We have a inherited a heavily modified magento store that requires some performance diagnostics and fixes. This is a maximum of a few hours work for a talented magento developer.
Specifically, the store uses configurable products with a lot of simple products attached to them (paint tins with lots of available colours). We are seeing 20s-30s load times on category landing pages right now.
If you have experience of a similar setup it would be highly beneficial so please provide details of previous work where possible and an outline of what your improvements meant in terms of load times (you don't need to to supply the actual fixes).
We will supply further details to approved bidders (URLs, debug output and code) - please mention the phrase "spider monkey" to prove you have read this project outline!
We are looking for individual FREELANCERS only, no companies please and you must be available to start immediately (before the weekend) so please confirm this fact.
