Dancer::Plugin::TimeRequests - log how long requests take and which routes are slow


A simple Dancer plugin to log how long each request took to process, and also to gather stats on the average response time for each route - so you can see at a glance which routes are taking longer than you'd like, therefore where you ought to start looking to improve performance.

Provides a statistics page giving you a list of your routes, along with their response times.


In your Dancer app, load this module:

    use Dancer::Plugin::TimeRequests;

Then, when your app is logging in debug mode, log messages will be generated showing how logn each request took:

    Request to /foo completed in 4.0011 seconds in ....

To see which routes are slow, hit the URL /plugin-timerequests.
