Performance of BuddyPress on WP versus WPMU
i’m debating using WP or WPMU for a site I’m building. Initially I won’t be using the WPMU blogs, but I’m likely to use them down the line. Will I see any server performance (CPU and memory usage) difference using WPMU without the blogs being turned on than I would just using a regular WP install?
Along this same line of thought. It’s been pretty clear that BP requires a decent amount of CPU/Memory as you start to scale. I’m interested to know how much people think the added CPU/Memory usage was because of BP and how much of it was due to WPMU? Basically, was it BP that was the resource hog or was it all the WPMU blogs that were created (since BP use to only be on MU) that was the resource hog? Has anyone scaled a WP/BP install to a large number of users and seen what type of resources were required as it scaled?
