Performance Recommendations

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

  • Use Redis cache backend
  • Enable the full-page cache in Settings > System.
  • Install and setup Varnish cache and make use of ESI (Pimcore sends the right headers for Varnish if full-page cache is enabled).
  • Only use sessions when really necessary. The Pimcore full-page cache detects the usage of sessions in the code and disables itself if necessary.
  • Tuning your database configuration to exactly fit the needs of your application.
  • Make use of in-template caching.
