we’ve been experiencing very slow load times throughout our websites that have WPDM installed. Our programmer has identified this issue:

When the plugin initializes it runs:

spl_autoload_register( array( $this, ‘AutoLoad’ ) );

This dynamically loads 20 classes for every request. There may be code in one of those which is actually responsible but if I comment this out, the request time is reduced significantly.

Is this something that can be fixed? The plugin is the only one that does what we need on the sites so I’m loathed to have to remove it and start again with something else.

The spl_autoload_register loads all necessary classes required for the plugin.

Download Manager handles many data-heavy operations which adds a little more load on your server as any other similar plugin would do. But that does not have any major effect on site speed. And if you use a cache plugin, all WPDM pages are loaded through the cache and does not add any server load. It just serves the cached page without any server calculation.
