I just randomly stumbled across this plugin and it is excellent. Very similar to Query Monitor, but much simpler and easy to read all the data. If you want to monitor all your performance factors but Query Monitor is a bit overkill, this is a great option.
If yo need something lighter or not as in depth as Query Monitor, this is the plugin to use.
It is much easier to view this data than in Query Monitor because Query Monitor outputs a lot more data in a much larger interface.
I’ve used this plugin for a little over a year. No bugs, no issues and is increases development workflow for sure.
