Load testing and New Relic One of the most effective ways to ensure that your site will have a successful launch is to load test it before you go live. Even after a site is live, performance tuning is an ongoing – often incremental – process. This session will cover some basic tips on how to tune your out-of-the-box Drupal site. Then we'll dive into to setting up a simple load test and how to review New Relic to see what info we can garner. Attendees will leave with some useful tips all Drupal sites will benefit from, as well as an understanding of how to use New Relic to help identify and resolve performance issues. This presentation was recently delivered at DrupalCamp LA 2019.
