“Load in The Loop” is a podcast on Magento Performance created by Magento Performance experts Ivan Chepurnyi and Eric Hileman (CEO at MageMojo). Blackfire proudly sponsors this podcast, providing the tool to support the two experts in finding performance issues on merchant sites, and optimize it.

The first episode of the podcast enabled no less than a Magento 1 Core performance optimization!

Even if Magento 1 is no longer supported by Magento/Adobe, many sites still haven’t migrated to Magento 2. Some Open Source communities still do their best to provide support for Magento 1.

By auditing a merchant site’s in this episode, Ivan figured that Magento 1’s review observer implementation led to an exponential increase of resources consumption.

Problem fixed with +4/-6 lines of code change. https://github.com/OpenMage/magento-lts/pull/840
