I haven’t taken the time yet to disable the miniprofiler, and I occasionally glance up at it as I’m popping around adjusting things and posting test messages. I’d like to be able to make some intelligent judgements on performance by looking at it, but without knowing more about the expected ranges of timings I should be seeing, it’s not hugely more useful to me in judging site responsiveness than my eyes are.
I know I’m probably missing out on stuff and that there are lots of ways I could be taking advantage of the miniprofiler and its detail output if I were debugging, but I’m no good at that stuff (which is tending to be a recurring theme in my posts here! ).
For example, I just did a shift-refresh on my forum’s front page, and I got a single line in the miniprofiler of 79.9ms:
Is that…is that good? I think what that’s telling me is that it takes longer to render and paint the page in my browser than it takes to generate it, so that’s good, assuming I’m reading that right.
/admin, I see two lines, one to get
/admin/dashboard at 23.9ms and one to get
/admin/dashboard/problems at 34.7ms. This seems quick—is it? Clicking around on messages, I get varying times; 300.9ms, 214.4ms, 156.9ms, 317.9ms, all executing action
Can one of you fine folks toss out some rough guidelines for what numbers we should be shooting at in the miniprofiler, and what would indicate a “fast” site versus one that’s struggling?
