Support » Plugin: OMGF | Host Google Fonts Locally » Completely wrecked my resources

  • I run a very optimized, very fine tuned page. My TTFB was very high so I needed to remove some connections. I downloaded this on a whim to test if it was my external connections causing the long TTFB. It took my TTFB from 2.8 seconds down to 1.2 seconds, however, it increased my total page load time by 0.3 seconds, AND tripled my resources. I run over 70 plugins on my site. With the exception of the high TTFB (that is a simple resolve that I have gotten down to 340ms now) my site loads in 1.9 seconds without the plugin, and 2.2 seconds with it. I use on average 29MB of RAM for those 1.9 seconds to load the page. It’s okay, my server has 262144MB (256GB) of ram. When I installed this plugin, it sky rocketed to 86MB! That’s 3x your throughput. The ONLY way you can remove the high RAM usage is to BUY their plugin. This is just a roundabout bad way to do business. JUST DO IT YOURSELF, IT TAKES YOU MINUTES AND YOU WON’T SACRIFICE YOUR ENTIRE WEBSITE.

    What led you to this conclusion? I’m pretty sure I don’t advertise anywhere that the Pro version uses less RAM. I agree, that would be weird.

    Obviously, this is a bug, or maybe an incompatibility with another plugin you’re using causing loops, explaing the high memory usage.

    It’s a shame you felt the need to immediately write a 1 star review, instead of allowing me to help you through the support forum.

    It took my TTFB from 2.8 seconds down to 1.2 seconds, however, it increased my total page load time by 0.3 seconds.

    Are these averages, or results from one test? A 300ms difference in loading time can also be explained by other factors. Many visitors maybe?

    If OMGF chopped your TTFB in half, your review title ‘wrecked my site’ seems a bit exaggerated. Don’t you agree?

    Anyway, head over to the support forum if you’re willing to try and fix this.

    Enjoy the rest of your day.
