Performance Recommendations

For high traffic websites, we recommend the following software and configurations:

  • Use a high performance cache backend for Pimcore (Redis is recommended).
  • Enable the output-cache in Settings > System.
  • Install and setup varnish cache (Pimcore sends already the right headers for varnish => ouput-cache lifetime, ... ).
  • Only use sessions when really necessary. The Pimcore Output-Cache detects the usage of sessions in the code and disables itself if necessary.
  • Tuning your MySQL configuration to exactly fit the needs of your application.
  • Make use of in-template caching.
