    Mods and Performance

    So, I was wondering what people's opinions are on whether installed modifications (hacks) on your vb has a big impact on performance. Thoughts?

    It really depends. Most hacks will work just fine I guess, especially on a small forum.

    On the other hand I remember a hack that added a bad query to the forum home. Most people wouldn't notice it, but installing it on our forum with like 500 concurrent users at peak times pretty much killed the server.

    The solution was pretty easy. We optimized the query, added a new index. Everything's fine ever since. But it's definitely things like that you should keep an eye on, especially if you are running a big board.

    I'm not really lol, I just wondered cause I'm trying to get to the root of my max_user_connections problem and thought maybe it could be poorly written hacks.
