Profiling and DBase performance in Magento 2
Profiler is an integrated internal debugging tool. It is used for debugging in Magento. It plays an important part in the development of Magento. We have various debugging resources, including-New Antique, Xdebug, and so on. We can get valuable information using these tools and review our website with their vibrant graphical outputs. And these debuggers have little idea of your Magento application’s structure. The internal debugger in Magento is known as Profiler.
It helps us to collect various information about the controller, blocks, actions, events, models, and many more on different execution stages of the application. It also helps us in how long the Magento pages will be playing a part in the store. The Profiler tracks the time it took to execute the block of code also how many times the block of code was executed, and the memory it uses when making a Magento web page. It defines a code block, which slows page loading.
Why is Profiler needed?
Every system’s efficiency slows down after loading a lot of data and extensions and also by creating a lot of logs for it. You need to let the profiler know what’s slowing down your success on Magento 2. On the server-side, Magento Profiler detects the performance problems.
Magento is supported by three forms of profiler:
How to enable Magento Profiler
To enable and debug the Magento Profiler, follow the steps below-
Step 1: Add this line of code to the.htaccess file in the magento / pub/.htaccess root directory of Magento.
SetEnv MAGE_PROFILER <type>
e.g. SetEnv MAGE_PROFILER html
Step 2: Use the following command to access the Developer mode.
php bin/magento dev:profiler:enable <type>
Else you can use .htaccess file and remove hashtag (#) to uncomment the developer command in it.
Step 3: Eventually, compile the folder and refresh it.
Magento store is a very time-consuming process. More specifically, if we say then, its database interaction basically is the most time-consuming. Magento Database optimization is an essential task for maintaining the Magento site. Maintaining and cleaning the old records on Magento Cache and Log will boost the efficiency of your Magento database.
Instead of monitoring, Magento saves several databases. There must be a monitoring module for the e-commerce program. If something gets wrong, then it shows the information. Below are a few points for enhancing efficiency in the database-
- Optimized database queries.
- Unused data need to be periodically cleaned up for better and better performance.
- Configure database server settings and limits (e.g.-memory configuration, sort buffer optimization, query cache, etc.).
