JetPack is no doubt the best plugin out there with almost all
WordPress.com functionality. It comes with almost 40 different functionalities, I would say small plugins which works best across all the sites.
WordPress and Jetpack– Hmm… Looks so best solution but better be careful 🙂
We used it on Crunchify.com for some time but because of some performance issue we stopped using Jetpack on Crunchify. No doubt we use VaultPress as our complete backup solution but it doesn’t need Jetpack once you register for your Jetpack plan. You could remove Jetpack once you activate VaultPress.
As part of weekly WordPress Database cleanup process, while doing
WP_OPTIONS table cleanup we noticed almost ~2300
Surprisingly during Jetpack uninstall process, plugin didn’t cleanup those
_transident_jetpack_ records by itself. You have to do it manually.
It’s same like when you uninstall Disqus you have to remove all
dsq_ records, when you uninstall Akismet then remove all junk Akismet data, WooCommerce thousands of GEO Location data and more 🙂
As you see in above image, Jetpack adds lots of
_transient_timeout_jetpack_jitm. JITM stands for just in time messaging which Jetpack uses internally.
I would suggest you to clean up all unused data from WP_OPTIONS table and also from WP_POSTMETA table. All below steps all will help if you have any of below questions:
