PHP “Profiling” as a debugging tool for Joomla!

Posted by metamodguy in PHP , development

PHP logoOver the last couple of days I have been doing final testing on an update to MetaMod Pro, introducing compatibility with JoomlArt’s wonderful T3v2 template framework. Something I noticed was that pages were taking 5-10 seconds longer to load in the T3v2 template than they were with any of the other templates I have installed.

If this was Java I’d be reaching for the Java profiler in NetBeans. But Joomla is in PHP... I’d never come across that kind of profiler for PHP before...

This is how I tackled the problem and found a great new tool for site diagnostics in Joomla.
