Here are some tips on how to speed up your SugarCRM:
Drop the absolute totals from ListViews by adding this line to your SugarCRM’s config.php file:
‘disable_count_query’ = true;
Alternatively, you can create a file config_override.php and add this line to it:
$sugar_config['disable_count_query'] = true;
Disable automatic query repetition on List Views by adding this line to config_override.php:
$sugar_config['save_query'] = ‘populate_only’;
Disable client IP verification by adding this line to config_override.php:
$sugar_config["verify_client_ip"] = false;
Disable VCR control by adding this line to config_override.php:
$sugar_config['disable_vcr'] = true;
Hide unused subpanels by adding these lines to config_override.php:
$sugar_config['hide_subpanels'] = true;
$sugar_config['hide_subpanels_on_login'] = true;
In the php.ini set this value:
zlib.output_compression = 1

So you’ve worked with SugarCRM for a while and wondered how you can integrate your Accounts module, or in fact any module with Google Maps…maybe you want to show how to load a map based on the address information you’ve got about a contact or an account?
Well, this can be done to any module, be it a custom one or not, as long as you have address fields to build the lookup. We’re using the Contacts module in this case, and it requires minimal effort – you use Sugar’s Studio to perform all of the modifications.
