Audit your Magento performance step by step

Step 1: Preparation

Duration: 3 hours

To commence the website audit, we undertake the following steps:

Create an installation copy of your website on a local machine for analysis
Measure and evaluate performance indicators

Step 2: Cache and configuration setting review

Duration: 7 hours

In this step, we thoroughly examine your Magento website's cache and configuration settings.

This review encompasses the following aspects:

Assess the status of enabled and disabled cache types to identify potential performance improvements
Evaluate Redis and Varnish settings to optimize caching mechanisms
Review CDN (Content Delivery Network) settings for enhanced content distribution and faster loading times
Analyze the 304 HTTP response for URL requests to ensure efficient handling of browser caching
Optimize JS/CSS (JavaScript/Cascading Style Sheets) to minimize loading times and improve frontend performance
Examine other configurations within the Magento admin panel to identify areas for optimization

Step 3: Magento background cron jobs review

Duration: 15 hours

During this phase, we focus on reviewing the Magento background cron jobs.

This step includes automated tasks essential for smooth store operations, such as generating reports, reindexing data, updating currency rates, sending emails, creating sitemaps, updating stock status, and synchronizing data with third-party systems like ERP, CRM, and Amazon.

The review involves the following activities:

Verify and assess all server cron jobs and suggest the extension installation if required
Evaluate import and export processes for seamless data transfer
Review daily operations with the back office to identify potential enhancements
Propose optimizations in architecture or configurations to streamline routine tasks and boost overall efficiency

Note: The cost of the suggested extension, if needed, will be calculated separately based on your choice, with an approximate price of around $150 for such an extension.

Step 4: Server architecture audit

Duration: 10 hours

In this step, we comprehensively review the Magento website's server architecture to ensure suitability and compatibility with the system requirements.

The audit includes the following checks:

Examine the web server software version to ensure it meets Magento's compatibility criteria
Evaluate the PHP version, settings, and required extensions to ensure optimal performance and stability
Verify the database management system version for compatibility and efficiency
Assess memory disk space to avoid resource constraints
Check for required system dependencies to guarantee smooth operations
Review the mail server settings for proper email communication and reliability

Step 5: Magento template profiling

Duration: 16 hours

During this stage, we perform a detailed analysis of the Magento website's templates to identify non-optimal and unused dependencies in the code.

The profiling process entails the following steps:

Thoroughly review the template code to ensure efficiency and adherence to best practices
Utilize a custom profiler to examine the main pages, such as home, product listing (PLP), product detail (PDP), cart, and checkout, for potential optimization opportunities

Step 6: Magento extension performance audit

Duration: 4 hours

In the final step, we conduct an in-depth review of all installed Magento extensions to determine their usage and impact on the website's performance.

The extension performance audit includes the following assessments:

Identify and evaluate unused extensions that can be removed to reduce unnecessary overhead
Determine if any installed extensions can be optimized to enhance overall performance
Check for the presence of black-listed extensions that could potentially harm the website's performance and security
