top for WordPress
An XHProf-based WordPress code profiler. Gives you real-time overview of your WordPress application's performance and can be used in production due to very low overhead. Find out your slow pages and functions, optimize and profit from faster WordPress websites.
Since we need the profiler to kick in as early as possible, the following should be added to your wp-config.php soon after
ABSPATH is available but before
wp-settings.php is required.
It is safe to call
wptop_enable in any practical place. Using it in
index.php is, however, discouraged, since updates will erase your change.
/** Turn on real-time profiling using wptop */ require ABSPATH . 'wp-content/plugins/wptop/enable.php'; wptop_enable();
wptop_enable accepts the following array parameters:
bool) tells the profiler to gather memory information,
bool) tells the profiler to gather CPU time data,
falseby default, not recommended in production
bool) tells the profiler whether to profile built-in PHP functions or not,
So for example,
wptop_enable( array( 'memory' => false, 'cpu' => false, 'builtins' => false ) ) will have the profiler not generate any memory data, CPU time data or profile built-in PHP functions. Sane defaults are recommended.
A profiled request will store at least 200kb of data in the database in raw format. A cronjob will clean these up freeing most of it.
