    I want to know what the largest xenForo forum is with the least amount of add-ons installed.

    Post how many posts / threads / members you have and then how many current add-ons you are using.

    You don't have to give the URL but feel free to do so if you wish.

    It would be nice if people also mention how many DB Queries and time for the forum list and a typical forum page.

    I don't think that Thread_View cache is necessary :p

    Aren't these two add-ons do the same thing? why using both?

    Not exactly.
    Xfrocks addon cache the whole html for the guest and combine the css into a file (save php request) and Xen Cache minimize database query on some pages.

    @Bamstaguy : Really nice forums, hopefully with the next releases some of the addons will be included in the core. Especially for larger boards those would be very welcome. Also more caching options in the core would be great :) And I really like the showcase addon.

    A simple count of addons can be quite misleading. We once had only a single addon and all of our customization was made part of it. Most Big Boards would have in-house development.
