    Hi Francis,

    there are several ways to do so.

    1) You could paste this snippet into any template files of your theme (i.e. footer.php) our your functions.php.

    <?php echo get_num_queries(); ?> queries in <?php timer_stop(1); ?> seconds.

    On the frontend you will see something like:
    “40 queries in 0.248 seconds”.
    You can compare these numbers with the index on the autoload field and without.

    But this only refers to the page in question.

    2) A better way is to install a plugin like and monitor the querytimes of the whole WP-Database.

    Keep in mind, this plugin works best with big wp_option tables, because the query time does not grow the bigger the table gets.
    You won’t see much difference on sites with small wp_option tables.

    Hope this helps.

    We also have a blog post (in german only) on how to speed up your WP-Site for high traffic pages, there might be some things for you in there:

    Kind regards,
    Matthias from RADIBOXES
