@jfindlay jfindlay commented Jul 1, 2020

Originally from @ferringb.

What does this PR do?

Add the profile jinja block to enable profiling of individual lines or blocks within sls files and enable the same profile mechanism for import_yaml, import_json, import_text.

What issues does this PR fix or reference?

Fixes: #57849


When working with a very large codebase, it becomes more important to trace inefficiencies with state and pillar render times. The profile jinja block enables the user to get finely detailed information on the most expensive areas in the codebase.

Looks good thanks for the PR!

For some of the more complex salt code--or when salt functions lack
timing stats themselves--it's desirable to be able to do thus:
{%- profile as 'inner test' %}
< jinja-code >
{%- endprofile %}
And get a log line like thus:
2019-08-05 22:10:59,531 [salt.utils.jinja ][PROFILE ][26803] Time (in seconds) to render profile block 'inner test': 5.96046447754e-06

This commit adds a new `profile` block tag that emits these log

The same machinery used to support the `profile` block tag is also wired
into `import_*` blocks.  For example:
{%- import grains.sls as 'blah' %}
results in the following log statement:
2019-08-05 22:10:59,542 [salt.utils.jinja ][PROFILE ][26803] Time (in seconds) to render import_yaml 'grains.sls': 0.0106961727142

The pre-commit errors are not from my changes. It looks like you've enforced CI style checks before refactoring the codebase.
