Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

[ #18204 ]
All I seem to do these days is to write monitoring tools. sky prodded me to investigate getting Apache to give decent information on how long requests take to process. It has a T option which can report in seconds, but that's way too low resolution. May I present mod_stopwatch, which gives microsecond resolution: - - [02/Apr/2004:17:22:48 +0100] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 1456 (1525 usecs) - - [02/Apr/2004:17:22:48 +0100] "GET /apache_pb.gif HTTP/1.1" 200 2326 (89 usecs)

Note that the index page takes longer than the GIF as it must go through mod_dir etc. Now if only there was an CAAN to upload this to...
