    Which webserver values have biggest impact on website load time?


    on a webserver (apache, mysql, php), which values comes to your mind can have bigges impact on a website load time?

    we talking about webserver which host like 100 websites, mostly a classic wordpress blog.

    I have keep alive turned on. Now i want to do some test playing with various values of apache, php, so if you can give advice on my testing? thx

    what about external links (to images, fonts, etc.) embedded in the html? they cause individual http requests which can really jack w/load time. you also want to stay away from dynamically resizing images, and instead pre-generating appropriately sized thumbnails.

    with mysql, i always try to make sure that i am never repeating any queries in a single page load.

    no exp w/php.

    100 sites on one virtual server? Why not spinup more virtual servers and split the load up.

    There are load generators for apache and mysql you can specify a load run it and monitor what's going on.

    It can vary by site.

    Some Firefox extensions that will help:

    Firebug's "Net" tab will show you an overview of what is taking the longest for a particular page
    HTTPFox will let you get down and dirty with request / responses
    YSlow will score a page against current best performance practices.

    [edit]Apparently there is a version conflict with YSlow at the moment but the bookmarklet works.[/edit]
