PHP Performance: xhprof, xhgui, and profiling

Paul Reinheimer and Mark Story will be sharing details of the XHProf profiling extension for PHP released by Facebook. It returns detailed information about your scripts, and how they're executed, but unlike XDebug it's suitable to run in production. Paul will discuss the extension itself, how it's used, what it can do, and how to install it. Mark will follow up with details on the new XHGui[1] tool that can be used to visualize the results of XHProf, and make it easy to track down performance problems. [1]
