MethodProfiler

MethodProfiler collects performance information about the methods in your objects and creates reports to help you identify slow methods. The collected data can be sorted in various ways, converted into an array, or pretty printed as a table.

Basic usage

Create a new profiler by passing the object you want to profile to MethodProfiler.observe. All future class and instance methods called on your object will be recorded by the profiler. To see the results of the profiling as a table, simply print out the report returned by #report on the profiler object.

profiler = MethodProfiler.observe(MyClass)

MyClass.labore_voluptatum
MyClass.labore_voluptatum

my_obj = MyClass.new

my_obj.accusamus_est
my_obj.accusamus_est
my_obj.accusamus_est

puts profiler.report

The resulting chart includes each method, the minimum time it took to run, the maximum time, the average across all calls, and the total number of times it was called. Class methods are prefixed by a . and instance methods are prefixed with a #.

Reporting

MethodProfiler::Profiler#report actually returns a report object which can be used to sort and display the data in various ways. A report has chainable #sort_by and #order methods to control the sorting of the report when it is ultimately displayed. The report can be turned into an array by calling #to_a and the table shown above by calling #to_s.

Example of sorting by the number of total calls, ascending:

puts profiler.report.sort_by(:total_calls).order(:ascending)

#sort_by accepts a symbol or string with the name of any of the columns in the table: :method, :min, :max, :average, :total_time, or :total_calls.

#order accepts a symbol or string of :ascending or :descending. These can also be abbreviated with :asc and :desc.
