Now serving: SPDY
May 03, 2012 @ 08:14:08

Christopher Kunz is trying out the new web acceleration tool Google recently released (SPDY) when his site is served under HTTPS (warning, self-signed cert).

The reason this posting lands in the PHP category is that I want to have a playground testing PHP applications with mod_spdy. Currently (and probably also in the future), this machine uses mod_php instead of php_(f)cgi(d) - this is not recommended for interoperation with mod_spdy. To test the real-life impact of the possible thread safety issues, I am using my private pages as a sandbox.

He has two other PHP-based applications running with the accelerator - a Gallery3 install and a WordPress site. SPDY ("speedy") was released by Google and is similar to HTTP but with a focus on minimized latency and heightened web security.

Zend Platform Performance Tuning on IBM i
Feb 19, 2009 @ 13:49:03

The Zend Developer Zone has a new article posted looking to help you squeeze the most performance you can out of the Zend Platform application from Zend on your IBM i machine.

Zend Platform on IBM I provides many benefits including monitoring and advanced debugging. One of the more confusing issues that customers face with Zend Platform on IBM i is the impact on development machines. Most will try out Zend Platform in a development environment or on a development LPAR.

There's three things they suggest to tweak to help you get the most out of Platform - code acceleration, dynamic content caching and code compression.
