How are Mulitsite and site Database(s) handled?

I could use some insight on a multisite installs...

Heres the SCENARIO
Main Site w/ two sub-domains of: Forum (bbpress) & Store (wooCommerce)

1) Does this slow performance of all sites?

2) What basic information is shared between sites? ex: login credentials / posts / media

Thanks!

    Hello Chris,

    Two subsites in one network will not slow the site. When there are thousands of subsites then you could start thinking about optimizing database and server.

    2) What basic information is shared between sites? ex: login credentials / posts / media

    Those are not shared between sites - each subsite has own tables for posts, pages, settings, plugin settings (except those that are network activated and used only in network or main site), users, themes settings. Also each subsite has own media files - they are not sharing them.

    kind regards,
    Kasia
