    Hello - Our Sitefinity website has been suffering from heavy slowdown and maxed CPU issues. Others are investigating the various possible problems. One possibility was offered up that I wanted to put forward to this community, who may have more experience with what seems to be a common circumstance. It was suggested that because our template is the base for a large number of pages, when we make a change to it, the cache is "invalidated" and requires that every page be rebuilt when visited. This means that as people browse the website immediately after a template update, the server will choke. Is this a valid issue? I would think that steps would be taken in developing the product that would allow for a template updates to be handled in a more resilient manner. Are there ways to avoid this aside from doing all of our edits in a dev environment and then publishing the whole thing to the live server nightly?

    Dear Jerod

    While I can not answer your question it would be good to know what version you are using 5.0 or older. 

    I assume that change to templates are not done on a daily basis so the problem you described might not get the highest priority.

    Yes, it's 5.0. We don't edit templates daily, but due to the structure of our website there are many templates, some of which are edited as often as once a week. I know that others are investigating the root of the issue, which is fairly severe. I just wondered if editing a template, or even a page, in a standard sitefinity installation during traffic hours can be expected to noticeably slow down the website. I am not so much looking for a specific cause, but more guidance in workflow and a feeling for what to expect. We are in the phase that we are developing our internal processes in regard to Sitefinity and content publishing.

    All pages on my own site derive from a base template (there are multiples at higher levels) and curiously, I tend to have the opposite issue. I often find that if I edit the base template I have to co-erce the server to recognise the changes, often resorting to shutting shown the application and/or touching the config.web.
