How to track slow loading macros in Confluence?

We have several pages that have begun to load slowly, and we'd like to identify which macros in particular are slowing down the page load.  I've already seen this page:, but the documentation appears to be out of date.  The only macros that show up in the logs are the ones that are still using wiki markup.  Is anyone aware of a more recent method to identify which macros are slowing down a page load?

It ended up being Section and Column macros that were slowing the page down, but it would have been nice to be able to figure that out a little easier than having to manually delete sections of the page here and there, especially for complex pages. Anyone have any ideas?

Hi Stephen,

I believe what you're looking for is to enable the Performance profiling, which can tell us what exactly is slowing things down once we load a page. I highly suggest that you do the test that you want, then disable the performance profiling option, is just because your logs will be huge otherwise.
