BenchmarkRequires is a simple gem that helps identify slow loading libraries.
As applications get older and more complex the start-up time tends to increase quite dramatically. BenchmarkRequires helps by logging all requires/load and load times.
To use benchmark_requires simply require and initialize the library as early in your application's loading process as possible. All necessary configuration will be handled "just in time" when the first require/load is benchmarked.
require 'benchmark_requires' BenchmarkRequires.setup! # now load the rest of your app
Startup your application and keep an eye on STDOUT (don't worry, you can change this too).
Using a Custom Logger and Log Action
By default benchmark_requires uses
Logger and all logged actions will be sent
:debug. Changing these defaults is easy.
require 'benchmark_requires' BenchmarkRequires.logger = Rails.logger BenchmarkRequires.logger = Logger.new STDERR BenchmarkRequires.logger = Logger.new nil BenchmarkRequires.log_action = lambda do |logger, message| logger.info message end # super basic log action. BenchmarkRequires.log_action = lambda do |logger, message| puts message end BenchmarkRequires.setup! # etc, etc, etc
- More tests.
- Better support for custom loggers.
