Subject Re: [C2] Profiling, compiled XSLT & database SELECT caching; was: serverpages doesn't like auto-generated xsp?
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2001 07:37:14 GMT
Any hints from anyone on a good strategy for working out which pipeline 
stages are slowing things down.  I've tried to use the profiler but haven'
t got anywhere.  Trying to do code profiling on Cocoon just overloads my 
system!

Is XSLT precompiled nowadays - I don't see an option for it that there 
used to be, and I don't see any compiled code in the caches.

Finally, is there any option for delaying the frequency of actual database 
SELECTs so that repeated calls for the same information also return from 
cache?  One option that could be really useful in many cases would be to 
return from cache unless an UPDATE had been issued from Cocoon in the 
interim.  Clearly many databases will be updated from other sources but 
ours aren't!

Stuart.
