Online Users plugin disabled for the time being

Recommended Posts

As per the IPS bug tracker, it's been reported that some major performance issues are stemming from the Users Online widget.

I've got a pretty cool dude helping me with a few tweaks and he had this to say regarding it, and the tweaks he's building for us :3


I'd think you'd want to hard cache the widget data though and maybe update it every few hours to every 24 hours or something. Widgets like these (online users, the one you posted above, others) are running DB queries on every load of the widget for every user who hits the front page or wherever these are located and it can get rough on popular sites. For example, the Members Online widget or whatever right now is a pretty robust sql query (columns, joins, wheres) with diddly squat for caching. Site performance can really take a dive on sites with a ton of users online at once.

So until IPB does some caching on that widget, it's toast so we can all have a better experience
