PHP troubleshooting

What is PHP troubleshooting?

PHP troubleshooting refers to the process of identifying and eliminating performance hotspots in PHP applications. PHP troubleshooting allows you to resolve performance issues caused by inefficient PHP code, bad database access patterns, and other conditions resulting in slow loading pages and a poor user experience.

Protecting the digital experience with PHP troubleshooting

Instead of purchasing more hardware when problems arise, you can use PHP troubleshooting to improve your application code, minimize resource consumption, and optimize your entire application delivery chain. With a powerful PHP troubleshooting tool, you can protect the performance and digital experience of your WordPress blogs, Magento applications, Drupal websites, and other PHP applications.

What is digital experience? Digital experience is the user experience your developers, architects, and UX testing teams work so hard to create for your customers—the impressions your website or mobile app leaves on visitors. PHP and JavaScript troubleshooting tools can help your teams find and fix server- and client-side issues to ensure that users of your digital touchpoints are left with a positive impression of your services and your brand.

Implementing PHP troubleshooting with debuggers and profilers

Through PHP troubleshooting, you can find out which PHP scripts are taking the longest to run and answer other questions you may have about the performance of your code. PHP debuggers and profilers can be used to identify slow-running functions, inefficient database queries, and other possible targets for optimization. The problem with relying on these types of tools for PHP troubleshooting, however, is that they can add significant overhead to your server and negatively impact website performance.

In production and integration environments, APM tools are a better option for troubleshooting PHP applications. With the right APM solution, you can uncover the same types of issues as you would with a profiler, such as inefficient PHP code or poorly designed database queries, and monitor other components involved in the delivery of your application including third-party APIs and content providers.

Understand where service calls originate in your PHP code.
