Drupal Devel Module

Drupal has so many contributed module that are focused on developers. These modules are focused to ease custom module development – a few of them help to keep the code consistent, a few of them help to focus on performance, some on the deployment etc.

Devel – is one such module for developer to debug the page performance. This may be sophisticated measuring approach or tool but can be pretty handy to get a hint on where to start off. This module can log page response time, memory usage, number of database calls per page.

They have configuration available with different parameter in mind like site in production environment, small site, larger site, in-memory etc. It can also generate content, nodes, comments, users etc.
