I am looking at reported speed issue in admin category manager, where some categories can take up to 2 minutes of load time after the tree view was clicked. There are now errors anywhere, simply just (sometimes) take very long to load.
Since I had never used xdebug profiler (cachegrind) result inside PHPStorm, I figured this is a great opportunity to try that out, and see how PHPSTorm deals with the data.
However, I have run into an issue: The profiled page load never seems to end, or is just simply taking soooo long to profile, it s simply not viable to use.
I initiated the page load of a category (profiled) 12 hours ago, and it is still loading! - that is simply not practical. I can see the cachegrind file is still being written by using a
watch ls -la on terminal
So, my question(s) are:
Has someone done this, using xdebug profiler, specifically on category admin page?
Is the issue directly related to my environment, or has someone else have this happen?
Any advise, or suggestions profiling another way? (I am aware of AOE_Profiler, and use it a lot, just wanted to try using xdebug profiler)
In case it is of importance, my xdebug ini is this:
zend_extension=xdebug.so xdebug.remote_enable=1 xdebug.remote_connect_back=1 xdebug.remote_port=9000 xdebug.remote_handler="dbgp" xdebug.remote_autostart=1 xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger=On xdebug.profiler_enable=0 xdebug.profiler_output_dir=/var/www/html/var/profiler xdebug.max_nesting_level=200 xdebug.profiler_output_name="%R-%u.trace" xdebug.profiler_append=On
Directly after this question, I am going to attempt profile another admin section, to see if that works faster.
PS: this is done on a core i7 CPU, with 12G memory, so should be more than enough processing power.
