A site I built with Kohana was slammed with an enormous amount of traffic yesterday, causing me to take a step back and evaluate some of the design. I'm curious what are some standard techniques for optimizing Kohana-based applications?
I'm interested in benchmarking as well. Do I need to setup
Benchmark::stop() for each controller-method in order to see execution times for all pages, or am I able to apply benchmarking globally and quickly?
I will be using the Cache-library more in time to come, but I am open to more suggestions as I'm sure there's a lot I can do that I'm simply not aware of at the moment.
