WP System Health


This plugin provides a new Dashboard Widget (limit to administrators) that displays information provided by 5 different categories:

  1. System – basic server information and WordPress PHP memory utilization
  2. PHP – most important PHP configuration values, that influence WordPress
  3. WordPress – several configurable values and transport capabilities
  4. Translation – shows all loaded and utilized language files
  5. Database – current database utilization status

Furthermore the Plugin also introduces a new Dashboard Sub Page, Memory Usage information at Admin Footer and if permitted Server Storage Quota at Dashboard.
Additional you can switch on the performance values HTML comment output at your visitors pages to measure your system.
The new Dashboard Administration Submenu entry allows deactivation of several features if not necessary.

All WordPress related constants can be inspected. The amount ahs been adapted to WordPress 3.5.1 now.

Newly introduced you will find a CPU Usage History chart at your Dashboard. It will show the approx. last 2 minutes of server load.
This will be extended and fully configurable with next upcomming versions. If you don’t get any values shown, your provider may have disabled any type of performance functions.

The plugin is now fully translatable and gots as first shot a german translation (approx. 40% translated). Feel free to contribute your translations.

With all the provided information it’s easy to detect configuration issues, memory race problems and also to help somebody by just request some values.
I use this plugin normally as a “service desk” info point at my friends if something went wrong on their installations.

Remark: The current version provides database analysis at full spectrum only for normal WordPress installations. Multi Site installation analysis will follow with the next update.


This plugins will be restructed now and will require WordPress min version 3.5 with next upcomming updates.
