P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler)

See which plugins are slowing down your site. This plugin creates a performance report for your site.

  1. p3-profiler screenshot 1

    First, profile your site. The scanner generates some traffic on your site and monitors your site's performance on the server, then shows you the results. With this information, you can decide what action to take.

    Use the advanced settings to activate debug mode, control cache busting, or lock down profiling to a set of IP addresses.

    View the debug log on the help page to help troubleshoot if P3 isn't recording properly.

    After profiling, you'll see a breakdown of relative runtime for each plugin.

    Callouts at the top give you quick information like how much load time (in seconds) is dedicated to plugins and how many database queries your site is running per page.

    The detailed timeline gives you timing information for every plugin, the theme, and the core for every page during the profile. Find out exactly what's happening on slow loading pages.

  7. p3-profiler screenshot 5

    You can toggle each series on and off to customize this timeline for your precise needs.

    The query timeline gives you the number of database queries for every page during the profile. Find out which pages generate the most database queries.
