I am not sure I understand what you mean here. The problem is that the
site becomes unresponsive when many users are hitting web applications
that does heavy work against the database or renders large amounts of
HTML. I am in the process of improving the performance of the code but
it would be nice to provide better performance to the users while
these improvements are being made. I haven't noticed any performance
differences between using HTTPS or HTTP.
