We have been using umbraco for a long time now, and we have some old sites, new sites, and everything in between,
I have started looking into a collection of niggles clients have been having, and the performance of the back office has come up as a common theme, particularly on sites which have more content. (indicated by umbraco.config filesize)
Some info about the sites in question:
version:22.214.171.124 umbraco.config: 42MB Dedicated authoring server
version:4.11.8 umbraco.config: 20MB Dedicated authoring server EC2 m1.large
version:6.1.6 umbraco.config: 23MB Auth & web on one Server
It would seem from this range of versions that upgrading umbraco will yield few benefits without going to 7, even then I'm not sure?
What would be awesome, if there were benchmarks of each version of umbraco, especially benchmarking when data sizes get bigger than these.
My next steps would be to get some measurements together, perhaps give new relic a try, so any recommendations on the best way to go about this would also be appreciated.
We run v7 with dedicated author/web environments, umbraco.config is a tidy 100mb (db around 9.5gb).
Backoffice runs fine. Sometimes it might slow a little, but very rarely do we have complaints (we have 140+ users editing/creating content).
I'd be looking to move to v7 from a client-services POV - it's a much more pleasant working environment.
I really love this site: http://ubenchmarks.com/ which benchmarks the content-API's in the different versions. A quick look at the graph shows that upgrading really improves this performance.
It doesn't look at the size of the umbraco.config but I don't think that will change much between the versions.
Nice to know.
Agreed the size shouldn't change when upgrading.
But, the size of the content can make a big difference to performance, loading more than creating content I guess, and I'm guessing some versions can handle a lot of data better than other versions.
Awesome link by the way. :-)
Along with the perf graph at uBenchmarks.com it would be good to know which API version (old or new) the back office uses in each version of umbraco?
is it always the 'new' were it's available?
