Magento 2 performance comparison after disabling unnecessary third-party extensions

Overview

I ran some tests to determine the speed impact of removing unnecessary third-party extensions, per this article: https://www.integer-net.com/make-magento-2-small-again/ The TL;DR is that pages loaded about 10% faster (with full_page and block_html disabled) with the unnecessary extensions removed.

Extensions I removed:

Test environment

Magento 2.3.3 Open Source with a number of third-party extensions installed. Running on a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9 MacBook Pro on Warden. Ideally these tests would have been run on a Magento 2.3.3 site with sample data, but I don't have time for that at the moment.

Testing method

  • The full_page and block_html caches were disabled
  • Ran Apache Benchmark 3 times, with each run hitting each url 15 times. I selected the median load time of the 3 runs.
  • Did two full tests and posted both sets of results below
