Request log analyzer
--------------------------------

This is a simple command line tool to analyze request log files of both Rails and
Merb. Its purpose is to find what actions are best candidates for optimization.

This tool will parse all requests in the logfile and aggregate the
information. Once it is finished parsing the log file, it will show the
requests that take op most server time. Different metrics are used (cumulative
time, average time, blockers, DB time, etc)


Installation
--------------------------------
gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
sudo gem install wvanbergen-request-log-analyzer

Usage
--------------------------------

Usage: request-log-analyzer [FILE] [OPTION]
Analyze the given log FILE with the given OPTION
Example: request-log-analyzer mongrel.log

  --fast, -f:                 Only use completed requests
  --guess-database-time, -g:  Guesses the database duration of requests if they are not in the log
  --output, -o:               Comma-separated list of reports to show    
  --amount, -c:               Displays the top <amount> elements in the reports
  --colorize, -z:             Fancy bash coloring
