vB Optimise Lite

The newly revamped vB Optimise was created for vBulletin 4, but has now been made compatible for vBulletin 3.8. In this release I have re-coded vB Optimise from the gound and focused stability over features, you'll notice Phrase Caching and vBAdvanced Integration have bit the dust, this is to maintain a sync state between this version and the vBulletin 4 release.

Professional version & feature list available @ www.DragonByte-Tech.com/forum
Priority support for Lite version is handled at the Developers Website.


What does it do?

vB Optimise is intended to optimise vBulletin software by integrating several PHP "cachers" and handling data before vBulletin. This works by encountering and handling data prior to vBulletin in order to skip the arbitary execution that would be more server intensive.

Real-Life Statistics

We've teamed up with some Big Forums to show you the impact of vB Optimise, you can view this public chart which shows both our statistics and theirs:

View Public vB Optimise Resource Statistics

Features
  • Supported Extensions
    • APC
    • eAccelerator
    • Memcache
    • XCache
    • WinCache
    • Filecache
  • Style Cacher
    Caches style data to globally reduce a query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Template Cacher
    Caches template data to globally reduce a query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Datastore Cacher
    Forces custom datastore items from modifications (including those from vB's blogs) to use your configured Datastore Cache method instead of being forced into the database. This reduces page queries by where affected.
  • vB CMS Template Caching
    (Automatic) Corrects many uncached templates within vB CMS to reduce upto 20+ queries on CMS pages (number varies based on content).
  • Optimal Settings Check
    Provides a quick interface to identify possible settings which can be changed on your forum for further optimisation.
  • Self-System Tester
    Provides a relatively straight-forward system check to ensure your vB Optimise installation works fully.
  • Automatic Cache Flusher
    Automatically flushes cache within the Admin CP based on specific triggers to make sure content does not remain stale on your forum.
  • XCache Authentification
    Supports XCache Admin Authentification by allowing you specify the username/password in a configuration if needs be.

Features - Pro
  • Notices Cacher
    Caches users dismissed notices to reduce a near-global query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Showgroups Cacher
    Caches the showgroups query which becomes more intensive as your user-base grows.
  • Forum Display Query Enhancement
    Enhances a stock vBulletin query within Forum Display to speed up the page.
  • Forum Home WOL Cache
    Caches Forum Home "Who's Online" to remove an intensive query and allow larger sites to display this data without impact.
  • vB Cache Override (Feature not available on vBulletin 3)
    Ability to override vBulletins new built-in database cacher for the CMS / Forum Sidebar Blocks to remove anything from 1 to 20+ queries based on your content.
  • Full Guest Caching
    Ability to cache entire pages and serve them saving not only hundreds of queries but upto 90% of CPU processing towards Guests.
  • Statistical Resource Savings
    Ability to see just exactly how many queries per day vB Optimise has saved your database. You'll be surprised at the numbers.
  • Forum Resource Statistic
    Shows off vB Optimise resource saving statistics directly within forumhome statistics.
  • ....and more!

Release Notes

If you've used vB Optimise before you'll be aware the previous version had phrase caching, however this caused complications with the way phrases are used within vBulletin so it has not been ported over at this time.

FAQ

Q: I have WinCache installed, but vB Optimise tells me it's not?
A: WinCache only introduced OpCode support in version 1.1, if you're using version 1.0.x you will need to upgrade.

Q: I'm using the XCache method, flushing doesn't work?
A: If you have XCache authentification, turn the admin option on within vB Optimise Settings, then edit ./vboptimise/config.php and specify your XCache username/password. Alternatively you can disable XCache authentification within php.ini:

Q: I have eAccelerator installed, but vB Optimise tells me it's not?
A: eAccelerator does not provide the caching extension by default, you will need to recompile PHP with additional flags. For more information read eAccelerator documentation located here: http://eaccelerator.net/wiki/CompileConfiguration (Specifically look at: with-eaccelerator-shared-memory)

you can upload the folders itself (the whole thing)

example : include image itself etc etc it won't overwrite the folder it will just UPLOAD the file and not delete nothing

I even turned the ACP cache option OFF but try the following:

Managing notices
Managing styles/templates
Managing plugins
Using ANY modification that uses phrases and custom templates.

And you'll see that you simply won't be able to. But please, since you know so much, enlighten me.
I just did all that and have been doing that fine. But please, continue to be a smartass. It'll get you far.

You will not be able to:

See notices
Save styles or templates
Save plugins, install new plugins, or uninstall plugins
See automated messages from custom modifications (in my experience) but who KNOWS what else is broken when you use custom modifications with this mod.

---
and yet I can

Customer service at vB dot com have even urged people to uninstall this mod, so I can't see why it's still up for MOTM anyway. It causes instability and in some cases completely breaks forums.
Now there's a shocker. vb.com telling someone to uninstall a mod.

I'll stick to my assertion that people are blindly voting this for MOTM, unless you can prove to me that all 133 of them have some inside information that I don't. But I gather it's only because "Optimize" is in the title.

But please, fill me in if there's some magical way you're keeping this modification from breaking your forum. I've looked through the code and it's fantastically coded, but vBulletin just wasn't meant to be caching this information.

Here's a simple test: Write a small plugin that automatically posts to a forum, whenever ______ happens on your board. Have it private message you as well. It's quite easy to code for, but you're going to get BLANK subjects and BLANK messages with this mod. (Make it phrased and templated like most mods).

I can't somehow make it "Flush Cache" everytime it needs to do so on my boards. Since that has been the "Go-to" answer everytime someone has a problem.
and yet I don't!!!!!!!!


As far as I'm concerned, MySQL is everybody's weak spot. I'm not even using Apache, but php-cgi takes up a huge amount of CPU time. It's already doing all the parsing, and serving a huge amount of data through Xcache's opcode cache, and 10x more from the Var cache (datastore), so why on earth would anybody want to try to fit more data through Xcache? I think PHP took up nearly 2x as much CPU time with this mod installed. And with this mod on/off, there was absolutely ZERO change in MySQL throughput.
Oh this is interesting! You can't possibly be getting different results from us since you are using a completely different http server! Gee, if you took a survey of those 133 motm nominations I bet they all run some version of Apache.

Consider yourself filled in!

---

Anyway, I'm just trying to warn people that the word "Optimize" sounds awful nice, but if you already have MySQL optimized you're only harming yourself by installing this. Both in the sense that it breaks most things about your forum while increasing load.

And certainly check all your modifications if you're using this. Most likely at least one of them will no longer work.
and I'm just telling you that lighttpd isn't the standard here and issues you have can very well be related to your use of lighttpd and fast-cgi.

In the future, when you respond to me, lose the attitude. I was simply telling you what I thought it could be and I was in no way being disrespectful to you. I'd expect the same in return.

Sorry but it has also happened to another completely different server using APACHE.. And I'm not using lighttpd.

So how about YOU lose the attitude. I don't see attitude in my OP but I sure see it in yours.

But now that you've brought the 'tude, I'll gladly do the same.

So I certainly don't recommend using a PHP cache or File Caching with this (still parses through PHP) as PHP has a hard enough time running vB on busy boards.

I may try Memcache soon on a live site, though, but it seemed slightly slower in testing. But I think it may bypass the high CPU issue with using PHP accelerators.. And I'd only use it if the ACP could actually start working again, and I wouldn't be receiving the dozen other errors I had from it.

It's kind of sad, actually, that this is being so blindly voted for in MOTM. Most of the voters don't even need it, or know how it works. Whereas I am a programmer myself and administer all my own servers and can see the havoc this wreaked in the limited time I allowed it to run on a live site.
Blindly voted? The goal was to cut down on queries, this does exactly that or it did for my site. How did that cause me to blindly vote for MOTM? The mod did exactly as it promised. Before making accusations about how people vote consider that the mod did as promised on everyone elses site that voted as well.

Uhm i don't know i've been using it for 3 weeks i believe with xcache and it's working smoothly my loads as dropped down half and it loads faster (per what other ppl have told me)
