Help me please understand, why my store is working slowly on Magento 2.1.1. Ubuntu x64, DO 16cpu, 48Gb ram, ssd. We use nginx, php-fpm 7.0, varnish 4, mysql 5.6.

This is very strange situation for me because i have another magento 2 store with 8 cpu with same env, and it work well. We got about 3000 products id DB.

Slowness of product and category depends on few elements:

  • 1.`Check Catagory and product flat setting enable at admin.it should be enable.
  • 2.Check how many attributes enable Show In product listing. it make less.
  • 3.Third party extensions quality.it most case, i have seen that 3rd pary extension is make site speed slow.
  • 4.Indexing issue,Check your Index management is working perfectly.

  • Tell me please. We got 100k of products, and main problem is that products open very slow, also in admin panel create or delete products and categories also very slow, and sometimes even got 503 error from varnish. we got 16 cpu \ 48 ram server for this. there is about 50 clients.
