I just opened an account with godaddy on a VD server and I loaded up Magento and I noticed that the backend was running slow as I have ever seen a website run and I don’t even have any products on this site and the only thing on this server is magento and a 1 page 30kb splash page for an upcoming site.
I have only 2 domains setup on this server and I loaded apache with the requirments made by Magento
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
