Great Way to Improve Site Performance!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I found this on a client's site and I'm a huge fan! I'm trying to decipher which of the 47 plugins I have to tell him to cut to speed his site up… and now I don't have to fiddle around with turning plugins off and on on my development setup. A very handy tool—I'll use it on all of my difficult site improvement projects!

A great tool for debugging
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a good plugin to have in your toolbox for diagnosing site issues.

It can help you see what plugins take up what resources (memory, database calls, load time, etc). It's important to learn to debug your site the right way too using WP_DEBUG...you'll also find problem plugins that way as well.

Since I develop plugins, it helps me improve the overall quality by testing and benchmarking. We build a lot of testing into our plugins while we're developing them, but I think it's important to use this to compare them to other plugins to get an overall picture. Also, if you have a plugin that normally loads quickly but all of a sudden it's taking up a huge amount of resources, it can point you to server or site configuration issues.

When you use this, it's important to run tests several times and to put the data in context. It's also important to be aware that this can have some false positives because many plugins have additional functionality in the admin area compared to when you're logged out.

I also highly recommend using Query Monitor for getting really detailed info about which plugins are causing issues.

Isn't it ironic
By , for WP 4.1.1

I find it so ironic that this plugin is so helpful, and yet it's created by godaddy, one of the worst companies that I've experienced (several times) when it comes to their hosting and the customer support for hosting.

I remove one star just because it has the godaddy name on there!

Helps a lot
By , for WP 4.0

Love this one.

Very helpful...
By , for WP 3.7.1

This really helped pinpoint some of the plugins that were bogging down my site. Really helpful to see where the memory hogs are.

I tried using it on a WPEngine site and it didn't seem to work at all? It may be because of how WPEngine has their hosting set up but it didn't test any plugins except for itself when I tried it on multiple occasions.

Awesome plugin, thanks!

helpful, but...
By , for WP 3.6

work but dialog is behind the gray layer so that I can't handle with mouse(P31.4.1 + IE10, firefox22.0 , chrome29).
To show more faster , I hope many detail about response speed to obtain.

Works just like it says
By , for WP 3.5.2

First, being an anti-GoDaddy person, I will say I am impressed with this plugin. It did exactly what it said. This plugin didn't help resolve my bigger issue, but it definitely told me what plugins I should probably let go.

The 4 star is not because it didn't solve my problem, it's because I'm not a fan of godaddy for hosting. Sorry guys! But I am quite impressed with this plugin! Thanks

Great Saves time.
By , for WP 3.5.1

When you are having very slow loading. You can determine which plug in is causing the slow down and replace it with another one.

Great Utility to have
By , for WP 3.5.1

P3 Profiler is a great utility to have. It helps pinpoint why your site load time may be slow with nice graphs and charts. The history feature is good to have. It would be nice though if there was a way to schedule scans.

Helpful to evaluate whether to keep / ditch plugins
By , for WP 3.5.1

I like using this tool to gauge how much impact a particular plugin is having when in the context of all other current plugins and themes. It helps to decide whether a plugin is worth keeping or ditching or perhaps searching for an alternative and trying that instead.
