What would you like to do?
WordPress: Times how long it takes each filter and action to run and displays results at the end of the page. Quick and dirty.
<?php
/**
* This little class records how long it takes each WordPress action or filter
* to execute which gives a good indicator of what hooks are being slow.
* You can then debug those hooks to see what hooked functions are causing problems.
*
* This class does NOT time the core WordPress code that is being run between hooks.
* You could use similar code to this that doesn't have an end processor to do that.
