Testers Wanted For PHP Performance Tracing Tool

May 13, 2020 7:49:34 PM / by Alexander Vinogradov




CloudLinux OS+, our newest operating system, includes a new performance tracing tool called PHP X-Ray for PHP-based content management systems that will be released in beta this month, May 2020. It will provide detailed information on performance bottlenecks in web sites that use content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. 

If a site has any slow WordPress plugins, slow queries, or database bottlenecks, this tool will help you identify them. Want to help us test it? If you do, just login to CLN and click on the PHP X-Ray beta testing banner. 


Performance Tracing With PHP X-Ray


We began developing PHP X-Ray after receiving a lot of requests from web hosting firms to help them diagnose issues with slow web sites. From what we saw, these performance issues were difficult to diagnose, and often drove web site owners to switch their hosting provider.

With PHP X-Ray, a pioneering solution with no real competition in the shared hosting market, hosters are no longer forced to diagnose such problems by hand. To free them from using an ad hoc jumble of command-line utilities, we developed PHP X-Ray to meet their needs. 


Troubleshooting Performance Problems


We at CloudLinux have developed PHP X-Ray specifically to troubleshoot performance issues in PHP-based web sites, such as: 

    • Slow plugins
    • Slow database queries
    • Slow functions
    • Slow external calls 


We want this new tool to be effective right out of the box, as well as trouble-free and easy to use. It will provide a detailed per-user view. 


Help Us Test This Tool


We at CloudLinux are seeking beta testers to help us refine PHP X-Ray. By becoming a beta tester, you’ll be able to help shape this new tool to meet your requirements. 

To beta test PHP X-Ray, just login to CLN and click on the PHP X-Ray beta testing banner. NOTE: you'll need CloudLinux OS license ordered directly from CloudLinux to participate in beta testing.
