It's my impression that the TYPO3 backend got slower and slower on each release;
I can only speak of TYPO3 4.4, 4.5 and 6.0 but backend performance got worse from 4.4 to 4.5 to 6.0.

I'm running 4.5 and 6.0 on the same virtual machine locally with
APC enabled, and 4.5 is a lot faster in loading backend pages than 6.0 -
and it's not "in-browser" rendering duration nor resource-downloading;
it takes a lot of time until the server sends data back to the browser.

How can the speed be addressed and field of optimization be identified?


Updated by Dmitry Dulepov over 8 years ago

That's the price you pay for "modern", "MVC", "dependency injection", etc. When the code becomes more complex, it usually runs slower. If you need better speed, stay with 4.5.


Updated by Ingo Renner over 8 years ago

Dmitry, that's not true. Complexity does not imply slowness. Dirty code however does as it is not maintainable and can not easily optimized without breaking functionality.

If you think that this is the wrong decision or experience this issue again, then please write to the mailing list typo3.teams.bugs with issue number and an explanation or open a new ticket and add a relation to this ticket number.

The BE of 6.2 is faster then the one from 6.0 (on my machines) and TYPO3 CMS 7 again speeds up the backend.
