Has anyone implemented Cloudflare or something similar to help with performance? I realize that the majority of the CPU usage will come from mysql and clourflare will only help with static resources, but I’m looking at ways to optimize the performance of the site. Plus the security and analytics aspect of it is an added bonus.
Are there downsides to using something like this with Clouflare? Are there a sort of standard set of optimization settings you would recommend? I’m still on php5.XX. Does 7.XX run better? Etc.
I do see CPU spikes, but not high enough and sustained long enough that I would think it would consistently hinder performance. Though I do hear of complaints from staff occasionally.
