Magento 2 performance optimization checklist

PotatoCommerce has become GTmetrix official partner for Magento performance optimization in April 2018. They have checked our internal processes and quality of this Performance Optimization Service so to make sure that our services are provided quickly and professionally. Learn More →

Why you should choose our Magento Performance Optimization Service?

TTFB decreasing

Time to first byte (TTFB) is a time period between an initial request to a server and a server response. This is one of the key indicators of web page speed. TTFB should be lower than 1 second.

PotatoCommerce Full Page Cache extension

As for Magento 1.x, we use PotatoCommerce Full Page Cache extension extension to decrease TTFB within our service. We have >0.5 sec TTFB in 90% of the cases when we provide Magento optimization service.
As for Magento 2, FPC is already built in the platform, and we can check that it’s configured properly.
Tip: You can us GTMetrix service (see Timing tab) to check the TTFB of your website.

Image optimization

Approximately 60% of a web page size is made up of images. Compression of images (image optimization) will significantly reduce total size of web pages. Our Image Optimizer (it's available for both Magento and Magento 2) is able to optimize files of JPG, PNG and GIF image types. Both lossy and lossless image compression methods are available.
Tip: You can use GTMetrix to check whether images are optimized on your Magento store.

Merge and minification of Javascript and CSS files

Merge is combining files of the same type into a single file. For example, a browser will load one merged CSS-file of 1Mb faster, than 5 CSS-files of 200Kb due to fewer requests to a server.
Minification is a process of removing all excess information from Javascript and CSS files, which reduces size of resulting files.
Tip: You can us GTMetrix service to check whether JS and CSS files are merged and minified.

Defer parsing of Javascript

Parsing of Javascript files takes much time. However, some JS code is not required to render a page. Deferring parsing of none-required Javascript (until it’s required to be executed) enhances overall page speed.

HTML minify

You can improve overall page speed if HTML content of a page will be minified. Minified HTML code is faster delivered, parsed and rendered by a browser.
We use Compressor extension (M1 / M2) to merge and minify JS/CSS files, provide defer parsing of Javascript and to minify HTML.

Page size is reduced

Image optimization, GZIP compression, merge of JS/CSS files, eliminating excess files and CSS/JS/HTML minify allow significantly decreasing overall page size. Obviously, the lower page size is, the faster it is loaded.

Reduced number of requests to a server

Request processing has 4 steps: delivering of a request from a browser to a server, processing the request on the server side, delivering the response to the browser and processing the response on the browser side. Each step takes time. Thus, the more requests a browser makes, the slower a web page loading speed is. In addition, Magento Optimizatoin Service includes encountering and elimination of unnecessary/unused/duplicated scripts, libraries and other resources.

CPU and Memory usage tracking. Email alerts to a system administrator.

To understand and analyse the performance of your web-server and Magento, it is crucial to have a tool that allows tracking CPU and Memory usage for the last 30 days (or even more). Our Performance Monitoring Magento extension (M1 / M2) is used for that purpose. Its detailed reports have the list of top website and system transactions, which is very helpful in determining bottlenecks. In addition, it allows sending emails to notify a system administrator on high CPU load.

PHP and a web-server are configured properly

This service includes key enhancements of a web-server and PHP configuration. For example, it is important to enable mod_expires, mod_gzip (used to accelerate processing of client requests). We can also modify some PHP parameters (memory_limit, max_execution_time, etc.) if necessary.

Fixing compatibility issues with your theme and 3rd-party extensions

We fix possible compatibility issues with your web-theme and third-party modules that influence overall performance. Please keep in mind that this service does not include fixing bugs of third-party products, as well as theme optimization, making image sprites, images rescaling.

Professional configuration of PotatoCommerce extensions

It takes much time and requires a qualified technical specialist to configure a server and all installed modules properly. These tasks are not trivial as it may seem at first sight. Each store is unique and has a great variety of 3rd-party modules and themes. Sometimes, configuration of our extensions and server may take up to 8 hours.

Varnish configuration

Varnish is a caching reverse proxy-server and HTTP accelerator. Varnish effectively uses the capabilities of modern multiprocessor systems. The cache can store any information; as a result, Varnish is great to cache dynamic content. This allows Varnish to reduce response time and CPU load for future equivalent requests. So, if you want to speed up Magento 2, Varnish is a must.
We offer Varnish configuration for Magento 2 stores within the service.

CDN configuration

CDN services are used on millions of websites to accelerate the delivery of content to customers from nearby servers. Our technical specialists can also set up your CDN service with your Magento store. By the way, if you use Amazon S3 or Amazon Claudfront, then you can also get our Amazon CDN Synchronizer extension for free.

Full report of a completed work

Once the service is done, we will provide you with a full report:

  • 'Before vs After' performance reports for homepage, category and product pages, so that you can compare the final result with the initial state;
  • A list of modified files;
  • A list of our recommendations for further performance improvement.

Not included in the services
