    Question regarding the performance and the phpBB.

    eyeonall Newbie

      I currently run a site off a postnuke fork called Envolution. Unfortunately, the site is getting around 350k page views a month and the cms generates 120 queries to the db to render the front page alone :( . Just isnt doing it for us anymore.

      I was wondering if that kind of load has been put on this CMS. I have worked with Jboss and Websphere apps that can handle the load, but I havent taken a good look a this app's code and wanted to know if I should.

      Also, why did you port the phpBB? Would it not have been easier to port something like the mvnForum which is already written in java and supported by the java community. As far as I can tell, jboss may be the only group really supporting the java phpBB.

      Finally, is the Calendar code available? There are no Calendars that do what we need and I would like to see what the basic functionality and extensibility is of yours.

      Thanks in advance and great work.

          I think that nukes can handle a pretty good load but I have no idea. It can handle far more than Postnuke or PHPBB can.

          All JBoss can handle, Nukes can handle it as well, in a non clustered environment. In the near future we will enabled Nukes to run on a cluster as well.

          1. PHPBB is in our eyes the best forum available.
          2. Eat out own dog food.
          3. MVN lacked of feature some feature when we started, no cache support.
          4. PHPBB structure was easy to integrate.
