This question already has an answer here:
I have all cache enabled, running around 16GBs of memory, 8 core CPU. And yet, the website is still horribly slow. Fetching the products takes around 15 seconds or so! Trying to see what's taking so long, I found that products.html is what's taking so long.
The odd thing is, if I call the -entire- product collection from my own code, it takes around 1-2 seconds. But on the website it's taking well over 15 seconds!
What might be causing this slow down? And how can I solve the issue?
