Very Helpful Tool
By , for WP 3.9.2

I "manage" a lot of WordPress sites. But I'm not a "webmaster." When I use many of the other site tools out there and get recommendations like "Take all the javascripts in your WP Theme & Plugins and merge them into 1" that just isn't feedback I can actually use.

When P3 breaks down what your Core, Theme, & Individual Plugins are doing to your site load times, it's information I can easily act on. I can weigh how much I value a plugin, it's load cost, and then make a decision.

Almost all the plugins I tend to use ring up small times on P3, with 2 big and unfortunate exceptions. Jetpack clocks in at 600ms and Yoast SEO at 300ms. They're both fantastic plugins, but just the 2 of them mean a full second slower page loads? The research on how deterring even a 100ms slow down in load time is so devastating it's hard to believe that anything is worth 900ms!

I asked the Jetpack team about this and they very politely replied that P3 was a "great" plugin... "but"... Their "but" was that by it's nature P3 can only run as a logged in user. So it's clocking things that Jetpack only does for logged in users like Stats & Sparklines. Although they couldn't give me a number, the Jetpack team felt that for a non-logged in user, or "reader," the Jetpack hit on page load would be much smaller.

Nice tool

I must say this plugin does what it's supposed to. After multiple passes you do get different results but it is a great to to get an approximate load time of plugins.
It's a great way to see what plugin may cause slowdowns also its a very good diagnostic tool to tell if a plugin is good or not.

Just keep in mind that the times are not 100% correct so the plugin should be used as a nice reference point for further site optimizations.
For example, it's a great way to see how Jetpack is a huge resource hog etc.

Loved the score but
By , for WP 3.9.1

It almost looks too good. But the results were backed up by Pingdom speed test pretty much. Yet a GTMetrix site test looks a lot different. I am moving forward and making changes based on this plugin. I see no reason not to trust it based on the Pingdom cross test for speed.

GoDaddy's P-3 Profiler
By , for WP 3.9.1

This was a great discovery, when my site kept going out for no apparent reason. When tech support mentioned a possible plug-in issue, I was also told that this one existed. Hopefully, it will provide the answers I need. So far, the charts and tables explaining usage for each plug-in make a big difference. You can't fix what you can't see!
