There are a lot of changes I want to make, and I may well forget them (as I have done this sort of work before). As a precaution, here are some experiments:

All of these benchmarks were conducted using Devel::NYTProf on my dev machine, running under mod_perl. ab (apache bench) was run with concurrency 2 (which matches the number of workers configure for this apache) on show_bug.cgi, with show_bug being configured for unauth'd users to get the new modal page.

Each of the changes below was test in isolation of the other changes.

Bugzilla/Util.pm:

1)
trick_taint() is slower than Taint::Util::untaint():
# spent 333ms (293+40.1) within Bugzilla::Util::trick_taint which was called 91861 times, avg 4µs/call:
# spent 26.0ms within Taint::Util::untaint which was called 91861 times, avg 283ns/call:

There is no trade-off, this is simply better. Taint::Util::untaint() directly toggles the taint flag.

2)
html_quote() is slower than HTML::Escape::escape_html():
# spent 1.19s (886ms+302ms) within Bugzilla::Util::html_quote which was called 183062 times, avg 6µs/call:
# spent 136ms within HTML::Escape::escape_html which was called 183062 times, avg 743ns/call:

For this way trade away from correcting bi-directional text and obscuring @ symbols.

extensions/TrackingFlags/lib/Flag.pm:

1)
It's better to cache in the request the list of sorted flags.

# spent 6.83s (5.56+1.27) within Bugzilla::Extension::TrackingFlags::Flag::CORE:sort which was called 785 times, avg 8.70ms/call:
# spent 3.22s (2.62+597ms) within Bugzilla::Extension::TrackingFlags::Flag::CORE:sort which was called 628 times, avg 5.12ms/call:

2)
get_all() could be cached in the config memcached cache (even for just non-logged-in users)
# spent 18.7s (210ms+18.5) within Bugzilla::Extension::TrackingFlags::Flag::get_all which was called 314 times, avg 59.5ms/call:
# spent 605ms (15.2+589) within Bugzilla::Extension::TrackingFlags::Flag::get_all which was called 314 times, avg 1.93ms/call:

Bugzilla/Template.pm:
1)
unsetting the global die handler before processing templates is very good idea.
# spent  67.2s making 157 calls to Bugzilla::Template::process, avg 428ms/call
# spent  53.5s making 158 calls to Bugzilla::Template::process, avg 339ms/call

Nothing here is particularly actionable here, so in second thought this bug can be open.

I think we've wanted this for a while -- it's a bit limited but it does reduce the number of SELECTS.

As far as I can tell, this is the right use of the config cache. I think it gets cleared when custom fields are added. I wonder if we can make stronger gurantees if we remove the ability to add custom fields at runtime?

So fun thing -- using an iterator style here causes a lot more actual SELECTs to flow to the server. I'm sure that was known in the past as using fetchrow_hashref() has always been advised against for Bugzilla.

In this same area we could benefit from some memcaching too.

Posted patch trick_taint.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
For now we just use this as trick_taint, but we can later replace for loops that use trick_taint, e.g.:

trick_taint($_) for @arr == untaint(@arr);

The only question here is: all or some?
For now I've just replaced id/name for the classes that get called the most.
It results in a dramatic performance improvement, and is more pronounced on larger bugs.

The only question here is if not obscuring the '@' and moving the Bi-Di handling (which.. this is not the right place to handle it!) is the right move or not.

Adding Bi-Di only costs a few milliseconds. This is f? because it obviously would need testing with Bi-Di text.

I rewrote a template in perl... using [% RAWPERL %].
The template was very expensive, it's now not expensive at all.

This is not the sort of optimization that is... very nice looking, but the performance is difficult to ignore.

Okay, so there's 13 patches here (and one on bug 1352264). What does all this mean, bigger picture?

Before these changes, benchmarks look like this:

https://people-mozilla.org/~dhardison/1351895/nytprof-slowest/index-subs-excl.html

Afterwards, like this:

https://people-mozilla.org/~dhardison/1351895/nytprof-fastest/index-subs-excl.html

On my dev machine with apache bench (and with profiling turned off) the difference is between 10 requests per second and 1 request per second[1]


[1] this is quite variable.

this feels clumsy.

a new param to trigger different behaviour instead of overloading $where would be cleaner.

this param is out of place - it isn't a "where" clause, and it's weird to pass in a scalar ref to just change behaviour.

perhaps you need two new_from methods, one for _where, and another for _joins_and_where

trick_taint returns a bool, while untaint always returns undef.
there's places in bugzilla that rely on trick_taint's result.
eg. https://github.com/mozilla-bteam/bmo/blob/e655f5133b4dd5c5d6f253069767db75c64eb349/report.cgi#L104

15 years ago s/\@/@/ may have done something, but there's no way it provides any form of protection today.  happy to see it gone in favour of performance.
stripping bi-di markers should remain however.
not sure about stripping control chars; you may have to look at our data to see what impact that would have.

indentation in this file is a mix of 2 and 4 spaces.

may as well strip all trailing whitespace while you're touching these lines.

instead of ignoring is_active here, it would be better to remove it from the calling site.
