The Drupal Coffee Club

For anyone not going to Drupalcon in Denver, come down and grab a coffee with us and show us what your working on.

The Coffee Club is an informal gathering for anyone who wants to learn more about Drupal and get in touch with other members of the community. Bring your laptop down and show us what your working on or just sit back with a slice of cake and join the chat.

We hope this will be a great opportunity to have more hands on time with Drupal and for people new to the Drupal community to have the opportunity to chat with other developers and novices alike. There will be a few of us there throughout the evening who will help with any questions and there's no set time or agenda. So come on down anytime between 6:00 and 10.

    Thanks for the APC primer and the pointers on Drupal 7 conversion. Very helpful. Looking forward to testing this morning.

    Drupal Con keynote if you missed it:
    http://www.ostraining.com/blog/live/dries-keynote-from-drupalcon-denver/

    Its highlights:
    - Drupal 8 will be adopting Symfony for large parts of its framework.
    - Drupal needs to improve its content creation experience.
    - Drupal 8 will have Mobile in mind first.

    Hey Jim, I'm about to fire New Relic up on a new project to do some profiling so hopefully I'll be able to give you some info on that Thursday.

    For varnish you can apply rules to allow whatever you need to bypass it so you shouldn't have an issue there.
    I don't think I follow you on the InnoDB conversion. If you have access to your my.cnf file you can set the default storage to InnoDB so all newly created tables, say from a module install, are set. You would add default-storage-engine=InnoDB

    FYI: I am running New Relic and DBVU, but am not sure how to take action, based on what these report. In addition, I have all kinds of differing metrics when it comes to visitor response time across many measurement tools.

    Performance it is :-) Lets look at a number of strategies and also some ways to measure performance and generate workloads for testing.

    It seems that APC is the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to rapid response time, etc. Could you review the top 4 tips? Maybe be Varnish, InnoDB, CDN, and APC. How to get started, ongoing maintenance, and settings?

    Maybe some concerns, for example,
    (a) I have some services that cannot be cached, but I might use a different IP address and have Varnish ignore these.
    (b) After setting up InnoDB, do you need to run a script to convert new tables from MyISAM to InnoDB periodically?
    (c) CDN?

    as a tanget to the APC, I would love to go over other performance metrics and tweaks.

    Anyone have any areas they want to look at this week at the Coffee Club? I have had a couple of people ask about APC and how to set it up and configure it, so we will definitely be looking at how to install / configure and fine tune an APC setup.

    Sounds good :-) Bring your questions and we'll be glad to go over anything you want to look at.
