Every time I suffer from high load being caused by my forum, I see "vbseo.php" is to blame. So, I look here and each time I see the reason being "vbseo.php is just a wrapper" - as all processes run through vbseo.php.
Okay, that's fine - but why then does my site suffer when vbseo is enabled?
According to pingdom tools, my site loads in 2.96 seconds when VBseo is turned OFF. This is with no caching, no xcache, no optimization.
I immediately turn VBseo back on. Load time: 12.14 seconds!
I turn it off: 3.14 seconds
I turn it on: 14.11 seconds
I turn it off: 2.08 seconds
Can someone please explain this? I have 16gb of RAM and a X3460 CPU. My site should load FASTER with vbseo on as I'm using a CDN, minify options and have XCache enabled.
