Performance Tuning within Orchard

by Anton 17. June 2013 15:51

After hearing a little about how to go about increasing the performance of sites build upon Orchard at the Orchard Harvest, I did a quick search in the documentation. Two interesting pages came up:

Regarding Caching, the predominant opinion at the conference was, that one should always turn it on. We will look into SysCache, Memcache and other Modules like Cache.

There was also talk about disabling dynamic compiling, but as of now we use this feature. Maybe we can circumvent our needs.

One project has been demonstrated where Orchard is used as a CMS via the WebAPI of Orchard, but a “normal” MVC-Application is used to display this content. The reason for this was to achieve faster pageloads.

Zoltan (as Piedone on CodePlex) has created a Combinator module to combine and minify stylesheets and javascript files. That could also reduce pageload time.

We will look into these options as soon as our portal sites pick up traffic, and performance should be optimized.
