Support » Plugin: Top 10 - Popular posts plugin for WordPress » perfomance problem with 1000000 page views

  • Resolved uradvd


    The other day on my two sites http flood attack was not much more for 3 days has been generated about 1,000,000 page views. Sites themselves are well optimized with nginx cache and wp total cache. The problems were more with the top 10 plug it dynamically finds all the posts constantly pulls php and mysql. Suggest a serious look in the direction of increasing productivity plugin. There are a few ideas.
    1. Use the object cache for counters such as at a certain time is down in the settings
    2. Use admin-ajax.php to query mysql instead of a separate file

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I’ve got the admin-ajax.php option on a priority because of the load issue which I have optimised over the past few versions.

    I need to study the use of object cache for counters. I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “at a certain time is down in the settings”. Could you please clarify what exactly you have in mind?

    I meant to use the settings in the admin panel to manage the time of clearing the cache

    Sounds good. Let me see what I can do.

    I haven’t used this below, but based on what I read:

    The most common use for the object cache is caching the results of expensive SQL queries so they’re not performed multiple times within a page load. In the below example, imagine the $query variable is an expensive SQL query.

    Wouldn’t this end up not recording subsequent hits?

    You can only cache the widget itself when output in the object cache and counter itself. A counter that counts not only will look for ways to optimize
