While the references Patrick made to caching layers being bypassed for logged in requests are correct ( if they didn't there would be really bad security consequences ), that doesn't apply in this case.

The really slow request in that test - http://imageskin.com.au/wp-admin/admin-a...3059122921 - is for the WordFence plugin. That plugin has options that will trigger database writes on every page request ( doesn't matter if visitor is logged in or not, it will write to the DB on every page request ). If you get lots of traffic or have a very minimal server hosting MySQL, it can easily crush your database. Unless you really need the additional data that WordFence writes to the database for every page request I recommend turning it off.

Beyond that the rest of the results show the typical issues when making lots of requests for JavaScript, CSS, and images. Reducing the number of different files being requested will help improve performance.

Hi,
Thanks for that. I am aware that Wordfence takes up lot of data. My concern is for the security of the site. Would you suggest another "security" plugin?
