Chapter 11. Moodle Performance and Optimization

The performance of a web-based system is a critical issue and it is a key responsibility of the administrator to configure, monitor, and fine-tune the virtual learning environment for maximum speed. While Moodle has the potential to scale to thousands of simultaneous users, good performance management is required to guarantee adequate scalability.

After providing an overview, we will be covering the most relevant topics relating to Moodle performance and optimization.

  • Moodle content

    We will look at how content creation, content volume, and different content types can impact the performance of your Moodle system.

  • Moodle system settings

    A wide range of system-related performance settings are dealt with, namely:

    • Path settings

    • Caching settings

    • Module settings (gradebook, chat, forum, and cron)

    • Miscellaneous settings (languages, filters, and searches)
