    • @flixos90: Feels like another merge proposal post with a concrete timeline on a merge date could be good to put out right after 6.1, so people can provide any additional feedback. Should also note the new theme support flag approach.

Discussion: Module proposal: Optimized autoloaded options

@markjaquith

  • Options are autoloaded by default, and most options stay autoloaded even after the plugin or theme that uses them has been deactivated
  • This autoloading has a cost in terms of the performance of the query that loads autoloaded options, and also because the values of these options are kept in memory
  • Discussed a lot of ways of addressing this at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. US, and the most promising path that would have the most benefit for the most users (and fits in with this group’s philosophy on focusing on automated fixes instead of introducing new APIs) is to dynamically move options in and out of the “autoload” pool based on usage
  • Options that are used *and* are not past a certain size cutoff should be autoloaded, but large options and options that are not used, should not be autoloaded
  • Proof of concept is linked in the ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. and we’re looking for additional feedback
  • @pbearne already brought up the issue of options that are queried BEFORE a module could start “listening” for them to be called, but there are undoubtedly other gotchas and opportunities here
  • Especially useful would be help in developing a strategy for measuring the performance of this fix for various sizes of autoloaded options
    • @flixos90: Could leverage the Server Timing APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. (noted above) to measure the time the autoloaded options query takes, for example
  • @pbearne: Think that both @markjaquith‘s and my fixes can be used as they work best for different configurations
  • @spacedmonkey: Could we start adding a limit to the number of autoloaded options, say 250 rows? Or is the issue size in terms of memory?
    • @pbearne: If we can load just what we need, the SQL time is less
    • @markjaquith: We do this to avoid hundreds of individual queries
  • @rickjames: Is “autoloading” the thing that PHP can do for include files? I thought it was so slow as to be better to always include everything
    • @markjaquith: No, this is about quering the wp_options table for autoload = 'yes'
  • @rickjames: That gets to the lack of adequate indexes for the wp_options table; a simple change can speed up SELECTs
    • @markjaquith: There’s already an index, it’s more about the volume of data being transferred
  • @eugenemanuilov: Think we should move from defining which option is autoload-able in the database table to the option registration in WP, so a plugin/theme owner will need to register an option similarly to how settings are registered with register_setting and define whether an option is autoload-able there
  • @flixos90: Both proposals at a high level have the idea of querying what is needed, but the newer proposal does it globally while still keeping a single place of storage while the latter was aimed at having different “options lists” per template/page. The latter would be great, but it comes with heavy storage implications, so the newer proposal is probably the best place to start since it has no additional storage implications.
  • @markjaquith: Do think that the issue is data, not rows – evicting autoloaded options could help wtih both
  • @rmccue: Have run into performance problems with pulling autoloaded options from object cache, so agreed that this is an issue
  • @markjaquith: Also issue with memcache’s default config being size-limited
  • @spacedmonkey: Could we use register_settings to define if an option should be autoloaded?
  • @rmccue: CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. problem is that autoload is true by default, which is what causes issues
  • @markjaquith: Two approaches – @pbearne optimized for “literally just what this page needs”; my POC was for “never autoload things that aren’t used”
  • @spacedmonkey: So will we store an array of used options in options table?
    • @markjaquith: Current implementation only stores timestamp of last calibration, but with some additional storage we could minimize dynamic re-adding of autoloaded options
  • @rmccue: Autoloading options should minimize DB/cache calls, but not necessarily replace them. The heuristic of what should be autoloaded is key to this proposal.
    • @markjaquith: To me, it’s “things that are used and aren’t unreasonably large.” Can also honor autoload='no' while not honoring autoload='yes' as chosen by developers.
  • @spacedmonkey: Don’t love the idea of storing an array of keys. How do you generate the array? What is the average page load?
  • @rmccue: To move forward, we need a concrete proposal for how the heuristic works. Will look into the networknetwork (versus site, blog) saturation problems we’ve run into get an idea of what “unreasonable” might lok like.
  • Next steps: @markjaquith will work on detailing the heuristic further in #526 and when it’s ready, we’ll schedule another discussion for a future chat

Our next chat will be held on Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 11am EDT in the #core-performance channel in Slack.
