Docman Speed


I am using the latest version of DOCMAN.

My joomla website acts as a social site and a content management system.

The docman is going to hold large amount data maybe go upto 25 to 30GB worth of documents.

My question is that will this slow down my site.

Does docman load each file whenever a page is refreshed or when you are moving through the site.

Is there any prevention added in docman so that it wont slow down the speed of the whole site as the document storage increases.

I was told before buying the product that it does not slow down the speed of the site I just want to be sure.

Hi Syed,

DOCman does not slow down the speed of your site at all. The amount of data DOCman holds has no effect on your site performance.

DOCman will only load a file when it's being downloaded. When you are browsing DOCman all the data you see is coming from the database. This works in the exact same way as the Joomla article manager or any other Joomla extension.

On top of that DOCman includes various caching techniques and performance optimisations to make it run as fast as possible.

Does that help you ?
