Description Travis D 2004-12-08 21:36:01 UTC
Running version 1.3.7 on Linux Fedora 2, with Apache 2.0.50, PHP version 4.3.8, 
running MySQL-max v 4.0.20

Quite frequently Apache chews up all the CPU when Apache serves anything over 10 
requests at once, bringing the CPU load up to 99%.

From top:

  PID USER     PRI  NI  SIZE  RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM   TIME CPU COMMAND
 4902 root      16   0  8064 6392  6268 S    99.3  0.6   2:35   0 httpd

I've installed Turck MMCache to help reduce the load and turned on MediaWiki's file 
caching, neither have been able to fix the problem. I read WikiTravel had similar 
problems to this with MediaWiki 1.3.x, is there any documentatin on how to fix this?
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-12-11 06:28:51 UTC
Give 1.4beta2 a try; in most cases it should render faster than 1.3, and I've 
added some additional optimization for file cache hits.

Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-03 19:24:00 UTC
Please test again with the lastest stable version (1.4)
eventually try out 1.5 which comes with a new database
schema.
Comment 3 Travis D 2005-07-04 12:43:04 UTC
Yep, when we moved to 1.4 things improved nicely. I should have updated the bug
earlier.
