vB Optimise

Increases page load speed & decreases server load by eliminating billions of queries.

vB Optimise is an extension to vBulletin which aims to improve resources by eliminating MySQL queries commonly executed around your forum.

It supports multiple cache extensions available to the PHP language and additionally supports the File System for those without any Cache Extensions installed.

vB Optimise can also integrate into other modifications to allow them to become less server intensive so the features you love don't become problems within the future.

vB Optimise is intended to optimise vBulletin software by integrating several PHP "cachers" and handling data before vBulletin. This works by encountering and handling data prior to vBulletin in order to skip the arbitary execution that would be more server intensive.
