Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Help Needed in Setting up .LRN to Scale
It does indeed look like this has to do this particular setup and has nothing to do with .LRN/OpenACS. We just did a comparison on a MUCH SMALLER Sun box (with cob webs and all) and .LRN was faster than what we are experiencing now.
We are moving forward and will report when we find out the exact problem for posterity.
P.S. Mike wrote, "we're running several busy Oracle sites, one with a database in excess of 10GB and over 15 million hits per month on less hardware" and I am sure we can do the same thing with a .LRN site, it is just a question of some of the .LRN users cooperating on making it happen with gradual improvements over time.
