BenchmarkForRails v0.1 (aka "it exists")

Hey y’all,

I decided to hack up a small benchmarking plugin for Rails. This is pretty much like the Rails’ benchmarking you see in your logs, except that it benchmarks:

  • the entire process lifecycle, including …

  • before filters

  • after filters

  • session initialization

  • time spent in ActiveRecord::Base.find (more encompassing than DB access)

And it also makes adding new benchmarks incredibly simple. For example:

BenchmarkForRails.watch(“linking”, ActionView::Helpers::UrlHelper, :link_to)

Check it out and let me know where it should go from here!
