Drupal Commerce flamegraphs and performance.

 I've been working on a and one of the tools is setting up the ability to easily generate flamegraphs. I figure the best test run would be to dive into some basic info on the performance of a front page load for a typical Drupal Commerce site. There's no magic solution presented here, just some knowledge on what the build process looks depending on caches.

Drupal and New Relic, pure winning.

I use my personal server as a guinnea pig to push my server administrative skills to the edge and help bleed as much performance out of Drupal. So not even an hour and a half ago I signed up for New Relic and installed their monitoring daemon on my server. And I'm in love. The installation was ridiculously easy that even a novice who is scared of the terminal could pull it off.
