Hi there,

Indeed when a large number of goods or attributes need to be saved, backend works very slow, as each time you save data the system re-indexes the goods through the entire catalog.

Asynchronous Re-indexing is a solution of this problem. When a product or category is saved it is not immediately re-indexed, but put into a queue. The queue is re-indexed in the background. This greatly speeds up the backend. This mechanism is implemented by using an extension of http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/magento-asynchronous-reindex.html

Hello,
Not to drudge up a old thread but is there any tools out there to built a test Magento install with XX sites and XX sub-stores ext using the sample something like the sample install for testing purposes?

I’ve been using Redis for clients with multiple Magento stores. Including FPC. One example of monitoring:

... Redis cache grew to 6GB! Had to sex max and set to prune by LRU.

It is not a necessity to run Redis, it is a nice to have once everything else is setup just like FPC, it is the sum of the parts not any one area. Running with 10s of stores make Magento slow to a crawl on the frontend and the backend, running 100s and you are at the top of the top websites so if your revenue is not in the $millions per year you will not be able to afford the hosting to handle the environment ($1,000s/mth). The theory is nice, the practice has only been done by a couple of people, we know one of them.

For the sample sites, you can easily build a script to create stores/websites, but again if you do not have the best of the best hosting and know how to setup the configuration exactly, you will be waiting minutes to never for a product to save in the admin.

For reference, we now license technology to do this, basically creating a website/store per country means you need $1,000s/mth hosting, code solutions are not stable (as we have found out), the technology we license is from very high-end consultants (they charge $1,000s/day) and make a Magento CE/EE site work like Hybris/Demandware/ATG/WebSphere which retailers such as Saks, Net-A-Porter use for their eCommerce.

It is a very complex, very difficult environment needing dynamic pricing, supplier markups, constant currency updates, cost of goods calculations, realtime tax-duties-shipping calculations, multi-regional warehouses, local currency checkout, support 200+ countries from a single tld (Magento does not doe this natively). It works incredibly well, is upgrade friendly and stable, but it is very high end hence why you will only come across a couple of people who have done 200+ multi-country with the same number of Magento stores and large web clusters, and this solution which does the same but only needs a handful of stores and much less hardware.
