How to increase the search speed
Optimization is needed at the level of PHP, because the database was optimized to the maximum.
Now the search is performed for 8 seconds (due to the large amount of data to be processed and a complex price calculation based on a large number of price profiles, rules, periods of time, etc.).
We need to decrease the search speed to 2 seconds .
There is an idea to use caching, but we have a problem when the price of the product is changed. We need to generate cache again but generation of the whole cache takes a lot of time because of large amount of data.
How to increase the search speed?

As there are no mind readers here, without code and without understanding how the data is organized, I doubt anyone can be of much help. Finding that much speed with PHP code will be difficult at best unless you have some really poor code.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

I agree; if you run the same query in say MySQL Workbench or on the Mysql console, do you see fast results? Are you certain that it's the PHP layers?
If so, get some analytic software on your platform, Tracelytics or such, which will monitor and report showing you where your bottleneck(s) is/are.
ps. with regards to cache, memcache, apc etc will help and re-create the caches I believe accordingly ... of course, you could just let the first person who performs the search re-create the cache? Annoying for 1 user, ok if you have 100's or more that frequent the search

Tips to improve performance of PHP WEB
Here are some tips:
use caching module like Memcache or template system that supports the caching. Smarty is popular one to improve web performance by caching the rendered pages and database results. Use CSS Amalgamation while PHP development. Avoid functional tests in loops. Debug with error reporting.
