Ubiquity is fast, but can be even faster by optimizing a few elements.
The integrated test server (accessible by Ubiquity serve) uses its own configuration and launch files (in the .ubiquity folder of your project).
It should therefore not be used to assess the results of the changes made.
Test your pages using a software and hardware configuration similar to the one used in production.
Use a benchmark tool to assess your changes as they happen (Apache bench for example).
Choose and test among the different cache systems (ArrayCache, PhpFastCache, MemCached).
The cache system is defined in the configuration file:
"cache" => [ "directory" => "cache/", "system" => "Ubiquity\\cache\\system\\ArrayCache", "params" =>  ]
default ArrayCache is often the most optimized solution.
Generate the router and ORM cache (Think that annotations are never used at runtime):
If your application has pages that are being generated by PHP but that actually rarely change, you can cache:
- The query results (using DAO methods)
- The route response (with @route annotation)
Remove the line defining error reporting at runtime, and make sure that error display is disabled in php.ini.
error_reporting(\E_ALL);//To be removed
The configuration is accessible from the
Keep only those items that are essential to your application.
|siteUrl||Used by Ajax methods, and by Twig’s
||To be removed if these functions are not used|
|database||Used by Ubiquity ORM||To be removed if the ORM is not used|
|sessionName||If assigned, starts or retrieves the php session for each request||To be removed if the session is useless|
|templateEngine||If assigned, instanciates a new Engine object for each request||To be removed if the views are not used|
|templateEngineOptions||Options assigned to the template engine instance||set the cache option to
|test||To remove (deprecated)|
|debug||Enables or disables logs||Set to
|logger||Defines the logger instance||To remove in production|
|di||Defines the services to be injected||Only the
|cache||Defines the cache path and base class of the cache, used by models, router, dependency injection|
|mvcNS||Defines the paths or namespaces used by Rest controllers, models and controllers|
|isRest||Defines the condition to detect if a path corresponds to a controller Rest||To be removed if you do not explicitly use this condition in your code|
Example of configuration without session, and without dependency injection:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
<?php return array( "templateEngine"=>'Ubiquity\\views\\engine\\Twig', "templateEngineOptions"=>array("cache"=>true), "debug"=>false, "cache"=>["directory"=>"cache/","system"=>"Ubiquity\\cache\\system\\ArrayCache","params"=>], "mvcNS"=>["models"=>"models","controllers"=>"controllers","rest"=>""] );
The loaded services are accessibles from the
As for the configuration file, keep only those items that are essential to your application.
|\Ubiquity\cache\CacheManager::startProd($config)||Starts the cache for ORM, database, router, dependency injection|
|UbiquityormDAO::start()||To be used only with multiple databases|
|Router::start()||To be used only if the routes are defined with annotations|
|Router::addRoute(“_default”, “controllers\IndexController”)||Defines the default route (to remove in production)|
|UbiquityassetsAssetsManager::start($config)||Assigns the variable siteUrl to the ThemeManager, to be used only if the
Example of a Services file with a database and starting the router :
1 2 3
<?php \Ubiquity\cache\CacheManager::startProd($config); \Ubiquity\controllers\Router::start();
In production, remove dependencies used only in development, and generate the optimized class map file:
composer install --no-dev --classmap-authoritative
If the dependencies used have already been removed and you only want to update the map file (after adding or removing a class):
composer dump-autoload -o --classmap-authoritative
--no-dev parameter removes the
ubiquity-dev dependency required by webtools.
If you use webtools in production, add the
composer require phpmv/ubiquity-dev
Please note that other applications can use the modified values on the same server.
OPcache improves PHP performance by storing precompiled script bytecode in shared memory, thereby removing the need for PHP to load and parse scripts on each request.
[opcache] ; Determines if Zend OPCache is enabled opcache.enable=1
; The OPcache shared memory storage size. opcache.memory_consumption=256 ; The maximum number of keys (scripts) in the OPcache hash table. ; Only numbers between 200 and 1000000 are allowed. opcache.max_accelerated_files=10000 ; When disabled, you must reset the OPcache manually or restart the ; webserver for changes to the filesystem to take effect. opcache.validate_timestamps=0 ; Allow file existence override (file_exists, etc.) performance feature. opcache.enable_file_override=1 ; Enables or disables copying of PHP code (text segment) into HUGE PAGES. ; This should improve performance, but requires appropriate OS configuration. opcache.huge_code_pages=1
If you use ubiquity-swoole web server:
; Determines if Zend OPCache is enabled for the CLI version of PHP opcache.enable_cli=1
Remember that the framework used does not do everything. You also need to optimize your own code.
