[TYPO3] Large Typo3 newssite (15k news rec) - Performance question

Hi All,

	I'm operating a large news site with two domains : 
http://www.szochalo.hu and http://www.romapage.hu in one Typo3 
instance. They contain around 2300 page records and 15-16000 news 

	I would like to know your Apache benchmark (version 2) results with 
such large sites operating on one computer. The command is:

./ab2 -c 100 -n 1000 http://www.large-site-name.com/

(It's bundled with apache...)

	I would appreciate your help.

	We have problems with performance: the site is slow for us, and in 
some circustamces, it even stops responding.

	We have measured the following:
Requests per second: 3.45 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request: 28944.626 [ms] (mean)
Time per request: 289.446 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent requests)
Transfer rate: 76.35 [Kbytes/sec] received

Then we downgraded the resolution of EXEC_TIME to hourly 
(intval(time()/3600)), we measured the following:

Requests per second:    6.55 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request:       15262.526 [ms] (mean)
Time per request:       152.625 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent 
Transfer rate:          104.12 [Kbytes/sec] received

Compared, a default mambo install on the same machine has the following 

Requests per second:    26.36 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request:       3793.005 [ms] (mean)
Time per request:       37.930 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent 
Transfer rate:          507.99 [Kbytes/sec] received

(Really just for comparsion, not for flame)

	The hardware is 3GHz P4 with HyperThreading, with 1G RAM (possibly we 
will raise it tomorrow by 1)

	The two sites normally have about 1000-1200 visitors by day in sum.

	Of course, php e-accelerator and typo3 caching is enabled. We tried to 
play with apache child numbers, but it didn't help. It's now around 32.

Thanks a lot for your help in advance:
	Adam Nemeth (Aadaam)
