ProjectWeb Extremely Slow

Reported by: mosullivan8 Owned by: ctsai
Keywords: PEND Cc:
Private: no


Since its creation a couple of days ago, my project web site for the project "khajyrim" has been incredibly slow. I am not entirely certain if this is a mis-configuration on my part, but it appears to be on the server end.

Requests often time out, and I often receive partial file loads (no style or images) or 503 errors.

I grant you permission to increase your php memory limit to see if that helps.

Increasing the memory helped, but I've pinned down the primary issue to the recent versions of mediawiki. (I'm not using the sf pre-installed app because I desired the semantic plugin.)

Specifically, the new "resource loader" in 1.17+ is ironically named - it absolutely destroys varnish and slows the loading of js files to ~30 secs on sourceforge.

Downgrading to 1.16 seems to have fixed all performance issues. I consider the issue resolved. Thanks!
