这篇是前篇文章 Optimizing WordPress hosted on Windows 的后续文章。
现在是假期所以我有一些空闲时间，我会在这篇文章补充前篇第一部份的数据，主要集中解释在 WordPress 的 Azure CDN 使用 W3 总缓存 WP 插件。
Within this post, I will focus on the basics of Availability and Performance monitoring within the Azure preview portal. This includes the creation of custom dashboards, adding and altering charts, enabling diagnostics and creating alerts.
This post is a follow-up post to my previous post Optimizing WordPress hosted on Windows.
It’s the holiday season and therefore having some time to spare, I thought I might as well include the part I left out my previous post. Therefore this post focuses solely on including Azure CDN within your WordPress environment using the W3 Total Cache WP plugin.
I was recently working on some performance issues, which also included dealing with the web front-end. I’m more of a middleware/backend guy, however do know my way around web development and website optimization (minification, bundling, caching, Gzip, CDN etc.)
After working on the issues, I was wondering how my blog would perform. To be honest, I’ve never run any analysis, leave alone applied any tweaks. This website is a basic out of the box WordPress installation (scripted by discountasp.net) hosted on Windows containing only a hand full of articles. And therefore not even thinking about possible performance issues, but I was wrong.
I won’t cover why enabling AutoShrink is such a bad idea. There are numerous articles on the web, pointing this out in great detail. However, as a DBA you might want to know how many AutoShrink databases are active on your servers.
