    Silky smooth profiling for Django

    Maybe look at

  • django-debug-toolbar

    A configurable set of panels that display various debug information about the current request/response. is also pretty good, but down to personal preference which of the 2 you choose (I prefer silk).

  • Sonar

  • PgHero

    A performance dashboard for Postgres

    If you are using PostgreSQL you can enable logging of slow queries and connect to the server with pghero ( and check top queries by the number of requests and total usage time. Also, you can just enable logging of queries in Django, and on each request, you will have a list of queries on development, sometimes it's just a missing select_related of prefetch_related to increase performance, or you need to create a complex index.
