Stack middleware for Xhprof library

dev-master 2016-02-23 22:42 UTC


This package contains a StackPHP middleware that activates XHProf profiling by leveraging the lox/xhprof library.

Just by sending xhprof=1 on the GET request, XhprofMiddleware will generate the profiling for the requested URL and append a link to the results to the response.


xhprof extension must be loaded. Otherwise an exception will be thrown.


The XhprofMiddleware accepts an array of options:

  • output_dir: the directory used to store XHProf runs.



use Avs\Stack\XhprofMiddleware;

require_once __DIR__ . '../vendor/autoload.php';

$app = new Silex\Application();

$stack = (new Stack\Builder())
    ->push(XhprofMiddleware::class, ['output_dir' => '/secret/xhprof']);

$app = $stack->resolve($app);

$request = Request::createFromGlobals();
$response = $app->handle($request)->send();

$app->terminate($request, $response);


The recommended way to install XhprofMiddleware is through Composer:

    "require": {
        "vilartoni/stackphp-xhprof": "dev-master"

Note: as this package depends on lox/xhprof which is in dev stability, you may need to allow it explicitly in case you're not already using it.

    "require": {
        "vilartoni/stackphp-xhprof": "dev-master",
        "lox/xhprof": "@dev"
