I am a brand new RT user. This is my first post. We are network people and dont know much about apache and web server tuning and so forth. (learning fast).
But, the first trial install of RT that I made using Rt 3.8 using the Ubuntu packages on an Ubuntu 10.04 virtual machine with 1gb ram was super fast.
Having reviewed RT on that platform, I decided to commit to RT, and made an install of RT 4.0.1 on a fresh but identical Ubuntu 10.04 virtual machine, using Apache2 and mod_perl.
The RT 4.0.1 is very sluggish compared to the 3.8 version. My RT installs have only the general queue and 5 or 10 tickets as I am just in the trial stage.
The web UI is Very slow in 4.0.1.
The php.info and other apache status pages, and webmin that I have running on this machine are superfast, so I point to RT as being the culprit.
Can anyone help me troubleshoot this?
Techy details about my install:

Subject: Re: [rt-users] Tuning RT4
I can’t speak for the dev team, but I have noticed a distinct trend:
Apache+mod_perl is very slow with RT4.0.
Lighttpd+FCGI is fast with RT4.0.
Standalone PSGI is really fast with RT4.0 (but not very scalable unless
you know what you’re doing).
I haven’t tested Apache with anything other than mod_perl, so I don’t know
if it’s Apache-specific or mod_perl-specific.
Most of the speed problems I’ve seen posted here are with RHEL/CentOS/SL
stock httpd & mod_perl installs, so it’s also possible the problem is
(And yes, I have a ticket open to try to narrow this down; unfortunately I
haven’t had time to keep following up on it.)
