Some PHP-Sites take very long to load (>60 seconds). A famous example is phpmyadmin. The wait-time accours after login, oder after changing the database. CacheGrind (created with xdebug) shows that php::session_start takes 60.011ms to start (1 call) while changing to another Database. The total script took 60.112ms

php.ini changes:
session.save_path = "/www/phptemp/sessions"

/www is a nfs-mount, mounted with options:


Reproduce code:
see phpmyadmin-2.8.1

Expected result:
script-execution time <1 second

Actual result:
script-execution time >60 seconds

Apparently it was bad idea to use NFS for script, as I/O operations are very slow with NFS.
Not PHP problem.

sorry, but a difference of 60 seconds just can't really be a problem of slow I/O. It's some kind of timeout i think, because all other sites on this share are fast as hell, except those who use sessions as well...

if i change session.save_path to "/tmp" (which is on a local reiserfs-partition) everything runs smooth and without these problems...
