Is there any way I can easily test performance/load for my Magento app other than Mage-Perftest?

  • if you want to get a bit more specific in looking at the Magento app itself then try profiler. Nov 20, 2014 at 10:10
  • Sorry, which profiler are you talking about? Nov 20, 2014 at 12:04

Well, speed/performance depends on a number of different factors, each of which can have it's own slowdowns, limitations and optimizations.

  • Thanks! I'd really like to identify which element in my code is causing the bottleneck. Is it my sql queries, the enabled modules, etc? Nov 20, 2014 at 10:02
  • In that case I would recommond NewRelic, it's free for a week I think, afterwards you can still use it but features are limited (and you can get a free shirt). You just add a little bit of code on your website and that's it. You can then monitor which classes have long loading times. But as I mentioned earlier, there are many ways to speed up Magento. Other options include caching (FPC), and simply adding more memory.

  • Another option would be to check the MySQL long query logs, more info here: ducea.com/2006/11/06/identifying-mysql-slow-queries

  • Another comprehensive, completely free tool for monitoring general server health is Munin. Nov 20, 2014 at 12:55
