Note: Xdebug is disabled by default.
box xdebug:profiler <action>
To profile your PHP code, you have to start the Xdebug profiler first:
box xdebug:profiler start
Every PHP file that gets executed will now generate profiling information in the form of a cachegrind file. You can analyze these files using an application like KCacheGrind, MCG or PHPStorm.
The box has Webgrind pre-installed and configured at http://webgrind.joomla.box. However, please note that it might fail on complex and large cachegrind files. A desktop app is recommended.
By default, cachegrind files will be stored in .
Remember to disable profiling once you are done:
box xdebug:profiler stop
