We search for a
performance in depth professional,
who is able to tune a production environment regarding php execution.
We need a real pro and engineer, who can
1) measure the current situation in terms of performance values E2E and especially on the server side, inside php, database, IO
2) share the report with your conclusions from the data
3) tweak the current configuration based on measured data
5) verify if change has required impact
6) redo previous if impact is not visible
Infrastructure is available to measure internationally via servers distributed worldwide,
also we can measure locally in the LAN.

gtmetrix, google pagespeed and other tools are not helping here!
They will only proof our situation, which is:
Irregularly a very long TTFBs for the first http-request of a website. (sometimes only few 100ms sometimes multiple seconds up to in worst case over 10s)
we use mostly CMSes like wordpress, joomla, ...
The very first request takes ages in our case (sometimes multiple seconds) to deliver to the client
We need the optimization of the very first http request/response of opening the website, which contains all HTML and all resources loaded later.
we do NOT need a optimization (for now) of the later requests!
if you require to review code. See wordpress on github
What we do NOT need
- a plugin installer / deinstaller person
- a cache plugin person
- a CDN installer
=> if activated CDN+Cache, issue is concealed but not solved. We need the root cause solver!
You are the clearly wrong person if you think you can narrow down by simply
- check free storage, ram, cpu usage , iops
- restarting services
- wanting to change/switching hosting provider (we own servers & infrastructure)
- better compression of images
- enabling gzip/br2 compression
- installing a CDN
- checking the slow query log
- checking gtmetrix, pagespeed, lighthouse, webpagetest and tuning the issues there (see waterfall section above)
Such basic check are already done and also our monitoring is checking many of them
=> we need the optimization of the very first http request of opening the website
=> we have CDN + CMS Cache running to conceal the problem, but initial problem is NOT solved
We will ask you in depth questions about the measuring in the qualification. So if you are not aware how to analyze the current situation.
You need to be clearly aware to be able to track/measure executions inside PHP to narrow down the problems.
Since we already get green values from measuring RAM, CPU, DB, Network, IO
But first browser http-request (TTFB) takes ages and afterwards the packages flow like rockets.
What parameters to monitor?
Can we switch provider/hardware/upgrade hardware?
provider-, hardware- & upgrade changes all tried. Incl. new setup on completely different provider, different cloud and newer ubuntu. No change.
So a clear NO, if you cannot explain with clean measurements E2E incl. all relevant system, network and software components.
But what is expected from you?
- define what to measure
- what commands to execute to measure the values
- what parameters specifically to measure (e.g. on iostat, provide a graph of tps)

as a basic expertise proof we want to see a report showing this:
Δt_totalPhpExectime == Δt_databaseAccessTime + Δt_diskAccessTime + Δt_wpHookAccessTimes + Δt_wpPluginExecTimes + Δt_others
since getting lots of queries about URL of the page, this is what you will see

I am not interested in any later request tuning, since irrelevant. My issue is the marked and first request
Do not wait for our availability here. Just answer, just ask or just reply.
