Analyze Zope instance log with haufe.requestmonitoring entries

branch: master
README.rst

Introduction

This project adds to your system a new utility command: zope_lrr_analyzer. This utility only works with Zope instance logs with haufe.requestmonitoring installed (and where the monitoring long running requests hook is enabled).

Your instance.log will be populated by entries like this:

------
2012-03-27T15:58:19 WARNING RequestMonitor.DumpTrace Long running request
Request 28060 "/VirtualHostBase/http/www.mysite.com:80/mysiteid/VirtualHostRoot/myrequest/..." running in thread 1133545792 since 10.7206499577s
Python call stack (innermost first)
  ...
  lot of lines, depends on Python traceback
  ...
  Module ZPublisherEventsBackport.patch, line 80, in publish
  Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 202, in publish_module_standard
  Module ZPublisher.Publish, line 401, in publish_module
  Module ZServer.PubCore.ZServerPublisher, line 25, in __init__
<BLANKLINE>

The utility will help you to parse long running request collecting some statistical data.

How to use

Usage: zope_lrr_analyzer [options] logfile [logfile...]

Analyze Zope instance log with haufe.requestmonitoring entries

Options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-s START_FROM, --start=START_FROM
  start analysis after a given date/time (format like "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS")
-e END_AT, --end=END_AT
  stop analysis at given date/time (format like "YYYY- MM-DD HH:MM:SS")
-l LOG_SIZE, --log-size=LOG_SIZE
  keep only an amount of slow requests. Default is: no limit.
-i INCLUDE_REGEX, --include=INCLUDE_REGEX
  a regexp expression that a calling path must match or will be discarded. Can be called multiple times, expanding the set
-t TRACEBACK_INCLUDE_REGEX, --traceback-include=TRACEBACK_INCLUDE_REGEX
  a regexp expression that the Python traceback must match or will be discarded. Can be called multiple times, expanding the set
-r, --keep-request-id
  Use request and thread ids to handle every match as a different entry

Results

Let's explain the results:

Stats from 2012-11-14 00:02:07 to 2012-11-15 09:55:41
...
----
2 /VirtualHostBase/http/yoursite.com:80/siteid/VirtualHostRoot/foo/bar
    25 - 3654.05561542 (1:00:54.055615) - from 2012-11-15 07:48:10 to 2012-11-15 08:45:29

----
1 /VirtualHostBase/http/yoursite.com:80/siteid/VirtualHostRoot/baz
    77 - 16029.3731236 (4:27:09.373124) - from 2012-11-15 07:43:55 to 2012-11-15 08:45:30

You'll get a rank of slowest request paths (top one is fastest, last one is slowest). The order is done by collecting all request's performed to the same path and then getting the total time.

This mean that a request called only once that needs 30 seconds is faster that another path that only requires 10 seconds, but is called ten times (30x1 < 10x10).

If you use also the --keep-request-id option, every request is count as a separate entry, so the output change a little:

Single entry meaning

Every entry gives that kind of data:

Entry position                       Called path
     |                                   |
     1 /VirtualHostBase/http/yoursite.com:80/siteid/VirtualHostRoot/...
         15 - 171.913325071 (0:02:51.913325) - from 2012-09-19 08:30:34 to 2012-09-19 09:00:58
         |         |                |                       |                       |
     Times called  |      Time needed (human readable)      |                       |
                   |                                        |              Slow request end date
          Time needed (in seconds)                Slow request start date

When --keep-request-id used:

Entry position                       Called path
     |                                   |
     1 /VirtualHostBase/http/yoursite.com:80/siteid/VirtualHostRoot/...
         1750.49365091 (0:29:10.493651) - from 2012-09-19 08:30:34 to 2012-09-19 09:00:58
             |              |                           |                      |
 Time needed (in seconds)   |                 Slow request start date          |
                            |                                                  |
                   Time needed (human readable)                       Slow request end date

Please note that the "Time needed" info is machine computation time.
