With this plugin you can "dyno test" the your PHP and MySQL servers and run a network test to determine the speed of your network.
CPU performance testing: This plugin does various calculations and string manipulations on your PHP webserver and your MySQL backend server. To further test the MySQL server, a sequence of MySQL inserts, selects, updates and deletes are performed in a separate custom database table (we do not use your WordPress tables for this).
Network testing: The network is tested by fetching directly from Google's CDN / apis network. Fetching from the google apis network gives you the nearest server, and will give more accurate results. We also fetch a small 1Mb file from our servers as well in case the Google apis is down. The network tests are not yet shown in the graphs, we are working on this :-)
Results: After the sequence of tests has finished, the results will be displayed for you to evaluate. Typical results for the MySQL query test is 0.05-0.25 seconds, but only if a MySQL socket connection is used. Web hosting providers with dedicated servers (like us) will show a slower time/queries per second, as a TCP/IP connection to the MySQL server is made instead of a local socket connection.
Generally speaking, the faster this plugin runs, the faster your website will run.
There are many factors that will determine how fast your website will run. This plugin does not test for how many hits a second your provider allows to your website, file system performance is not tested either. Use it as a performance test to assess how fast a CPU your provider has allocated to your webserver and your MySQL database backend.
Share with your friends, let's start a competition and see who is the fastests :-)
