RE: 5 Things You … bla bla … PHP Performance

Michael Feichtinger has a new post that responds to a recent performance post that was over on DZone.com (by Gonzalo Ayuso).

I think, this article tells you very basic things that are not so important compared to others… so: I will tell you the things you should really check now … then what you should do and why … and you don’t have to read much.

He breaks it down into six major points (with a little explanation for each):

  • Benchmark using tools, not just microtime
  • Install APC for an easy performance boost
  • Caching is good, but your application should perform well without it too
  • Log all background processes too (start, end, errors, etc)
  • Database indexes are a good thing
  • Load testing is a good thing, but planning for a high load is even better
