    Zend AMF issue


      I've got an application that uses Zend Framework to make PHP calls to access a db.  Everything works fine on my development server.  After a few issues, I made the necessary changes to amf_config.ini for the production server.  I checked that the endpoint is fine by just loading the gateway.php directly. Works fine there, and the application is functional, but I have a bizarre performance issue.


      Loading up the gateway.php on its own, or performing any remote call takes an extremely long time - nearly a minute.  This happens when just loading the gateway.php file so it seems a ZendAMF thing, not Flex itself.  I've also removed all php files (except Zend Framework and the gateway.php), and it's still slow, so it's not not from the addDirectory part of the gateway.php.  Any ideas what might be causing this extreme slowdown?  I've temporarily gone to getting rid of Zend and just using PHP and XML, but this is not ideal.


      gateway.php contents



      ini_set("display_errors", 1);

      $dir = dirname(__FILE__);

      $webroot = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'];

      $configfile = "$dir/amf_config.ini";


      //default zend install directory

      $zenddir = $webroot. '/ZendFramework/library';


      //Load ini file and locate zend directory

      if(file_exists($configfile)) {



      $webroot = $arr['zend']['webroot'];

      $zenddir = $webroot. '/ZendFramework/library';



      $zenddir = $arr['zend']['zend_path'];





      // Setup include path

      //add zend directory to include path


      // Initialize Zend Framework loader

      require_once 'Zend/Loader/Autoloader.php';


      // Load configuration

      $default_config = new Zend_Config(array("production" => false), true);

      $default_config->merge(new Zend_Config_Ini($configfile, 'zendamf'));


      $amf = $default_config->amf;


      // Store configuration in the registry

      Zend_Registry::set("amf-config", $amf);

      // Initialize AMF Server

      $server = new Zend_Amf_Server();


      if(isset($amf->directories)) {

      $dirs = $amf->directories->toArray();

      foreach($dirs as $dir) {

          // get the first character of the path.

          // If it does not start with slash then it implies that the path is relative to webroot. Else it will be treated as absolute path

          $length = strlen($dir);

          $firstChar = $dir;

          if($length >= 1)

          $firstChar = $dir[0];


          if($firstChar != "/"){

          // if the directory is ./ path then we add the webroot only.

          if($dir == "./"){    



          $tempPath = $webroot . "/" . $dir;








      // Initialize introspector for non-production

      if(!$amf->production) {

      $server->setClass('Zend_Amf_Adobe_Introspector', '', array("config" => $default_config, "server" => $server));

      $server->setClass('Zend_Amf_Adobe_DbInspector', '', array("config" => $default_config, "server" => $server));


      // Handle request

      echo $server->handle();

      Thanks for any help!
