I have a heavy wordpress site, it loads a page in roughly 1 second on development, no newrelic.
on production, its using the latest 9.2 newrelic agent. and oops, 5.5 seconds load time for the same page. all the execution time is in php - as shown by … yes … nr. I wish it would just say ‘oops nr is eating 90% of your CPU, perhaps we better disabled ourself’.
disable the agent, and we’re back around the 1 second.
php 7.3 , latest wordrpess, big everything - big database, lots of plugins, documents, users.
I’d never seen performance fall off the cliff like that before. Not sure when newrelic introduced my performance drop, whether it was the 9.x release or some other time. but it’s super super super slow.
ps. this is the messiest forum software I’ve ever seen.wtf is this ‘help, my app is crashing’ nonesense
