Slow #Moodle 2+ Administrator Account? What can you do? #edtech

Are you an administrator on a Moodle 2 or above server? Have you suffered from very slow page loads?

When we first set up our college Moodle 2.5 we were doing a lot of course creation and other fairly low end management tasks.  It was so slow we wondered how on earth teaching staff and students would cope with the waits.  It was only then that we read that the full admin role is much slower than any of the other roles.  We used developer tools and found that on a particularly slow page the admin account was an 18 second wait, manager 5 seconds and teacher or student just one second.  I thought that I could probably carry out most day-to-day tasks with the ‘manager’ role.  I set up my SSO user account as a manager and then created a new manual administrator for when I needed to install plugins, adjust themes etc.  It was a small change, but over the last 8 months it has saved me time and frustration.
