We have around 2000 forums in our forum and this make problems. It seems to be XenForo is unlike vB not optimized for large forums.
Have both forums tested locally - the vB version (without addons) and XenForo (without addons) each with standard style (ok, with one modification in XenForo see below).
Affects Forum Home:
vB 3.8 = 0.24201 seconds and 16,791kb
XF 1.4.10 = 1.1892 seconds and 25,949kb
And it is not the queries that are so lame: 0.1317s for queries
As you can see, XenForo can not handle Optimal with this amount. And due to the above access numbers of the users this is more than unacceptable.
Just so we're clear, these are the values without subforums! Which have already been in the class XenForo_ControllerPublic_Forum recessed,
in the of:
'nodeList' => $this->_getNodeModel()->getNodeDataForListDisplay(false, 0),
'nodeList' => $this->_getNodeModel()->getNodeDataForListDisplay(false, 2),
Otherwise it look even worse!
In addition, the subnodes were removed from the template. Because with subnodes, the time in 2.9087 seconds! ABSOLUTE **** !!!! (Sorry)
I hope that here XenForo quickly optimized!
Because the problems are like a red path through the system. So that's creating new forums one thing that also likes to go in the pants.
And now please do not say things like - away forums or so. It even come still more to the page!
