Top PHP Performance Tips for Ongoing Results

Whether you are a PHP developer or if you are hosting PHP applications, this blog is for you. This aims at doing performance checks at regular intervals. Some little steps to check the performance of any PHP based application that gives good result. Once you test the applications, it helps you to identify any drawbacks that can be rectified by making certain changes in the code.

On the other hand, if you are any PHP hosting company then performing these automatic checks will help you to identify the errors and solve them so that these don’t occur again thus able to handle more loads with the same base code.

As in other programming languages like as or Ruby, there are certain techniques that render constant results in the same way in PHP certain tips are useful for continuous delivery. In our today’s blog, we have discussed some important tips related to PHP performance that excel in generating continuous results.

Tips from Experts:

  • PHP compilation time:  A PHP app must have up to 66% of the compilation time. Let’s understand this in  a simple way , every web request processed by PHP engine is put together while standard PHP installation and again the same details are to be recollected when the next request arrives.
    This entire compilation time takes up to 66% of the overall execution time. If the files that are going to be compiled are optimized then it can reform the entire response time. You can also make changes in the PHP code or use PHP compilation caching along with PHP Accelerators.
    So, PHP developers must examine compilation time of their PHP code to know the code complexity while PHP application testers should keep an eye on changes in PHP compilation timings to know about any reversions as soon as possible and PHP Operators must use PHP Accelerator while deploying PHP code to increase its performance.
  • Improper Database Patterns:  These are common themes to be mentioned in the blog posts that mainly focus on Java & .NET applications and it is one of the common problem faced by PHP applications as well where a similar SQL is executed various number of times as per the request or data is requested with multiple SQLs rather than rectifying a single SELECT statement.
    To identify these type of bad database patterns, just have a look at the number of database executions and correlate them with the transactions as well as total database time. So, PHP developers can check the statements that are really executed by the code as well  as third party tools used to access the code.
    Database engineers can monitor SQL executions from PHP and then optimize the SQL statements in the code. They can also suggest some solution related to SQL coding or saved methods instead of manually executing hundreds of SQL queries.
    For those executing the tasks, can check for any load related database access patterns that are queried by static data  and PHP operators can watch for spikes in # SQL executions and identify if that relates to the problems occurred in the database.

Applying these tips and some more, we are sure that certain PHP errors can be solved easily thus rendering continuous delivery. For more related tips regarding bug fixing in PHP, get advice from expert PHP developers at Softqube Technologies, a PHP development Company India.
