breakdown for the old site -- 10 test runs.

I'm getting some poor grades for Text and Image compression, however the amount of data available to be compressed is quite small.

Obviously there is a size difference between the two front pages. Old site is quite small at 263kb, with the new site at 1237kb due to the addition of some images. I don't consider the new site particularly large or complicated in terms of the data it's serving up.

Any thoughts here? Is this a host problem given that even the back end of the site is extremely slow to respond?
