#AWS provides a highly scalable and reliable cloud hosting environment for #Moodle. With features like Auto Scaling Groups, Elastic Load Balancers and CloudWatch Monitoring services, Moodle deployments on AWS can be configured to automatically scale up and down seamlessly to meet the highs and lows in the demand curve in the most optimum and cost-effective manner. This post presents reference architecture for deploying Moodle Learning Management System over AWS Cloud to achieve high levels of #Performance, #Scalability, Availability, Security and Reliability.
Performance enhancements for Apache and PHP
In addition to updating and expanding the #Bitnami Library, we are continuously looking for ways to improve our existing Bitnami stacks. In this latest round of updates, we focused on improving the performance of our Bitnami Stacks in limited resource systems such as #Amazon #EC2 micro instances, which have 1 virtual CPU and 613 MB of RAM, and Microsoft Azure extra-small virtual machines, that ship 1 CPU core and 768 MB of RAM.
We have now configured our Virtual Machines and Cloud Images to use the #Apache Event MPM and #PHP-FPM, resulting in reduced memory usage and an increase in the number of simultaneous requests that they can handle.
What is the Apache event MPM?
Apache supports three different Multi-Processing Modules (MPMs) that are responsible for binding to network ports on the machine, accepting requests and dispatching children to handle the requests.
Here, is a part two on “Boosting Moodle Performance” where we will be telling you some more tips and beneficial modules that can render your Moodle website to increase its speed more.
Boosting Moodle Performance – Tips To Speed Up Your Moodle Install
This ‘Speed up Moodle’ series of 4 posts will teach you step-by-step how to optimise your Linux server for Moodle. It is aimed at beginner server administrators.
Nagios is a popular open source computer system and network monitoring software application. It watches hosts and services, alerting users when things go wrong and again when they get better. Nagios offers complete monitoring and alerting for servers, switches, applications, and services.There are plenty of ways you can monitor a server using nagios for example through ssh, nrpe or snmp. In this blog post I will be explaining monitoring parameters of an Ubuntu server running Moodle.

mtop (MySQL top) is an open source real time MYSQL Server monitoring program written in Perl language that shows queries which are taking longer time to process and kills those longer queries after certain number of specified time. Mtop program enable us to monitor and identify performance and related issues of MySQL Server from the command line interface similar to Linux Top Command.
Mtop includes zooming feature that display query optimizer information of a running queries and killing queries, it also shows statistics of server, configuration information and some useful tuning tips to optimize and improve MySQL performance.
Please check some of the following features offered by Mtop program.
- Display real time MySQL server queries.
- Provides MySQL configuration information.
- Zooming feature to display process query.
- Provides query Optimizer information for a query and ‘killing’ queries.
- Provides MySQL tuning tips.
- Ability to save output in a .mtoprc configuration file.
- Provides Sysadmin recommendation page (‘T‘).
- Added queries/second to main header.
- Added per second info to stats screen.
