Site performance improvement

Hi,

I have a question, on how to further improve the site. I attached the
profiler of the site.

Currently, It take about 1.8 seconds to load.

At first I have question on

  1. “Mysql#get_length” which take the longest to run. What this means? is
    the query time to get data from database? or the time to process data
    from database?

  2. “Integer#times” => what this one mean

Thank you in advance,
Beta

It’s the times method on Integer. 3.times { puts “Ho”} will output
Ho
Ho
Ho
Do you have the native mysql gem installed? it looks like you’re not;
that will hurt you.

Excellent idea. Now the speed improve from 2 second to .5 seconds.

My next step is to even optimize it. This time, I don’t have slowdown in
mysql access anymore

I’d guess that you’re eager-loading multiple associations. I’d cut
back on those a bit - eager loading is handy but it can sometimes hurt
more than it helps (especially multiple has_manys - you end up getting
a full cartesian product back from the db that rails has to chomp
through).

Yap. You are right again. I am eager loading the multiple associations
and did not put the “unless read_fragment”.

unless read_fragment(“views-layout-site”)
@main_articles = Article.find(:all, :include => [:asset, :vote],
:conditions=>“assets.parent_id is null”,
:order=>“stat_final_ranking desc”, :limit=>20)
end

I am still reading some tips from
http://darwinweb.net/articles/66-optimizing_and_simplifying_limited_eager_loading_in_activerecord

now I am happy. :)…

It’s able to handle 16 request per seconds.
