(vB4) What's Slowing Down My Forum? (Slow Plugins Finder)
Mod Version: 1.00, by vBNinja (Coder/Designer) vBNinja is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2017 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 25
Released: 14 Apr 2017 Last Update: 14 Apr 2017 Downloads: 84
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

Interesting plugin, definitely useful for debugging purposes and finding out which plugins are causing the forum to slow down.

Yes the new version works.

Great add-on. It allowed me to find 10 add-ons that were each adding more than 10% to page loads and that I didn't need - a couple that were only for older versions of vBulletin and a couple I didn't realize were still installed.

If they still had mod of the month, this would have been worthy of a nomination and vote.

Thank you.

Great plugin. I got it run.

The results are surprising. A plugin about subforum columns cause the forum slow. I deactivated it.

Thank you so much

@vBNinja Can we safely run the test without closing the forum first?

This product gives a lot of strange results with plugins having significant impact on scripts where they aren't supposed to be used at all.
