Suppose I have a Magento installation organized like this:

-> `website` W
-->`store`   S
---> `store view` A
---> `store view` B

... and I decide to add 50 more Store View to the Store S

  • How much this change is going to impact on the performance ?
  • What I should take care of ?

I'm trying to summarize all the shared points:

  • More Product Flat tables -> re-index slower / more HD space
  • Bigger Product Attribute tables -> some query slower / more HD space
  • More cache records -> slower cache / more HD space
  • possible impact on price index ( if websites number is increased too )

As Amit already said, you have maybe to fight performance issues.

When we talked to Magentos Enterprise Consulting Group, they said, when we plan to create 20 or 30 or even more stores, we should think about faking this.

Like building a category or something alike.

I think the biggest problem is the price index, which is:

#customer group * #website * #tax classes * #products

See the website, not store view!

  • Sorry I don't go you: what you mean see website, not store view ?

  • The problem with the price index only is one, when you create a lot of websites for your store views. Oct 3, 2015 at 19:23
  • so if I have one website/store with many storeview should be fine ?

Yes,you can create 50store. But it will create very bad effect on site speeds.

Create issue In

  • Index management
  • Mysql Query will increase .
