add_filter( 'gentime_minimum_role', 'my_gentime_minimum_role' );
function my_gentime_minimum_role( $default = 'install_plugins' ) {

Doesn't bog down the system and works as expected! Better than any other timing plugin I've used.

Useful for testing page load speed especially if you have many different page setups. Thanks!

I love Sybre's plugins. This one is soo simple, soo useful, no idea how this feature is not included in most seo or all-purpose plugins. Highly recommended for people dedicated to speed up their site!
