For effective performance optimization, it's important to use a PHP profiler that tracks your production environment and helps you know the impact of the efforts of your optimization on your end-users. Many developers, who work on a performance optimization project for days and weeks, find that their optimization efforts haven't brought any difference to application performance.
AppDynamics' PHP monitoring solution helps you identify bottlenecks, track PHP code, and find out the root cause easily.
Easy to install and use
AppDynamics automatically maps your PHP application and starts baselining performance for every business transaction. When performance starts to deteriorate, you can effortlessly discover the bottleneck in your application and start fine-tuning. We'll also auto-detect your business transactions for MVC frameworks like Zend and Symfony.
Use performance baselines for intelligent alerting
Many PHP management tools have alerting capabilities but being set on static, global thresholds, it often leads to alert storms or missed alerts on developing problems. But, AppDynamics' intelligent baselines, alerts you only on improper performance for a particular infrastructure, Business Transaction, or application metric.
Drill down to code-level detail
In any PHP performance tool, AppDynamics has the most comprehensive call stack traces. With AppDynamics, you can see the code execution to comprehend the line of code responsible for latency. You also gain visibility into SQL queries. AppDynamics baselines the performance of each business transaction automatically and alerts when it deviates.
See the impact of new code releases
When new codes are released, AppDynamics helps you to compare the application performance before and after a code release in order to understand whether the performance was affected by the new code.

5 Secrets to Better PHP Performance
"Wait! Do you really need to profile that PHP code? Are you sure you want to start down that time-consuming, tedious path? If you’re looking to squeeze some more performance out of your PHP web application, there are a few relatively quick and easy checks to perform that can give your performance a boost before you dive into refactoring the code. And even if you’re intent on profiling your PHP code, you should still look at these areas to make sure you’re getting maximum performance...."
Comparing PHP 7 vs. HHVM
"PHP is one of the most popular scripting languages used for web development. The latest version of PHP, PHP 7 is a new version of the language that is been optimized for fast performance. However, PHP has a rival in HHVM (Hip Hop Virtual Machine) — a virtual tool that executes PHP code. The competition between these two options is heating up, so let’s take a look at the performance that each can offer...."
