(vB4) What's Slowing Down My Forum? (Slow Plugins Finder)

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 33
Released: 14 Apr 2017 Last Update: 14 Apr 2017 Downloads: 160
Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

One of the major causes of unhappy members/visitors is a slow forum!

Click here for the vB3 version

Since vB doesn't have all the necessary features out of the box, every forum has dozens of plugins installed. However, some of those plugins can cause more bad than good by significantly increasing load time due lack of optimization / poor code.

I developed this AdminCP tool to help find those plugins and speed up your forums.

It works by analyzing page load time in the most popular pages (activity.php, blog.php, content.php, forum.php, forumdisplay.php, member.php, profile.php, showthread.php, usercp.php), enabling 1 product at a time and comparing it to load times with all plugins disabled.

All of this happens without actually disabling any products/plugins, so no need to worry about your forum breaking while the test is running.

Installation is simple, upload the contents in the "UPLOAD" folder to the forum root and import the XML file in the "XML" folder.
You will see a new tab in the AdminCP called "Slow Plugins". From there you can view previous test results and run new tests.

Let me know if you have questions/comments/suggestions/feedback

Also, please remember to "Mark As Installed" and rate for support & future updates.

Enjoy

Anyone who's renamed admincp is going to have lots of issues with this, as far as errors. This after putting the correct "showplugins.php" script into the renamed file.

Example:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function array_replace() in /home/content/22/5444333/html/(newacpname)/slowplugins.php on line 425

Yes, that one and another, while the scan is being run.

"Warning: array_combine() [function.array-combine]: Both parameters should have at least 1 element in [path]/(newacpname)/slowplugins.php on line 134"


These look like just, php version issue warnings. But, I don't get any results listed, from the testing when it is finished. Just the warning I first posted.

It tests plugins. Doesn't matter where they are used.

Thank you djbaxter, I didn't note content.php in the pages list which vBNinja wrote in his post, that is why I asked.

It seems to give added time for addons that are not even called on the php file tested ?

Yes the results make no sense at all.

I have decided to test the product further on my htaccess protected test site, to avoid any potential disturbance due to users activity, and I did increase the number of tests to 100 to improve accuracy (according to the plugin instruction).

I did two series of tests, each took over an hour. And the variations of the results between the two series of tests were so large that it is not possible to consider this product accurate.

Don't use this product, it is not reliable.

Can someone audit this plugin for potential malicious code?
The nonsensical results of this plugin and the apathy of the author are worrying me a lot.
