PHP Performance Tuning

I'll fix your PHP application performance issues.

Performance matters

Are you looking to:

  • Increase conversion rates?

  • Reduce cart abandonment rates?

  • Improve search rankings?

  • Gain user trust?

My PHP Performance Tuning can get you there.

Why tune the performance of my PHP application?

Performance can influence conversion rates, cart abandonment rates, search engine optimization rankings, and how trustworthy your clients find your site. This leads to lower sales, poor search rankings, mobile visitors abandoning your site altogether, and loss of user trust.

Sites with poor performance can have a huge impact on a business. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to know if and how a site is performing poorly. That's why a performance audit of your website or application can be so important.


My work is guaranteed. I will continue to work until I’ve reached the stated goals.

PHP Performance Tuning

I'll start off with a PHP Performance Audit of your application so that I can create an accurate proposal for tuning your PHP application. You'll work with me to decide which performance issues you'd like to focus on. I'll send you a proposal for addressing your selected performance issues.

What's included

  • A completed PHP Performance Audit

  • Written proposal for addressing your performance issues

  • Performance fixes implemented for your application

  • Written report outlining performance changes

How it works

What does PHP Performance Tuning look like?

First, I'll audit your application. During this process I'll start working closely with your team to understand how your application works. Then, I'll explore the code to uncover any performance issues. Finally, I'll give you the information you need to know to improve the performance of your application.

At the end of the audit, you'll receive a written report. Your report will include:

  • Analysis of how your application is performing
  • Proposals for how to fix any low-hanging fruit we discover that will help improve performance across the board
  • Recommendations for steps to take to increase the performance of your application

From there, I'll work with you to determine which performance issues are most pressing so that I can create a proposal for the work required.

If you accept my proposal, I'll move into implementation. Once implementation is completed, I'll provide you with a detailed report showing how the performance of your application changed due to my work.

If you decide to reject my proposal, you are free to use the audit to find another developer to fix your performance issues.

What kind of performance issues can you detect and fix?

I look at your code and measure resource consumption while your application is executing. This allows us me figure out where and how those resources are being used. You can use this information to determine how best to improve the performance.

Which resources do you look at?

There are a few key resources I will look at to help determine whether there are performance issues with your application.

CPU Time

This is the time spent executing your application. This is time that your application is actually running code. High CPU time contributes to high CPU load averages and consuming too many compute resources.

I/O Time

This is the time your application spends waiting for something to happen. During this time your application is not actually running code. High IO time can be a sign of slow external resources, problems with local infrastructure (like disks), or problematic SQL queries.


Your application consumes memory. This is where your application stores what it knows while it is executing. If your application consumes too much memory, your application or site can become slow or unstable.


Many applications also consume network resources. Any time your application communicates with a resource on a different host or network involves networking resources. This can contribute to both higher I/O time and larger-than-needed bandwidth bills when transferring data in cloud environments.

How long will my audit take?
It depends! A successful audit will require close collaboration between me and your technical team. Availability, scheduling, and acting on action items may take some time. The early stages of the audit will involve getting key stakeholders together to get a better sense of what I'll need from your team so I can start building a timeline.
How long will it take to create a proposal after the audit is completed?
It depends! A successful proposal will require close collaboration between me and your technical and/or business teams. We would need to collectively decide which performance issues the proposal should address. Availability, scheduling, and acting on action items may take some time.
How long will implementation take?
It depends! The proposal will include a high-level overview of the amount of work and time required to implement everything. This will all be very dependent on the performance issues you choose and the difficulty in fixing those specific issues. If the timeline in my proposal is not satisfactory you can opt to shop around for a better timeline from other developers.
What if I don't have a technical team?
No problem! I'll do what we can to ensure a successful audit and tuning with whatever resources you have available.
What if we've already done a performance audit of our PHP application?
No problem! If you already completed my PHP Performance Audit, I'll credit you the full amount of your PHP Performance Audit against the price of the PHP Performance Tuning. If you have an audit from somewhere else, I'll need review it to determine if I can use it or if I need to do a complete or partial PHP Performance Audit to augment it.
Do I have to work with you to address the findings in my audit?
No! You are not tied to working with me after your PHP Performance Audit is complete. The results of the audit are structured clearly so that any developer can use it.
Are you available for consulting if we decide to act on the findings in my audit with someone else?
Yes! I'd be delighted to help you successfully address any performance issues discovered in your audit! I offer a PHP Performance Consulting service that extends my involvement beyond the initial PHP Performance Audit.
