[Plugin: Memory Viewer] Interpreting Results (5 posts)

    Great concept for a plugin but can you please help me interpret the results? I installed the plugin on a slow loading site and identified 2 hooks that were taking much longer to load than the others, see screen capture, (although a little confused bu the E-5 at the end of the time?). I expanded the queries but how do I identify exactly what is causing the lag? I disabled all non-essential plugins but this didn;t make any significant difference.

    BTW, I noticed that the page continued to load even after the results were displayed so I guess the total load time isn't relevant?

    Many thanks,
    Benz1

    Hi Benz1! Sorry for the delay in getting back with you on your questions.

    I installed the plugin on a slow loading site and identified 2 hooks that were taking much longer to load than the others, see screen capture, (although a little confused bu the E-5 at the end of the time?).

    The numbers you highlighted, such as 8.79764556885E-5, is actually:

    8.79764556885 x 10^-5, or, 0.0000879764556885

    So, those two numbers are probably the fastest running hooks.

    Great concept for a plugin but can you please help me interpret the results?

    It looks like your site is being executed on the server for half of a second, which is not really too terrible.

    BTW, I noticed that the page continued to load even after the results were displayed so I guess the total load time isn't relevant?

    What is sounds like it happening is that your WordPress site is being delivered by your server in about half a second, but then your WordPress site is calling external files, which may be taking longer to load. For example, you may have a WordPress plugin that is loading external javascript files or css files. Your computer still has to download these files, however they don't get parsed at the same time that your WordPress script is running.

    When you site is loading, in your browser's status bar you should see what files are being downloaded. Do you see any external files being download? Most likely they are causing your WordPress site to load slowly, and not your specific server or WordPress installation.

    Thanks Brad, that's very helpful. Yes, there is a plugin calling external content which would explain the page continuing to load.

    In general, is there any way to identify what is being loaded during each hook or is it just a matter of trying to identify something in the query or function?

    Many thanks,
    Benz1

    There may be a way to check what is being loaded during each hook, but so much is probably going on the data would be difficult to sift through. If you're having a problem with content loading slowly from other servers, I would suggest running your site through the test available at:

    http://tools.pingdom.com/

    When you run the test, it will show you a listing of all files being downloaded, such as html js css, and will give you a run down on how long it takes each file to download.

    Run your domain through the tests, and let us know what you get!

    Hi Benz1, were you able to see any interesting data from using the tool at tools.pingdom.com ?
