    Why do you say that “P3 Profiler is next to useless”??

      The P3 profiler is next to useless for a LOT of reasons. The number 1 reason is that it itself consumes a lot of resources. The number 2 reason is it’s innacurate – it didn’t report that Datafeedr was causing my site slowdown for example (because my API license had expired as it turned out, causing 2x 30s HHTP Request timeouts). The number 3 reason is that when it DOES successfully identify the correct plugin that is causing performance problems, it doesn’t identify the source of the problem – e.g. database table scan, to much data retrieved, php loops, function name or anything. It’s crap.

          Well there you go then – to be honest, I’m not surprised. It was made by the guys over at GoDaddy and while they’re good at domain names, they’re not so good at plugin development.

    I tried Xdebug profiler with WinCacheGrind but none of the cachegrind files would load properly. They might be too big? They average 8-12mb and I saw a page that suggested 8mb is about the limit. Any suggestions of a workaround or other viewer to use (on Windows)?

    I’m trying to get this installed, but I’m not getting past these two ->
    Run: ./configure
    Run: make

    It says throws an error at the first command:
    Check for supported PHP versions… configure: error: not supported. Need a PHP version >= 7.0.0 and < 7.3.0 (found 5.4.16)

    I've disabled 5.4.16 in Plesk but that doesn't seems to work

      You should ensure you generate the script from your OWN phpinfo.txt file. Instructions included above for how to generate that. Don’t follow my steps, as they’re particular to that specific server.

      Once you generate your phpinfo file, copy/paste the contents to the link above where it will then provide specific instructions for your server.

      Is this 98% time used by unserialize?

      That probably reflects using an object cache?
