22 queries, 1.459 seconds

That is 0.07 seconds per query. How fast is your WordPress on your host? Go to three random post on your blog and copy-paste those values here in comments. I am trying to decide if I should switch web host.

Here are mine: (1) 29 queries. 1.562 seconds. (2) 29 queries. 4.205 seconds. (3) 29 queries. 0.891 seconds. On a local windows machine it is 13 queries in 0.311 seconds (0.024 seconds per query).

    71 queries. 0.584 seconds.

    I seems like your blog is a bit slow.

  2. Matt says:

    43 queries.
    0,778 seconds.

    Is your DB optimized ?

  3. Kaspars says:

    Matt, do you mean simple db optimization or something more complex? If the former, then yes — I optimized the tables just yesterday.

  4. Kaspars says:

    Aouni, wow — that is fast. Which host are you on?

    serverstats: average 23.04 queries per 1 second. uptime: 266 days

  6. Suskun says:

    <!– 35 queries. 0.360 seconds. –> I’am using Siteground hosting. I never optimized db and don’t know how to do. if you can explain it would be great :) by the way I did some performance improvement including closing etag, expire header, header cache control etc.

  7. Kaspars says:

    Suskun, thanks for sharing the information. Here is how OPTIMIZE works in MySQL. You can usually do this through phpMyAdmin.

    Dynamic Page Served (once) in 0.759 seconds
    when I posted previous comments :)

    My blog front page: 105 queries in 1.765 seconds (nothing cached, no cache plugin, hosted on dreamhost)

    • Kaspars says:

      Ozh, thanks for reporting. Would you recommend changing the host? I am currently on mediatemple, but have bought a package at dreamhost. Are you using dreamhost’s VPS MySql or the shared one?

  11. Hans vd Woude says:

    I have a free host at x10hosting (server = absolut) and my stats are: 28 queries. 0.266 seconds. It is fast enough I think.

    • Kaspars says:

      Hans, that is fast, indeed.

      I have already purchased a hosting package from Dreamhost (including a dedicated MySQL server) and I planing to move there early next year.

  12. Hans vd Woude says:

    forgot something: My site is xorb-world.co.cc so it is also with a free domain.

    I should change host if I were you I should changed host immediatly, it is dramaticly slow
