xhprof for PHP7

Build Status Build status

XHProf is a function-level hierarchical profiler for PHP and has a simple HTML based navigational interface. The raw data collection component is implemented in C (as a PHP extension). The reporting/UI layer is all in PHP. It is capable of reporting function-level inclusive and exclusive wall times, memory usage, CPU times and number of calls for each function. Additionally, it supports ability to compare two runs (hierarchical DIFF reports), or aggregate results from multiple runs.

This version supports PHP7

PHP Version

  • 7.0
  • 7.1

git clone ./xhprof

    Options       Defaults Version Explain
xhprof.output_dir   "" All Output directory
xhprof.sampling_interval   100000 >= v2.* Sampling interval to be used by the sampling profiler, in microseconds
xhprof.sampling_depth   INT_MAX >= v2.* Depth to trace call-chain by the sampling profiler
xhprof.collect_additional_info   0 >= v2.1 Collect mysql_query, curl_exec internal info. The default is 0. Open value is 1

xhprof.collect_additional_info = 1


  • XHPROF_FLAGS_NO_BUILTINS do not profile builtins
  • XHPROF_FLAGS_CPU gather CPU times for funcs
  • XHPROF_FLAGS_MEMORY gather memory usage for funcs



    "main()" => array(
        "wt" => 237,
        "ct" => 1,
        "cpu" => 100,
  • wt The number of times the function was called
  • ct The execution time of a function method is time consuming
  • cpu The CPU time consumed by the function method execution
  • mu Memory used by function methods. The call is zend_memory_usage to get the memory usage
  • pmu Peak memory used by the function method. The call is zend_memory_peak_usage to get the memory




$mysqli = new mysqli("localhost", "my_user", "my_password", "user");
$result = $mysqli->query("SELECT * FROM user LIMIT 10");
Output data
mysqli::query#SELECT * FROM user LIMIT 10


Convert preprocessing placeholders for actual parameters, more intuitive analytic performance (does not change the zend execution process)

$_sth = $db->prepare("SELECT * FROM user where userid = :id and username = :name");
$_sth->execute([':id' => '1', ':name' => 'admin']);
$data1 = $_sth->fetch();

$_sth = $db->prepare("SELECT * FROM user where userid = ?");
$data2 = $_sth->fetch();
Output data
PDOStatement::execute#SELECT * FROM user where userid = 1 and username = admin
PDOStatement::execute#SELECT * FROM user where userid = 1


$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "");
$output = curl_exec($ch);
