PHP profiling with Blackfire

Blackfire is a PHP profiler that allows you to inspect your app's performance. It's great for discovering what exactly is slowing down your application, or what is eating away precious memory. For my projects, it was especially interesting to monitor slow external IO and API calls, and to see the percentage of time spent on queries.

Give it a try, it's really easy to install, especially if you are using Chef!
