Cache Miss

August 09, 2008 —

I posted on the 5th about how the travel page now shows all my travels. Well, I also mentioned that the page loads really slow. I'm happy to say that I greatly improved the processing bottleneck that existed. I implemented caching which has sped things up considerably. Previously, the travel page took ~7 seconds. The average time from start to finish of script execution on the page was 7.223 seconds, which is crazy long. I even saw execution times over 10 seconds! After turning on caching, I'm now seeing times from .572 to .7 seconds. This is a 10x improvement, and I know I can do even better, especially since this was a quick first pass at improving the page rendering time. Hopefully visitors to the travel pages will no longer notice that it is my side being slow, rather it'll be the javascript and google maps servers that are slowing down the page load.
