Some magento websites load in milli seconds. Mine takes 4 seconds, I have enables cache but still it takes so long. How do these other websites load so quick? I have done all the setting here

You are never going to get Magento to load in milli seconds whatever your hardware setup without using a full page cache solution or Varnish to cache and then serve full page HTML.

  • I have added opcache but still it loads in 4 seconds. I meant server response time. – nikhil carvalho Nov 19 '14 at 18:29

    I'm not talking about an opcode cache, I'm talking about full page cache. This stores the generated full page HTML for each request so the next time a request comes in for the same content the server doesn't have to generate all of the HTML for that page again, it just serves the cached content. This massively boosts performance giving hugely decreased TTFB. – Jonathan Hussey Nov 19 '14 at 18:33
  • can you give me one example of such cache? "a full page cache solution or Varnish to cache and then serve full page HTML." So I need to use Varnish and some thing else? Or only opcache and Varnish? – nikhil carvalho Nov 19 '14 at 18:36
  • You are never going to get Magento to load in milli seconds Of course you can. A standard demo store with sample data and no additional caches (application or server side) will load in <400ms on a category page. You don't need a FPC or Varnish to make a site quick - neither are relevant as far as performance is concerned. Caches reduce resource utilisation for repeated requests on the same content, they do not make anything faster. – Ben Lessani - Sonassi Nov 20 '14 at 0:30
  • Can some one just tell me what caches to use thats all im asking. I have opcache and magento cache installed. what else will "Caches reduce resource utilisation for repeated requests on the same content" – nikhil carvalho Nov 20 '14 at 2:35
