vB Optimise Lite

The newly revamped vB Optimise was created for vBulletin 4, but has now been made compatible for vBulletin 3.8. In this release I have re-coded vB Optimise from the gound and focused stability over features, you'll notice Phrase Caching and vBAdvanced Integration have bit the dust, this is to maintain a sync state between this version and the vBulletin 4 release.

Professional version & feature list available @ www.DragonByte-Tech.com/forum
Priority support for Lite version is handled at the Developers Website.


What does it do?

vB Optimise is intended to optimise vBulletin software by integrating several PHP "cachers" and handling data before vBulletin. This works by encountering and handling data prior to vBulletin in order to skip the arbitary execution that would be more server intensive.

Real-Life Statistics

We've teamed up with some Big Forums to show you the impact of vB Optimise, you can view this public chart which shows both our statistics and theirs:

View Public vB Optimise Resource Statistics

Features
  • Supported Extensions
    • APC
    • eAccelerator
    • Memcache
    • XCache
    • WinCache
    • Filecache
  • Style Cacher
    Caches style data to globally reduce a query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Template Cacher
    Caches template data to globally reduce a query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Datastore Cacher
    Forces custom datastore items from modifications (including those from vB's blogs) to use your configured Datastore Cache method instead of being forced into the database. This reduces page queries by where affected.
  • vB CMS Template Caching
    (Automatic) Corrects many uncached templates within vB CMS to reduce upto 20+ queries on CMS pages (number varies based on content).
  • Optimal Settings Check
    Provides a quick interface to identify possible settings which can be changed on your forum for further optimisation.
  • Self-System Tester
    Provides a relatively straight-forward system check to ensure your vB Optimise installation works fully.
  • Automatic Cache Flusher
    Automatically flushes cache within the Admin CP based on specific triggers to make sure content does not remain stale on your forum.
  • XCache Authentification
    Supports XCache Admin Authentification by allowing you specify the username/password in a configuration if needs be.

Features - Pro
  • Notices Cacher
    Caches users dismissed notices to reduce a near-global query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Showgroups Cacher
    Caches the showgroups query which becomes more intensive as your user-base grows.
  • Forum Display Query Enhancement
    Enhances a stock vBulletin query within Forum Display to speed up the page.
  • Forum Home WOL Cache
    Caches Forum Home "Who's Online" to remove an intensive query and allow larger sites to display this data without impact.
  • vB Cache Override (Feature not available on vBulletin 3)
    Ability to override vBulletins new built-in database cacher for the CMS / Forum Sidebar Blocks to remove anything from 1 to 20+ queries based on your content.
  • Full Guest Caching
    Ability to cache entire pages and serve them saving not only hundreds of queries but upto 90% of CPU processing towards Guests.
  • Statistical Resource Savings
    Ability to see just exactly how many queries per day vB Optimise has saved your database. You'll be surprised at the numbers.
  • Forum Resource Statistic
    Shows off vB Optimise resource saving statistics directly within forumhome statistics.
  • ....and more!

Release Notes

If you've used vB Optimise before you'll be aware the previous version had phrase caching, however this caused complications with the way phrases are used within vBulletin so it has not been ported over at this time.

FAQ

Q: I have WinCache installed, but vB Optimise tells me it's not?
A: WinCache only introduced OpCode support in version 1.1, if you're using version 1.0.x you will need to upgrade.

Q: I'm using the XCache method, flushing doesn't work?
A: If you have XCache authentification, turn the admin option on within vB Optimise Settings, then edit ./vboptimise/config.php and specify your XCache username/password. Alternatively you can disable XCache authentification within php.ini:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Q: I have eAccelerator installed, but vB Optimise tells me it's not?
A: eAccelerator does not provide the caching extension by default, you will need to recompile PHP with additional flags. For more information read eAccelerator documentation located here: http://eaccelerator.net/wiki/CompileConfiguration (Specifically look at: with-eaccelerator-shared-memory)

So after i install this it it uses an extra 21 queries??? and also makes my pages load slower??
This is just plain wrong.. You don't even explain if it's on the EXACT same page. Seems to me like your website is adding extra queries per post or per thread, (I don't know what script you're taking this info from) and you happen to be comparing different pages.

It's not possible that this mod added 21 queries.

That being said, you really need to hire somebody to fix those query issues and the amount of memory being taken up. I don't quite get how the page you're loading is taking 16MB of memory...

Here's a SHOWTHREAD example:
Page generated in 0.02043104 seconds (73.73% PHP - 26.27% MySQL) with 6 queries 2,085.35KB Used
and FORUMHOME:
Page generated in 0.01459694 seconds (66.00% PHP - 34.00% MySQL) with 5 queries 1,470.00KB Used

I wasn't even quoting your last post, and I didn't even read/see it. I "took the time" to see that both your before AND after results are ridiculous and therefore this mod is most likely not the problem. I would attribute it to a website running poorly coded mods.

I see 8-10 queries on your FORUMHOME, not 33-54. So chances are you should optimize your mods first and try again.

And how are you seeing 8-10 queries??

Yes you have a customized style but there is nothing extra on your forum index to run 33 queries

Edit : Sorry i just realized you are also using vbadvanced cmps. That explains everything

As in: That's all it should be taking to pull this information onto FORUMHOME. Given it is properly coded.

It wasn't an actual observation, but my estimate of what your query count should really be. You should hire someone to optimize your queries, as they are probably destroying your server.

Deceptor, I have switched to xcache and I see much much better performace than filecache. Though I did not flushed the cache, just wanted to know why all is working fine for me without flushing the cache. I do have modifications, template edits etc.

Suggestion:

1. Can the forum titles be cached on index.php to reduce another query to extract all forums everytime.
2. Will the new feature of Forumhome WOL Cache, also cache the Statistics i.e. counts of threads, posts and members.

Thank you

1. I am facing a problem ONLY in 1.1.0 (this did not happened in 1.0.2)

Since enabling xcache, I am unable to edit any templates. Gives me a blank page on template saving.

There is no such problem using Filecache.

2. Another major problem I just found.

All member profiles look like as in attached pic, happens ONLY when viewed as guests. All phrases gone. It is happening only with vboptimise enabled, no matter what the cache type is.

thanks

lol I am glad this is happening not just with me, so its a confirmed bug. Are you able to reproduce the first problem that I stated. Are you able to edit templates with vboptimise 1.1.0 using xcache?

Thanks

I'll get on fixing the bug right away. If you want a temporary fix for the profile issue, disabling phrase cache will resolve the issue.

Also, logicuk, the only possible way this mod adds queries is if it fails to cache the data, if you enable vBulletin debug mode you should see several vB Optimise messages explaining what it's doing, when first caching data it will execute more queries than vB does purely to cache the data, after that the query reduction begins. I'm assuming it keeps trying to cache the content but it's failing, if you're using filecache, ensure ./vboptimise has sufficient perms (read and write, usually chmod 0777).

Deceptor,

I have eAccelerator installed on my server.
When I select this option I get this ...

vB Optimise: You have selected a cache method that vB Optimise has detected you cannot use, this may be because the extension required is either not installed or active on your server
Been using the file system but as it says

Additionally vB Optimise offers the ability to use alternative methods to caching if you have the extensions installed on your server, it is recommended you use one of these instead of File Cache. If you have multiple methods available it is advised you test each method and find the one that works and performs best for you.
I thought I'd try the eAccelerator option.

Thoughts?

I'm getting that phrase behavior when logged out as well. Disabled phrase caching and phrases are back.

Regardless I'm already seeing a performance increase. Nominated
