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.

  • Analyzes Rails logs (all versions) and Merb logs
  • Can combine multiple files (handy if you are using logrotate)
  • Uses several metrics (cumulative time, average time, blockers, DB time, etc)
  • Low memory footprint (server-safe)
  • MIT licensed
  • Fast

Installation

sudo gem install wvanbergen-request-log-analyzer --source http://gems.github.com

Usage

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

  --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
  --install rails, -i rails:  Install Rails task rake log:analyze
