Session Overview

Doheny Beach A
Advanced Performance and Scalability

Websites can be victims to their own success when increased popularity causes it to be slow, or unable to handle more page views. Websites can also be victims when users are not careful with what's going on behind the scenes after users log in.

Based on the presentation from last year's DrupalCamp LA and the amount of available material, we are splitting the sessions on Drupal Performance and Scalability into 2 separate sessions. This session will cover strategies, tips, and tricks to boost the front-end performance of your website. For back-end performance, see BTMash's session at

Here are some things that we will touch on and discuss:

  • What are the symptoms to look for?
  • What are the areas you investigate for problems?
  • What tools are available to help you diagnose issues?
  • What are some hints and tips for making your site faster?

While I will come prepared with slides on tips and tricks I have learned over my years of experience, this will also incorporate community discussion so that everyone can share their experiences. Come prepared with hints, tips and findings, as well as questions.
