Bitrix performance on SSD-drives

Solid State Drives (SSD) are increasingly attracting attention. When SSD drives are used, system performance increases by several times.

Let’s take a look at 1C-Bitrix Standard edition working on HP DL120-G7 server with Intel Quad-Core Xeon E3-1230 processor with 4GB of RAM, and two SSD drives 60 GB each, working in RAID1.

The server for Bitrix has been configured for reaching maximum performance, non-optimality of the configuration is due to the absence of ZendOpcache support in “Performance Monitor” module. Bitrix promises to add support for this in PHP accelerator into perfmon in the following edition of their product. Performance of Bitrix configuration was 175 units:


Loading test has also been performed for 32 parallel users. Without much change in generation time and page return time, the number of page hits was close to 1,000, and the number of the pages generated per second was 330:


Change in the number of connections does not greatly affect the number of the pages generated per second and the number of hits (which is logical):
