Use Ray to find queries that are slowing you down in your Laravel project

Database queries are often one of the main bottlenecks when it comes down to your app’s speed. Not only is it important to give your users a snappy experience of your app, slow queries can cause major problems when your app is experiencing high load. Luckily Ray makes it super easy to find out what queries you should optimize.
