NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile - DBI profiling plugin

SYNOPSIS

    # Set env in apache or in perl.
    $ENV{DBI_PROFILE} = '2/CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile::Driver';
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::DevPopup;
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile;

    The rest of your application follows
    ...

INSTALLATION

To install this module, run the following commands:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make 
    make test
    make install

DESCRIPTION

CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile provides popup (using CAP::DevPopup if available) holding DBI Profile information (see DBI::Profile, DBI::ProfileDumper). It will output both graphed output and a DBI::ProfileDumper report.

CONFIGURATION

To enable, set the DBI_PROFILE environment variables. For example

in apache config for cgi
    SetVar DBI_PROFILE 2/CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile::Driver
    SetVar CAP_DBIPROFILE_EXEC 1
in apache config for mod_perl
    PerlSetVar DBI_PROFILE 2/CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile::Driver
    PerlSetVar CAP_DBIPROFILE_EXEC 1
in your CAP module
    BEGIN {
        $ENV{DBI_PROFILE} = '2/CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile::Driver';
        $ENV{CAP_DBIPROFILE_EXEC} = 1;
    }

If you disable it, be sure to unset the DBI_PROFILE env var, as it will continue to accumulate stats regardless of the setting of CAP_DBIPROFILE_EXEC, you just won't see them.

MODES OF OPERATION

It has two modes of opperation; per-request or per-process. In a CGI environment, there is no difference.

per-request - this is the default.
per-process - set the following env var to a true value.
    CAP_DBIPROFILE_PERPROCESS 1

Under mod_perl, the per-request setup will show the DBI Profile specific to each page hit. The per-process setup will show the DBI Profile that has accumulated for the life of the apache process you are hitting.

Please note, running under the per-process setting can cause your memory usage to grow significantly, as the profile data is never cleared.

GRAPHING PLUGINS

The default graphing module is CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile::Graph::HTML, which generates a minimal inline HTML graph. To change which graphing plugin is used, it's just another environment variable (no need to set this if you like the default).

    CAP_DBIPROFILE_GRAPHMODULE Your::Graph::Module::Name

Please see CGI::Application::Plugin::DBIProfile::Graph::HTML for information on writing new graph modules.

TODO

Tests. None exist at this time.

Other graphing plugins (Plotr, Open Flash Chart, GraphML using Graph::Easy).

Add checks to be sure $dbh->{Profile} isn't disabled (probably better in ::Driver).
