My friend and I just imported a huge blog(5000+ posts). The import was sucessfull. But when I browse the blog it takes more time to load and this happens only for the first time when you visit the site.

the more posts you have, the longer it takes to load after an application restart, but after the first request it should be just as fast as a blog with only a few posts. I have about 250 posts and it is very fast after the initial first request.

Related posts have to be calculated the first time you hit a certain post, but only the first time. If you turn Related Posts off in the admin, you'll get a performance gain on such a big blog you have.

But again, I have 250 posts and it runs smooth as a baby's butt.
