Announcing the release of Mod_Telemetry

I’m releasing my apache module which has been extremely helpful to me in performance tracking, and large site analysis.

mod_telemetry keeps track of all URLs on your site and how long it takes your server to deliver each request. It reports these by using a status handler (like Apache’s /server-status) to display real-time status information about the performance of your site.

It is extremely useful in optimizing back-end processes (for example, when connecting to Java, FastCGI, or Ruby back-ends) to identify when specific pages are performing slowly.

Because it runs in the server, it’s able to show end-to-end performance on each request

It requires that mod_status be enabled to work.

An initial version of this code is available on google code. Please help me debug and expand it’s capabilities.

I recommend you checkout the SVN trunk and not download the tar. It works with Apache 2.x and 2.2.x.

    I saw http://www.retina.net/tech/announcing-the-relea… and wanted to mention a useful site: http://www.FreePatentsOnline.com

    It provides free patent searching, free PDF downloading, allows annoting documents and sharing them, and free alerts for new documents.

    If you have a spot, a link to let your users know abou the site would be great.
