PRE-CONFERENCE: Moodle Performance Hands-On Tutorial Part1/2

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the last four years, York has invested hardware, tools, and a lot of staff time in improving the performance of our central Moodle infrastructure so that it now routinely supports over 1500 concurrent users.  

This tutorial will lead the attendees through a series of exercises, using their own Windows or Macintosh laptops, that introduce the basics of Moodle performance analysis and tuning.  Exercises will include:
  • use of open source tools to simulate high load
  • adjusting MySQL configuration
  • adjusting Moodle front-end configuration
  • adding caching
There will also be demonstrations of commercial tools that York uses for fine-grained performance tuning.
