Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 RC1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Idea Kunena 1.x Performance Overview

11 years 6 months ago - 11 years 6 months ago #1 by fxstein

There have been questions about current levels of performance of Kunena 1.0.x and 1.5.x on a view sites.

Let me start off with saying that we have not even scratched the surface of what can be done to make it run ultra fast. One of our personal sites is running a next generation data model implementation that will come out after the current releases 1.0.9 and 1.5.0a.

Haveing said that I would like to share a use case with the community to help in sizing for various workloads. Every use case will be slightly different but this will give you a good idea how a site with significant traffic (>1M page view per month) will perform on Joomla and Kunena.

For this overview I am providing usage details about two site that are currently hosted on a single server, together with their email, spam protection, firewall and various other packages.

The first site is www.kunena.com

With about 850k page view per month it runs Joomla 1.5.x and JoomSocial. It has quickly become a fairly large and active site.

That translates to about 30k page views per day.

The second site on the shared server is www.starVmax.com

With about 1.3M page views per month and up to 350 posts a day it is also a medium sized forum. It runs on Joomla 1.0.x and Community Builder and leverages sh404SEF on all non forum pages.

As of beginning of March we finished the conversion of both site to Kunena 1.0.8 (now the latest builds of 1.0.9). As you can see in the utilization chart the server is on average 15% busy for both sites combined as massive drop from before when www.starVmax.com was running FB 1.0.5 with sh404SEF.

Together both sites represent about 2M page view per month and some 500 posts per day.

This is by no means the end of our optimization efforts. It is merely an attempt to show the scale of what is possible with the current versions of the software. Our goal is to fit this workload into less than 10% utilization.

Hope this shines some light on questions about Kunena performance.

We love stars on the Joomla Extension Directory . :-)
