Have been doing some Moin testing on my own (was able to get
compareable delays after generating ~3500 Moin users on my own wiki).
Turns out the #moin-dev guys don't like hotshots (sounds like it is
pretty unreliable) and prefer cProfile (which is in Python 2.5).
I cooked up this little patch to add cProfile support for the
standalone moin server -- maybe useful to someone interested in doing
profiling of the wiki later:
After looking at the profile information, it seems that creating an
index/cache of page subscription regexp's pointing to the subscribed
users would speed things up a lot. I don't think this would be too bad
The #moin-dev guys agree, and would be willing to up-port any patch I
make for 1.5.8 into their 1.6 code. They are currently writing a whole
new storage subsystem, but obviously it will be some time before it's
stable and even longer before Fedora makes use of it would be my guess.
for my project
notes on this. My own personal wiki contains the most information
about what I've tried so far.
