Solve n+1 queries in PHP with Scout

Scout is a Laravel Application Performance Monitoring (APM) tool that pinpoints and prioritizes performance and stability issues, like N+1 database queries, in PHP applications. Scout's tracing logic detects and highlights the exact line of code causing the performance abnormality, and with detailed backtraces, you can fix the issue before customers are impacted. Scout provides further insights by automatically calculating memory increase, tracking object allocations to minimize overhead, and prioritizing query data by potential time saved.

N+1 Queries

Eloquent performance is typically the main reason for slow Laravel projects. A big part of that is a so-called "N+1 Query Problem". Scout APM includes tracing logic to detect and highlight the exact line causing it.
