django-speedinfo 1.0.1

Live profiling tool for Django framework to measure views performance

Latest Version: 1.3.2

SpeedInfo is a live profiling tool for the Django framework to find most highload views in your project for the next optimization. SpeedInfo counts number of calls, cache hits, authorized calls, average and total call time and more for each of your views. Detailed report and profiler controls are available in Django admin.


Django 1.10 and above.


  1. Run pip install django-speedinfo.

  2. Add speedinfo to the beginning of the INSTALLED_APPS.

  3. Add speedinfo.middleware.ProfilerMiddleware to the end of MIDDLEWARE list, but before django.middleware.cache.FetchFromCacheMiddleware (if used):

  4. Run python migrate.

  5. Setup any cache backend, except local-memory and dummy caching. Profiler uses the cache to store its state.


Open Views profiler in Django admin. Click the Turn on / Turn off button to control profiler state. Use Reset button to flush all data.


To exclude some urls from profiling add it to the SPEEDINFO_EXCLUDE_URLS list. SpeedInfo uses re.match internally to test requested url. Example:


SpeedInfo automatically detects when using Django per-site caching via UpdateCacheMiddleware and FetchFromCacheMiddleware middlewares or per-view caching via cache_page decorator and counts cache hit when retrieving page from cache.

In case you implement your own caching logic and want to mark view response as obtained from the cache, set attribute with name taken from SPEEDINFO_CACHED_RESPONSE_ATTR_NAME to True to the HttpResponse object. Example:

from django.views import View
from speedinfo.settings import SPEEDINFO_CACHED_RESPONSE_ATTR_NAME

class CachedView(View):
    def get(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
        # ...
        # `response` was taken from the cache
        # mark it in appropriate way
        setattr(response, SPEEDINFO_CACHED_RESPONSE_ATTR_NAME, True)
        return response
