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:

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)

Hello Deceptor, I tried to set enable all options and I made some screenshot, it seems works, perhaps only "Custom Datastore Cache" doensn't work well because I already use XCache Datastore in config.php, if fact it shows : No custom Datastore items to work with

Sincerely I hope to improving more the speed and reduce the memory usage, but at the moment the values before and after are more similar...It is normal for you?
I also read other member's statistic, and they has more improve than me.

These are others screens, thank you for your help

doraj - The custom datstore items are for mods usually, sometimes other modifications use init_startup to specify custom datastore items, and these are queried instead of using XCache or any other method specified in your config.php. vB Optimise fixes this however by forcing them to use your custom datastore method.

That said, your screens show vB Optimise is working fine. If you disable vB Optimise, you should see that your queries on your forum pages increase by 2, those 2 being styles and templates. As for memory usage/speed, I'm afraid this isn't designed to reduce memory, and impact is insignificant, as for speed, that depends on your connection to the server really. Also check the Optimal Settings, storing CSS as css files will help with speed

But to sum up, it is working, and it is reducing queries I'm sorry you can't "feel" the impact of this browsing your forum, but perhaps you could ask any of your members if they notice a difference

This seems to be messing up my email a bit. When I get new member notifications via email when it is turned on it leaves out the name but when turned off it works. Also leaves some other things blank (or puts a _ in place instead) when turned on. See screen shots

The newest email (in bold) was a test registration I did with it off. The one below it is with it on.

The content of the email is from the one with Optimize on.

Could you elaborate on the importing plugins part hostboard? I've imported many products with vB Optimise enabled and had no issues.

Thanks Deceptor, sorry for not seeing it before posting.

Maybe Hostboard is talking about an issue I have when importing Products or uninstalling products.

When I do this my css doesn't seem to be read and my forumdisplay and showthread pages do not have any css applied to them. I have to flush the cache to get them to come back. I store my CSS in a file if that matters.

I guess that I missed it also as I was about to report it. Not a big deal really as it seems only to affect new user registration notifications. Other emails seem to have the correct format.

Deceptor, thanks for the awesome support that you provide for this product!
