How to check performance of WordPress dashboard
We run a Woocommerce shop. The frontend is pretty ok, but the dashboard is really slow. The database is quite large (>2 GB) containing around 140.000 users and more than 50.0000 orders. I checked the performance on a staging server using the same theme and plugins, but a new and clean database. Dashboard performance did not improve significantly. Monitoring plugins is not easy. The P3 Profiler plugin hasn’t been updated for years. Probably not a good way to go. The Query Monitor shows valuable information. However, measurements of loading time differ too much between reloads to use it. I then check performance using a temparary access plugin. It creates a token so that tools like Pingdom can check the pagespeed. Do you know a better way to perform these tests?
