Trace outgoing http requests for an http server and track the time spent doing CPU intensive workload during each such request and more.
When optimizing app's performance, requests to a remote server can turn out to
be the bottleneck.
breakdown helps identify such scenarios and provides
insights into the latency and CPU usage for such requests as well as for the
server endpoints themselves.
const Breakdown = ;const b = ;bstart'/path/to/log';const middleware = b;;
Resulting log can be formatted into a (arguably) pretty markdown file using (inarguably) ugly procedure (to be improved in the future):
git clone git://github.com/indutny/breakdowncd breakdownnpm inode tools/analyze.js /path/to/log > pretty.md
Events are logged into a newline separated JSON objects:
id- unique event id
ts- timestamp of the event in seconds (unix time)
payload- a payload object dependent on the
type- type of the event
parentId- event id of the parent or
meta- various fields pertaining to particular type of event.
- anything specific to particular event type.
spin- total CPU time in seconds spent during this event and its children
selfSpin- total CPU time in seconds spent during this event.
Supported Asynchronous Events
So far the only supported events are:
- HTTP Server requests
- HTTP Client requests
- DNS lookups
How does this work?
This work through use of
async_hooks APIs and some unfortunate use of
Node.js (semi-) internal code.
Which Node.js versions are supported?
The module was tested on Node.js versions starting from v10 and up to v14.
