avoid potential overloading
I’m using buddypress to build a dating website.
estimated Members -6000,estimated visitors per day 500-600.
Major part of this website will be a kind of matching questionnaire ,
each time you or other member answer a question a constantly updating list of your best matches (from all the members), will be displayed in the questionnaire page in the website .
That means a lots of simultaneous database connections /requests.
now I was told by a colleague that developing such questionnaire plugin for wordpress /buddypress is a big mistake.
- First because processing all this data in real time, meaning answers sent to database ,compared ,calculated and send back to the page will exceed the server capacity very soon.
- Second because each request Invokes loading of the whole WordPress (wp-load.php).
His solution was to manage all the calculations outside wordpress like in some kind of SOAP web service,
My question is simple:
how to avoid overloading in this plugin and is webservice really the solution?
