Question

Traffic scaling for SlickStack Nginx machine

Deciding between Docker and Easyengine / SlickStack for Nginx stack running Wordpress and wondering how traffic compares

Will Docker containers be different on each cloud host? is it the same results for traffic limit on Digitalocean as another provider, and will the container hurt my LEMP stack ability to scale high traffic or is it nearly identical with a normal LEMP stack.

in fact, i disabled the firewall of cloudflare in order to try to push the limits of SS. Once again, the app used on WP is very intensive. The SS is extremely resilient also the repeated access of the pages in row. I think that we got around 2000-3000 users in the same time on 3 or 4 pages with a good latency. Wordops is working well on 100 or 200.

1500 clients per second in 1 minute, the average response time is 23 ms. From 0 to 6000 clients in 1 minute, the average response time is 139 ms.

quoted from https://hostedtalk.net/t/maximum-traffic-load-for-slickstack-compared-to-other-lemp-stacks/5995

and https://blogelegant.com/how-to-install-wordpress-with-slickstack/

is the result primary from Docker bloat? or some other config problem with Wordops… and will the datacenter affect it too

If you are newbie than avoid Docker, it is very advanced. So EasyEngine is probably difficult for you to understand.

Docker is not slowing down your server much, however the speed depends on settings you chose during WordOps installation. And also the quality of your hosting server.

SlickStack will be easier for you to learn-- because, that is only a basic shell command to begin the installation process. And really after the install finished in 5-10 minutes, you never required to mess around with the scripts and settings again really.
