Techie Tip – WordPress Plugin P3 Profiler

by Andrea Cinnamond on July 11, 2012

This plugincreates a profile of your WordPress site’s plugins’ performance by measuring their impact on your site’s load time.  Often times, WordPress sites load slowly because of poorly configured plugins or because there are so many of them. By using the P3 plugin, you can narrow down anything causing slowness on your site.

This plugin uses the canvas element for drawing charts and requires requires Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, or IE9 or later. This plugin will not work in IE8 or lower.

You can search for and install this plugin from within your WordPress installation.

I ran the tool over a new website I have and here are the results. Their is a lot of data and would be great if you had a site that had many plugins installed. It only took a few minutes to scan the site and the report popped up right away. You can email the results to someone else so if you want someone to look at your data, it is very easy to send it to them.

Here is a screenshot of the report I got.
