Log HTTP Requests

Description

Log and view all WP HTTP requests

How long do [core / plugin / theme] update checks take to run? What data about my site is being sent out? What about all those ajax requests? The answers to these questions are just a few clicks away.

This plugin logs all WP_HTTP requests and displays them in a table listing for easy viewing. It also stores the runtime of each HTTP request.

Available Hooks

Customize the length (in days) before older log items are removed:

add_filter( 'lhr_expiration_days', function( $days ) {
    return 7; // default = 1
});

Don’t log items from a specific hostname:

add_filter( 'lhr_log_data', function( $data ) {
    if ( false !== strpos( $data['url'], 'wordpress.org' ) ) {
        return false;
    }
    return $data;
});

In the above example, the $data array keys correspond to columns within the lhr_log database table.

This plugin has proven to be an indispensable tool for tracking and analyzing HTTP requests. Its ability to reveal whether a request was made, along with detailed insights into the transmitted data and received responses, is simply remarkable. The clarity it provides is instrumental for troubleshooting and optimizing processes. A must-have for anyone dealing with HTTP interactions

This plugin is so helpful for tracking down whether an HTTP request was made at all, and when it was, what data was sent and what response was received. It's invaluable for tracking down bugs tied to unexpected responses and requests.

The Log HTTP Requests plugin might be my favorite troubleshooting tool of all time. It's helped me pinpoint intermittent issues that we never would have seen otherwise. THANK YOU, FacetWP! 🙂

After installing this plugin I noticed a lot of requests being made to one site. It turns out that there was a bug in the caching of the request data, and it was being made on every page load. Fixing this has given a big performance improvement. Thank you.
