(click on a link below to see the corresponding demo/sample)
Timer Messages This shows an example of the kind of messages and timer-info that you'll get on your browser when you set the messages on for your session via the admin console login screen and then view a page on your site.
Admin Login Screen This shows the admin login screen which gives you access to turn the messages on/off for your current browser session.
Admin Session Override Screen This is the admin screen which lets you turn the messages on/off for your current browser session (you can only access this screen after logging in via the admin console login screen).

This module allows you to find out exactly how long different elements of your cart/system take to load/process/run (header, trailer, main processing, core-include etc).

The timer/debug messages are displayed at the bottom of the screen so that they don't interfere with the page-rendering, but it also allows you to display the messages in "immediate" mode as well if you want to.

You can use these messages to find out total page-load time, and to help narrow-down which aspects of your system/cart/page are slowing your site down the most, and then you can target those elements to fine-tune them and make them quicker.

You can also use these messages to help debug your scripts.

For example, with the VPCart shopping cart, you can find out if it's the main shop$db.asp include that's taking the time to process, or the header, or the trailer, or the main content of the page, or if specific pages/queries are taking the time, or specific elements within the header/trailer.

You can add as many messages as you want in any file/script that you want to help narrow-down things further.

Technical/Developer Information:
  • End-of-Script or Immediate Options
    You can display the messages at the bottom of the screen in a single block to check timings, or you can output them immediately as they happen for debugging, or both.
  • Ability to View Messages without others seeing them
    You can use the password-protected Speed-Tester admin console so that you can view your timer messages across the site for your session but where other visitors don't see them.
  • Easy-To-Add Messages
    It's very easy to add extra messages at whatever point in your files/scripts that you want by adding a simple line such as these in a relevant file:
    BYZ_SPT_ADD_MESSAGE "Categories have now all been queried."
    BYZ_SPT_ADD_MESSAGE "Displaying Product number "&i&" within loop."
    (if you're using the VPCart shopping cart, then the installation instructions and usage notes that come with the module explain exactly where to place the various messages within your VPCart files).
  • Negligeable Overheads
    The amount of processing that the speed-tester itself uses when adding messages is virtually zero; it won't have any effect on your page-load times. This means that you can leave your timer/debug messages in your code without having to worry about additional overheads, and then simply switch the messages on via the Speed Tester Admin Console when you want to do more testing/debugging later on.

click here for demo - our demo area has the timer messages displayed by default (they wouldn't normally by displayed by default, but we've enabled them via the config file so you can see how it looks/works) - click around the various pages on the demo area and you'll see the timer messages at the very bottom of the screen.
