Joomla makes a lot of request on the database

Post by AntoB » Mon Nov 20, 2017 2:21 pm

Hello everyone,

I have a lot of loads this weekend on my site and it looks like Joomla does not seem to hold up or there is a problem that I can not solve. My site is extremely slow due to joomla which makes a lot of calls on the database. Example: DELETE FROM `j25_session` WHERE` time` <'1511167067'

Is this a problem of Joomla 3.8.2? Is there a way to fix that? The problem only happens during busy times.

This particular query that you mentioned has been there for ages. Nevertheless, it is possible (depending on the version of Joomla that you were using) that Joomla now is issuing more queries.

A possible solution to the problem is to optimize the database for InnoDB (this should be done in /etc/my.cnf ) and make sure that your all tables, and the database itself, use InnoDB. If that fails, you should start optimizing the queries themselves, starting with the non-core queries. - Joomla consulting at its finest - Follow us on Twitter
