bbPress speed (plugin not scalable?)
I am having a number of issues with slow posting times. Posts are taking up to 30 seconds to submit in many cases.
I spoke to my webhost who offered the following details:
We have reviewed your case in details. As you probably know the BBPress plugin saves each forum new topic or post to a topic as a new post in the WordPress database. Due to this reason your WordPress’ posts database table and its meta data is getting quite big.
I believe that the main reason for your slow performance is the size of the _posts and _postmeta database tables.
Decreasing their size will speed your website up.
I did actually try the fix suggested at the end of this forum topic by editing the functions.php file.
This way I have managed to post a test topic for about 12 seconds instead of the previous 30-35 seconds time frame.
My forum contains 500,000+ posts, so I accept that the database will be getting large. Is there nothing that can be done to improve the awful performance I am seeing until the much rumored bbPress 2.6 is released?
