We have a stand alone windows 2008 R2 clean install server (3GHz CPU with 4G RAM), running Sitefinity v5 - in testing we have created a simple page with images only and no templates. When viewing this page by just a few users we see the CPU spike and often hit 100% - The images are not large. Interestingly, a page with text only and no images does not spike the CPU.
Been working with Sitefinity support, but they are unable to produce the high CPU. We have now spent many many hours and installed the Sitefinity on 6 different servers with the same result. Even using the sample Sitefinity sites provided the CPU still spikes for a single user!!
We are in the situation where we can NOT launch our site as we get 1000's of users per day and are unable to determine why the CPU peaks. Any ideas?
Our solution at this point is to just use sitefinity as an editor for marketing and then use http://www.httrack.com/
to export the site to flat HTML. This is NOT ideal!
This way the engine of Sitefinity will not effect our production web servers CPU. However we will lose some functionality and will have to build some custom ASP>NET apps to externally link to.
Has anyone had experience in building such a solution, ie exporting to flat html files?
