PartKeepr on Raspberry Pi
PartKeepr can run on a Raspberry Pi. Note that the information below is outdated; please read APC_Metadata_Caching for running PartKeepr on your Raspberry Pi.
PartKeepr 0.76 was tested on a Raspberry Pi Model B running on Apache and mod_php 5.6. It's very slow and it's not recommended to run PartKeepr 0.76 on such slow hardware.
Raspberry Pi 2
PartKeepr 0.76 was tested on a Raspberry Pi 2 running on Apache and mod_php 5.6. It's not very fast, but usable.
Initial login to PartKeepr may take a while. As soon as data is cached, logins should become faster.
In order to achieve best performance, you should ensure that:
- Ensure your max_execution_time is set to 120 seconds or higher, this is required for the setup.
- Opcache enabled
- PHP-APCu installed and enabled with both cache.dunglas and cache.doctrine
- Ensure you don't have xdebug installed - it slows down PHP and is only used for debugging.
- Using a fast SD card (Class 10 or better)
Loading a page with 50 parts takes about 3-4 seconds. Without opcache and APC, load times for a page with 50 parts takes about 9 seconds.
Raspberry Pi 3
PartKeepr 1.4.0 was tested on Raspberry Pi 3 running Apache and PHP 7.0.
Page load from login takes about 2.8 seconds, with subsequent page loads taking ~1 second, and deemed quite usable. PHP maximum_execution and PHP-APCu was installed (as mentioned in the Raspberry Pi 2 notes above).
See the PartKeepr 1.4.0 installation on a Raspberry Pi guide for further details.
