We have a somewhat complicated site but our blog page is horrendously slow. Typically it takes about 20-30 seconds just for the server to start the response.
It isn't a matter of the assets on the page being large either, it takes that amount of time for the server response to even begin. When I monitor both the web server and the database server, neither really show any huge impact if any (CPU or memory) and networking utilization is normal as well. Additionally, this happens in single request load conditions (late at night) and becomes hugely problematic if we get dozens of requests at a time.
Im Sitefinity 3.7 sp4 on a Server 2008 R2 box under IIS7.5... Database box is SQL 2008 R2. Both are multi core, with at least 3-4G of RAM.
I have page cache turned on in the page properties but that only helps on second request (which is around 3 seconds).
Try it out and see....
I can strip it out of all the other content and just use the bare BLOG post sitefiniity control but that doesn't seem to help at all.
No errors in EventLog or Sitefinity.log
I have modified the Blog page templates, but not hugely in any way as you can see. Our blog has about 334 posts in total of all time, but I have the main page limited to only 3 right now just to see if that helped (it didn't).
does anyone have any ideas? Thank you...
