I run a fairly trafficked store with 30 stores and 20 websites. It works fine when things are cached, but without the config cache enabled, the site is extremely slow.
This means that when I deploy things, the web server gets completely overloaded until the cache has been saved and i over and over again restart PHP-FPM. It just an epic DOS beating me to death that also brings me clients with baseball bats every day, who also want to beat me to death.
How do you all handle high trafficked stores with so many stores + websites (typical global store)? I don't want the solution to be "add more hardware", especially not since media is so hard to scale
