wpmudev dashboard plugin resource consumption

Hello - I was looking at the dashboard plugin and was wondering about its impact on website performance. It's convenient to be able to access everything in one place, but how does the plugin affect page speed load times vs not using it and installing plugins individually.

    Hi Ray,

    Thank you for your question.

    The WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin uses WP transients cache, every certain amount of time the plugin contacts our API to get the needed data, then caches it to increase performance.

    It will not affect the website performance too much until another plugin is breaking the cache, then it might try to contact our servers on every pageload.

    We recommend you to use WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin so that you will get critical plugin updates in your dashboard and all other features provided by this plugin.

    Best Regards,
    Vinod Dalvi
