Plugin that quickly enables XHProf profiling for your CakePHP application.

Requirements

  • PHP 5.3+
  • CakePHP 2.3+
  • XHProf

Installation

First, make sure you enabled the xhprof extension and downloaded phacility/xhprof.

Manual

  1. Download http://github.com/renan/CakePHP-XHProf/zipball/master
  2. Unzip the downloaded file
  3. Move the contents to Plugin/XHProf

Git Submodule

git submodule add git://github.com/renan/CakePHP-XHProf.git Plugin/XHProf
git submodule update --init

Git Clone

git clone git://github.com/renan/CakePHP-XHProf.git Plugin/XHProf

Composer / Packagist

Extra information can be found at Packagist.

This would install the latest 0.1 version to Plugin/XHProf:

{
    "require": {
        "renan/cakephp-xhprof": "0.1.*"
    }
}

You might want to use "require-dev" if you only plan to use this for development.

Configuration

The basic configuration consists of loading the plugin and pointing where the xhprof_lib directory is located on your system.

On your Config/bootstrap.php file:

// Load XHProf Plugin
CakePlugin::load('XHProf');

// XHProf Configuration
Configure::write('XHProf', array(
    'library' => '/usr/local/Cellar/php54-xhprof/270b75d/xhprof_lib',
));

Options:

  • library: Path to your xhprof_lib directory (required)
  • namespace: Namespace to save your xhprof runs, default is your application directory name
  • flags: Flags passed over to profiler, default is 0. For a list of flags visit: http://php.net/xhprof.constants.php
  • ignored_functions: Array of functions to ignore, default is call_user_func and call_user_func_array
  • replaceRunId: Placeholder used to replace the run id in order to display a link in the page, set false to disable, default is %XHProfRunId%. Read the usage for more information

All options example:

Configure::write('XHProf', array(
    'library' => '/usr/local/Cellar/php54-xhprof/270b75d/xhprof_lib',
    'namespace' => 'myapp',
    'flags' => XHPROF_FLAGS_CPU | XHPROF_FLAGS_MEMORY,
    'ignored_functions' => array(
        'my_function',
        'my_other_function',
    ),
    'replaceRunId' => false,
));

Usage

Dispatcher Filter

Just include the XHProfDispatcher in your dispatcher filters list on Config/bootstrap.php:

Configure::write('Dispatcher.filters.xhprof', 'XHProf.XHProfDispatcher');

By default it will try to replace %XHProfRunId% with the saved run id from the page's output. It allows you to include a link to the xhprof report on the page.

On your View/Layouts/default.ctp:

$url = sprintf(
    '/url/to/xhprof_html/index.php?run=%s&source=%s',
    Configure::read('XHProf.replaceRunId'),
    Configure::read('XHProf.namespace')
);
echo $this->Html->link('XHProf Output', $url);
DebugKit Panel

If you are using DebugKit, you can use the provided panel here.

Make sure you include html config of the URL endpoint of the xhprof_html folder:

Configure::write('XHProf', array(
    'library' => '/usr/local/Cellar/php54-xhprof/270b75d/xhprof_lib',
    'html' => 'http://path/to/xhprof_html',
));

Then you can add the panel in your DebugKit components setup:

public $components = array(
    'DebugKit.Toolbar' => array(
        'panels' => array('XHProf.XHProf')
    ),
);

Done. It should now display the new panel with the link to the result of this page output.

Manual

This method is very useful when profiling specific points on your code. For that, just use the XHProf class to assist you.

Example:

// Declare the class location
App::uses('XHProf', 'XHProf.Lib');

// Start the profiler
XHProf::start();

// ... your application code

// Stop the profiler
// 1. Returning the profiler data
$data = XHProf::stop();

// 2. or Save the profiler data, returning the run id
$runId = XHProf::finish();

Note: There are two ways to stop the profiler as explained above. However only one can be used at each run.
