Subject: DokuWiki able to handle a High Traffic Site?

My website is a pretty high-traffic forum has 80,000 members and that gets around 15 million page views per month. I'm really interested in adding a wiki because I think it will be a great way to pull out and organize some really useful information that comes up in the forum. My forum software is php/mysql.

I'm wondering if the fact that DokuWiki uses flat files rather than a database means that it's going to bog down my server considering the traffic I get. Or is a flat file software generally OK in a wiki situation because people aren't doing as much reading & writing as they do with a forum.

Thanks for any insight you may have!

I haven't personally played with DokuWiki as a high traffic site, but I doubt it would be the best solution for you. Saying this even though I'm crazy about DokuWiki.

There are some reports from other people in regards to scalability here. Do note that not many of those reports list what version they are using, and lately the "worse" parts like searching has been improved.
And some talk about DokuWiki performance.
