79 queries into a single database?
You see, there's this design flaw in CakePHP, in which it connects
into database as soon as the controller is instantiated. I am not sure
about other database drivers, BUT, in Mysql's, i.e. if you have 4
databases schemas, and you happen to use 4 models in a single
controller, each model connecting into a different database schema,
you'll end up having 4 database connections for _each_ request you got
in this controller - either you use the model object or not. 4
connections to 4 database schemas, even if they're in the same
Also take a look into the I/O resource used to connect into the
database, which turns out to be a bottleneck point. If webserver and
database are within the same host, consider using unix socket instead
TCP/IP connections, it'll help to reduce connection latency.
In my previous experience with such performance issues regarding DB, I
solved this problem of yours when I've hidden CakePHP of the
application. I mean, dinamically generating static pages with
