How do we know that our WordPress system is running well and there are no problems vis-a-vis the hosting account?
Two plugins can help out in this task, let’s take a look at them.
WP System Health
This plugin provides a new Dashboard Widget (limit to administrators) that displays information provided by 5 different categories:
- System – basic server information and WordPress PHP memory utilization
- PHP – most important PHP configuration values, that influence WordPress
- WordPress – several configurable values and transport capabilities
- Translation – shows all loaded and utilized language files
- Database – current database utilization status
Furthermore the Plugin also introduces a new Dashboard Sub Page, Memory Usage information at Admin Footer and if permitted Server Storage Quota at Dashboard. Additional you can switch on the performance values HTML comment output at your visitors pages to measure your system. The new Dashboard Administration Submenu entry allows deactivation of several features if not necessary.
TPC! Memory Usage
TPC! Memory Usage allows WordPress administrators to view the current and peak memory usage of the application. This is extremely helpful when testing new plugins, or if there are a lot of modifications, plugins, or large language files.
A strategic dashboard widget will provide a snapshot which includes the following information:
- Current memory usage
- Current peak memory usage
- Logging for all-time highest memory usage
- File logging for memory usage at checkpoints, when usage exceeds set threshold, both, or none.
- Ability to add custom checkpoints (checkpoint – a WordPress core, language or plugin action at which memory usage is measured)
- Send e-mail notification if memory usage reaches threshold setting
- Customize permissions to show certain users the memory usage widget and display mechanisms
- View PHP and WordPress memory limit (defined in wp-settings.php)
- View PHP version, User Agent tag, server software information
A detailed system information page allows you to keep a close watch on:
- Server, host, and client information
