Profiling a PHP script

Let me take you on a fabulous adventure.

I was working on a new web app I'm doing and the app felt a little sluggish. I wanted to know what was causing the sluggishness. Was it database access? Encryption? Compression? Something else?

So I did a search for profiling a php script and turned up this article (Simplest way to profile a PHP script) at StackOverflow. I read this answer which suggested the PECL APD extension so I figured I'd check it out.

I found the documentation for APD (APD stands for Advanced PHP Debugger) and I read the installation instructions, but there didn't seem to be anything there. Admittedly I was just looking for the Ubuntu package to install with apt-get. Now that I'm writing this up I realise I should have read Installation of PECL extensions first, but I missed that at the time.

I started throwing commands at my terminal:

 # apt-cache search apd
 # apt-cache search apd php
 # apt-cache search apd | grep php
 # apt-cache search apd | grep PHP
 # cd /usr
 # find -name "apd.so"
 # apt-cache search pecl
 # apt-get install dh-make-php

The dh-make-php package was the closest thing I could find, so I thought maybe I would try that. It said "dh-make-php - Creates Debian source packages for PHP PEAR and PECL extensions", sounded pretty close. Maybe. Anyway, before I confirmed the installation of of dh-make-php I thought I'd do some more research.

I searched for installing pecl apd ubuntu but that didn't seem to turn up much. The first result was in French, and it only seemed to be an unanswered question about an error during compilation.

I searched for apd.so ubuntu (because the installation instructions that I read said I needed apd.so) and I turned up How to install apd in debian php5 at ServerFault. The answer said to install php-pear and then run "pecl install apd". So I did "apt-get install php-pear" and that worked well enough. Then I ran pecl:

root@sixsigma:~# pecl install apd

..........done: 36,643 bytes

sh: phpize: not found
ERROR: `phpize' failed

I searched for sh: phpize: not found ERROR: `phpize' failed and found phpize: command not found which said I needed to apt-get install php5-dev, which I did. Then I tried again:

root@sixsigma:~# pecl install apd

ERROR: `phpize' failed

I searched for the error message running: phpize Cannot find config.m4. and found Cannot find config.m4 + phpize +Resolved which just said like the error message said that I needed to run from the top level source directory. Whatever that was supposed to mean.

I searched for the downloaded file apd-1.0.1.tgz and found it in /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/. So I tried the following:

root@sixsigma:~# cd /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/

It wasn't clear what to do next. There was no configure script or Makefile in the directory.

I searched for the full error message Starting to download apd-1.0.1.tgz (36,643 bytes) ..........done: 36,643 bytes 15 source files, building running: phpize Cannot find config.m4. and found this which seemed to suggest I needed to run "pear channel-update pear.php.net" which I did, but nothing exciting happened:

The error message had said something about "phpize" so I figured I'd give that a go.

make: *** [php_apd.lo] Error 1

I searched for building pecl apd but didn't turn up anything useful. I had a look at the code in php_apd.c on line 967:

int apd_zend_startup(zend_extension *extension)
{
  TSRMLS_FETCH();
  CG(extended_info) = 1;  /* XXX: this is ridiculous */
  return zend_startup_module(&apd_module_entry);
}

The problem line was the line saying "this is ridiculous". I wonder what they meant?

I decided to figure out where CG was defined so I could figure out what was going on. I grepped for CG:

root@sixsigma:/build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1# grep -R "define CG" *
root@sixsigma:/build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1# 

No dice. I had a look in the Makefile and found phpincludedir = /usr/include/php5.

jj5@sixsigma:~$ cd /usr/include/php5
jj5@sixsigma:/usr/include/php5$ ls
ext  main  TSRM  Zend
jj5@sixsigma:/usr/include/php5$ grep -R "define CG" *
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:# define CG(v) TSRMG(compiler_globals_id, zend_compiler_globals *, v)
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:# define CG(v) (compiler_globals.v)

The code in question was:

/* Compiler */
#ifdef ZTS
# define CG(v) TSRMG(compiler_globals_id, zend_compiler_globals *, v)
int zendparse(void *compiler_globals);
#else
# define CG(v) (compiler_globals.v)
extern ZEND_API struct _zend_compiler_globals compiler_globals;
int zendparse(void);
#endif

I wasn't sure if ZTS was defined or not, but in any event the problem seemed to be related to *zend_compiler_globals.

root@sixsigma:/usr/include/php5# grep -R compiler_global *
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:typedef struct _zend_compiler_globals zend_compiler_globals;
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:# define CG(v) TSRMG(compiler_globals_id, zend_compiler_globals *, v)
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:int zendparse(void *compiler_globals);
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:# define CG(v) (compiler_globals.v)
Zend/zend_globals_macros.h:extern ZEND_API struct _zend_compiler_globals compiler_globals;
Zend/zend_globals.h:ZEND_API extern int compiler_globals_id;
Zend/zend_globals.h:struct _zend_compiler_globals {

I found the struct definition in Zend/zend_globals.h. I had a look at the source. It was a huge file. I searched for "extend" (because the error message was about missing member "extended_info") and all I found was:

        /* for extended information support */
        zend_bool no_extensions;

Maybe I had an older version of the header file and it had been refactored from "no_extensions" to "extended_info"? That might explain why the comment was complaining about something being ridiculous. Maybe they rename their interface all the time? I tried changing php_apd.c to use "no_extensions" instead of "extended_info" but that didn't compile either. Not knowing what else to do I commented out the line wtih the syntax error:

int apd_zend_startup(zend_extension *extension)
{
  TSRMLS_FETCH();
  /* CG(extended_info) = 1;  /* XXX: this is ridiculous */
  return zend_startup_module(&apd_module_entry);
}

Then I ran make again:

specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable

No tests were run.

That didn't look good. There was complaints about an invalid apd.so library and no tests were run. What next?

I had a look in the Makefile for the "test: all" target:

test: all
        -@if test ! -z "$(PHP_EXECUTABLE)" && test -x "$(PHP_EXECUTABLE)"; then \
                INI_FILE=`$(PHP_EXECUTABLE) -d 'display_errors=stderr' -r 'echo php_ini_loaded_file();' 2> /dev/null`; \
                if test "$$INI_FILE"; then \
                        $(EGREP) -h -v $(PHP_DEPRECATED_DIRECTIVES_REGEX) "$$INI_FILE" > $(top_builddir)/tmp-php.ini; \
                else \
                        echo > $(top_builddir)/tmp-php.ini; \
                fi; \
                INI_SCANNED_PATH=`$(PHP_EXECUTABLE) -d 'display_errors=stderr' -r '$$a = explode(",\n", trim(php_ini_scanned_files())); echo $$a[0];' 2> /dev/null`; \
                if test "$$INI_SCANNED_PATH"; then \
                        INI_SCANNED_PATH=`$(top_srcdir)/build/shtool path -d $$INI_SCANNED_PATH`; \
                        $(EGREP) -h -v $(PHP_DEPRECATED_DIRECTIVES_REGEX) "$$INI_SCANNED_PATH"/*.ini >> $(top_builddir)/tmp-php.ini; \
                fi; \
                TEST_PHP_EXECUTABLE=$(PHP_EXECUTABLE) \
                TEST_PHP_SRCDIR=$(top_srcdir) \
                CC="$(CC)" \
                        $(PHP_EXECUTABLE) -n -c $(top_builddir)/tmp-php.ini $(PHP_TEST_SETTINGS) $(top_srcdir)/run-tests.php -n -c $(top_builddir)/tmp-php.ini -d extension_dir=$(top_builddir)/modules/ $(PHP_TEST_SHARED_EXTENSIONS) $(TESTS); \
        else \
                echo "ERROR: Cannot run tests without CLI sapi."; \
        fi

A little bit of tinkering and I was able to determine that the test script was running:

/usr/bin/php -n -c /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/tmp-php.ini -d open_basedir= -d output_buffering=0 -d memory_limit=-1 /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/run-tests.php -n -c /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/tmp-php.ini -d extension_dir=/build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/modules/ -d extension=apd.so

I wasn't quite sure where to begin with that, so I searched for the error message PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Invalid library (maybe not a PHP library) 'apd.so' in Unknown on line 0 which rendered Re: Problems Compiling (lots of) extensions with
php 5.1-beta3 - msg#00192
which suggested the problem was that APD was a Zend extension not a normal extension:

Aren't tzhose Zend Extensions? So you would need to load them with
zend_extension = [full path] instead of extension = [filename].

I remembered way back in the original installation instructions something about configuring zend_extension... so I edited /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/tmp-php.ini and added the following:

 zend_extension = /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/modules/apd.so
 apd.dumpdir = /build/trace
 apd.statement_tracing = 0

Since I was using the zend_extension I edited the command line to remove all references to "extension" arguments:

/usr/bin/php -n -c /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/tmp-php.ini -d open_basedir= -d output_buffering=0 -d memory_limit=-1 /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/run-tests.php -n -c /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/tmp-php.ini

ERROR: environment variable TEST_PHP_EXECUTABLE must be set to specify PHP executable!

So I set that variable:

No tests were run.

Still no tests running. I had a read, a nice long read, of the /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/run-tests.php file. It seems to load an run *.phpt files. So I searched for pecl apd phpt files and found Patching a bug in a pecl extension which describes the *.phpt file format. So I created a test.phpt file:

--TEST--
Just testing.
--FILE--
<?php

apd_set_pprof_trace();

function a() { echo "a"; }
function b() { a(); echo "b"; }

a();
b();
a();
--EXPECT--
aaba

I ran the run-tests.php script again and checked the /build/trace directory for messages from APD, but there was nothing there. The tests hadn't run.

I couldn't be bothered figuring out the correct syntax for run-tests.php so I edited the file and changed line 824 from:

$test_dirs = array();

To:

$test_dirs = array( '.' );

Then I ran the tests again:

And they ran!

I checked the /build/trace directory, and there was a file there! The trace had worked!

root@sixsigma:/build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1# cd /build/trace
root@sixsigma:/build/trace# ls

It took me a little while to find it, but eventually I found the pprofp script in the file /build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1/pprofp. So I ran it:

root@sixsigma:/build/buildd/php5-5.3.2/pear-build-download/apd-1.0.1# ./pprofp -r /build/trace/pprof.15345.0
bash: ./pprofp: /usr/local/bin/php: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

I needed to fix the registered interpreter. I changed it to /usr/bin/php.

It works!

So then all I had to do was configure my application under development to run apd, which I did. Then I ran the report on the trace file it generated:

And ob_end_flush had a massive 36% of the processing time! Not sure what to do, I tried changing my php.ini file setting output_buffering to 200,000:

#output_buffering = 4096
output_buffering = 200000

Then I ran my code again and examined the next trace:

So that configuration change seemed to have fixed that problem! Or maybe it was just an aberration?

In any event, I've found the reason for my sluggish site. It's because I've been lazy and haven't refactored pccipher yet. When I was doing the development work it was easiest to write the algorithm once and then define an interface for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the code to implement. This meant that I had to do my math with functions rather than with operators, which is slooooow. Anyway, I knew that. I guess now that I can't hide from it I'll have to get around to fixing up that implementation and improving its performance.

I'm glad that was easy...

  1. There’s a patch over here https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=58798 for fixing the extended info compilation error rather than just commenting it out.

    [2011-01-15 02:48 UTC] omega13a at yahoo dot com

    I made a patch that allowed me to compile it. The patch also correct the extension’s version number that shows up in phpinfo().

  2. Thanks! I got this working although it seemed like it would be so hard. I was working in OSX.

    I installed PECL the standard way and ran into the issue with APD. So I used ‘sudo pecl download http://pecl.php.net/get/apd‘ then I untarred it and followed the README file. I ran into the error you got and commented out the CG line then ran it again. Then I got the path to the zend extension that was created, the apd.cp file and put it into php.ini.

    Restarting apache and running one of the apd commands worked after that! I didn’t care about getting the test script working since apd worked fine on my web server. Thanks!
