Update - Cobalt v.8.623 Stable
Here is the new version of Cobalt 8.623.
This version contain performance improvements. Although that was targeted as Cobalt 9 feature, it is 50% implemented in this new version. There will be still some improvements in Cobalt 9.
We had a case study with 300k articles and 1.5m fields values. The site we were working on took 17000ms just for SQL queries. Now all SQL queries are only 300ms. To achieve such a performance, of course you have to follow some principles, and I'll post case study with all advises, how to create high performance section in Cobalt where I am going to explain all the details.
But it is not only advises how to configure Cobalt, this release has some DB indexes adjustments and fields filters was refactored. Now filters works differently. Now, we almost fully take advantage of our field values index table, and make that "The more filters you apply, the quicker it works" unlike before after 12 filters applied, with some configurations, you could have experience slowness.
And good news is that there is still room for improvements, which we will be able to do only in Cobalt 9.
