NAME

Log::Timer - track nested timing information

VERSION

version 1.0.1

SYNOPSIS

  use Log::Timer;

  sub some_action {
      my $sub_timer = subroutine_timer();
      # do things
      ...
  }

FUNCTIONS

timer

  my $timer1 = timer('GET /foo');
  my $timer2 = timer('update_all_things');
  my $timer3 = timer('fetching data from DB', {
                   prefix  => $request_url,
                   context => $request_id,
               });

Start a timer. When the returned object gets destroyed, logs the time elapsed (at trace level).

All timers with the same $message contribute to a set of stats, see report_timing_stats

The prefix is just added in front of the log message.

Timers started "inside" other timers will get logged indented, so that you can see the breakdown of any outer timings. If you need to capture several timer metrics at the same level, you can pass indent_increase => 0 after the first timer.

If you're running a set of asynchronous tasks, using the same context for each logical task (using for example a request id) will ensure that the nested indenting makes sense.

subroutine_timer

  my $timer1 = subroutine_timer();
  my $timer2 = subroutine_timer($message, {
                   prefix  => $request_url,
                   context => $request_id,
                   depth   => 2,
               });

Same as "timer", but the $message is automatically prefixed with the name of the current subroutine. You can pass a depth option (defaults to 1) to pick a sub further up the call stack.

report_timing_stats

   Log::Timer::report_timing_stats();

Logs (at info level) some statistical information about the timers ran until now, grouped by message. Then clears the stored values.

This is also called automatically at END time.

clear_timing_stats

   Log::Timer::clear_timing_stats();

Clears all values stored for statistical purposes.
