Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » woocommerce admin-ajax.php get refreshed fragments slow wait times

  • Hi, read a few posts around but nothing seems to address this issue.

    In early stages of build with new woocommerce site ran pingdom pagespeed test on posh tiles noticed a long wait time for admin-ajax.php

    ran GTmetrix and showing

    POST action woocommerce_get_refreshed_fragments

    disabled plugins etc all the normal actions still showing long wait times

    Checked previous sites built with different themes host & plugins but all woocommerce and same issue.

    Does anyone have any insight or solutions as adding 1 -2 seconds IMO needlessly waiting

    From what I can tell it seems to be something to with the live ajax shopping cart if you can live without it and replace with a static icon then go for it?

    theres an interesting thread over on woothemes that may be of interest to some of you if anyone does find a better solution

    could you still post it here? cheers

    Any update on this? I get this on one of my sites with WooCommerce, but not the other.

    Same here. Is there an easy way to kill all these shopping cart features without those expensive rip-off WooCommerce plugins?

    SebH not sure what you mean there..

    FYI all, we’ve removed the use of admin-ajax, so ajax speed should be improved in 2.4.

    woocommerce_get_refreshed_fragments updates the cart widget, and other cart areas used by themes. This prevents static caching plugins from caching carts.

    Well I use 2.4.6 and do have this problem. Any other areas to look for that might call this cart widget?

    Hi SebH

    Have you tried disabling WordPress Heartbeat API to see if that makes a difference? See:

    admin-ajax isn’t used on the frontend any longer Seb. How are you even sure its woocommerce_get_refreshed_fragments in your case? Are you viewing console?

    Hm, the waterfall in

    Could a Woocommerce plugin be calling it? How would I find out which one?

    If you view your site, open up console in chrome, network tab, XHR, it will list all ajax requests. If you want to see time it takes.

    Chrome console doesnt show it, but shows it. It outputs

    The site is – I am clueless. There is also so much server wait time (might be a different issue)

    Hi SebH,

    As already posted earlier – have you tried disabling WordPress Heartbeat API to see if that makes a difference? You can add the following snippet into your functions.php file:

    add_action( 'init', 'stop_heartbeat', 1 );
    function stop_heartbeat() {
