Question "Recent Topics" page is slow

My forum makes use of the Recent Topics page a lot. It is the landing page of choice when entering the forum from the main Joolma site for example.

It is taking around 11 to 12 seconds to load (based on Google analytics) compared to topic pages at around 2 secs.

I assume this is because it is indexing the posts to get the most recent whilst a topic page is directly accessing specific content.

Is there any way to speed the Recent Topics page?

For me Recent topics is 1,5 second exactly like forum index. Kunena 5.1.5 and Joomla 3.8.13 and PHP 7.2.11 500 000 forumposts.

When I updated to Kunena 5.1.4 it was errors in bootstrap loading and loading time of 10 seconds. This sound similar to that. Take a look in browser to down left to see what is loading.

Found it...

Somewhere in the last few weeks it has decided to load the User Stats module again. As I still suffer from the Sessions Database growing too large this module was hitting loading times. Cleared the sessions database and disabled the stats, now all fine

My Joomla session table was a couple of weeks ago 25 GB from almost nothing. I had to empty the table and in Joomla general setting change session from database to PHP. Then I had no problem, but I got logged out after the change. PHP-sessions are stored in memory and is thus faster than database.

I also installed the plugin Easy Session Killer. It did not work on the session table, but after I installed it and with PHP session the session table did not grow anymore.

PHP sessions is good for guests that are cached, because their session is independent of the bottleneck database server. A session is created for guests too.

I also use PHP sessions and session killer but it has no effect for some reason (sessions still build in database)

I have probability 2 for setting for Easy Session Killer. Yesterday I updated to Joomla 3.9 and saw that some session files seemed to be changed.
