See which plugins are slowing down your site. This plugin creates a performance report for your site.
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.
a really great useful plugin..
in my life first time I am amazed with any thing related with GoDaddy !! :)
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.
Accurate analysis of plugin resources used. Works very well.
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.
i love your extension. Please keep improving. e.g. split up "Other plugins"
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!
Very useful plugin. Thanks a lot.
With this plugin I could find out, that my theme is the problem and needs to much loadingtime.
This plugin is fantastic, and uses highly accurate and advanced methods for real profiling. Excellent.
