LAMP & Microsoft Stacks | SMX Sydney | David Cropley

Stacks generally serve internet pages. Lets find out how modifying stacks can make sites load faster, it’s all about speed.

Microsoft Stacks

  • The IIS SEO toolkit is a great place to start with people using IIS, it will allow you to get a better understanding of your site from an SEO perspective
  • Use viewstates ( a view state defines a particular view of a component. For example, a product thumbnail could have two view states; a base state with minimal information, and a “rich” state with links for more information or to add the item to a shopping cart) sparingly
  • Postbacks(allow the communication between client side and server side) are not links

Lamp Stack

  • Lamp is like penguins, lots of Harry Potter jokes, I think you have to be in the room to get it.
  • Use GZIP to compress things by around 70%
  • Enable mod_deflate
  • supports log files for benchmarking
  • Use memcached-used by Facebook and Twitter, can be used with MySQL and PHP, it is also scalable.

Databases

  • Use the DB to cache pages that take a lot of processing
  • Cache random operations
  • Look at your conditional clauses for hints on what columns to index
  • Regularly review
  • flush out old data

A little technical but had some great info.
