Support » Plugin: Custom Sidebars - Dynamic Widget Area Manager » Slow admin ajax calls with plugin activated

  • We seem to have very slow admin-ajax calls with this plugin activated, appears to be very resource heavy.

    Seems to be this call : TheLib::_sess_init in /inc/external/wpmu-lib/inc/class-thelib.php

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Hello there @gfoley,

    hope you’re doing good and thanks for reaching us! 🙂

    This can be happening if you create a very large amount of custom sidebars with lots of conditionals and widgets.

    Is there a URL where we could see this in action?

    Also, how many custom sidebars do you use? Please advise!

    Thank you,
    Dimitris

    Hi Dimitris,

    Thanks for the response!

    We have 16 custom sidebars added with 3 – 4 widgets in each. Would you call that a large amount?

    Do you know of anyway to reduce the time or resources used by the call to TheLib::_sess_init

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    Hey @gfoley,

    Hope you’re well.

    We are investigating and making some tests about the issue, I want to ask one more question. Are you referring the problem happening on all ajax requests on the site or only related Custom Sidebars?

    Cheers,
    Oguz

    Hi Oguz,

    We first noticed a slower wp-admin so started looking through NewRelic to see what seemed to be the issue, thats what brought me to Custom Sidebars seeming to use lots of resources, specifically when calling TheLib::_sess_init

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    Hello @gfoley

    We haven’t heard back from developers yet, so I’ve already pinged them again on this. Me or another colleague of mine will keep you posted here about any development on this. 🙂

    Warm regards,

    Hello there @gfoley

    There’s no update from our developers’ end. I’ll ping them again on that, I really can’t provide any estimated time of a possible fix though, hope you understand!
    Despite that, I’ll keep you posted here as soon as we’ve got some valuable insights.

    Thank you,
    Dimitris
