t’s not a secret that Magento has a great functionality which is incomparably better than the other platforms. However, due to this Magento has pretty complicated configurations in the speed improvements. So, I have decided to test Magento store speed. Undoubtedly that speed is one of the most important things in ecommerce.

Put it simply: the faster page is generated – the better for SEO and more pleasant to the user. I am not going to rant, I think all the conclusions you will make by yourself on the basis of the test results.

Testing server: 8 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630 @ 2.30GHz, 2GB RAM, nginx/1.4.7 + php-fpm 5.4.26, MySQL Percona 5.6.16-64.1. Channel- 1Gbit/sec. Magento CE with demo-date installed. Testing – through Siege.

Magento store speed test configurations:

Cache is on+js/css+ full page cache
Cache is on+php-apc+js/css+full page cache+redis
Cache is on+php-apc+js/css+full page cache+varnish
Cache is on+php-apc+js/css+ full page cache
Cache is on+php-apc+js/css+ compilation
Cache is on+php-apc+js/css
Cache is on+php-apc
Cache is on
Cache is off
Each Magento store speed test was conducted for 5 times (except for test with varnish, on 5th time Data Center decided that it was a DDoS attack.
