The developers warn to have a backup before enabling this plugin’s features. They make it sound like failure is rare. I tested on a clone of live site and it nuked it. HTTP 500 error. The most difficult error to debug! Tested on a clean local site without problem.
However… this plugin is made for live sites. It’s made to debug problems that are most likely plugin or theme conflicts. Thus you do have to risk nuking your site. And if it does get nuked and even if you do have a backup, it’s still going to mean you have to take you site down for an uncomfortable period of time.
I think it’s safer to put your site in maintenance mode at a quieter time and debug normally.
And if you can’t afford any downtime for your site, this plugin is definitely not worth the risk. In that case, you should really be cloning your site to a test environment.
