I apologize if this post is in the wrong category. Feel free to move it if necessary.
I've seen on some other forums that people have discredited this board (e.g. some of the posts on this site I came across
) due to page loading time at the bottom. It seems to me that this is unfair to miniBB because it shows how long it takes for the page to load on the client's browser, rather than how long it takes for the script to execute on the server, like other scripts show. Comparitively to the uninformed, this makes miniBB seem like a resource hog. ( You would probably crap your pants if miniBB actually took 1.5 seconds to execute something. )
I know that script execution time measurement would take more cycles in and of itself, so perhaps miniBB should get some benchmarks done against other boards?
I'm particularly interested in benchmarks against PunBB and phorum, as I've seen some people switch to that one. Other boards worth showing benchmarks against would be phpBB and invision board.
I've been through a lot of forum systems, and cms's and I've become a minimalist due to server costs. Resource hogging sites can be booted or halted without question, so it would be nice to know on a uniform server platform, how all these scripts rate out against each other on cpu usage.
