NAME ^

Apache::Status - Embedded interpreter status information

SYNOPSIS ^

 <Location /perl-status>
 SetHandler  perl-script
 PerlHandler Apache::Status
 </Location>

DESCRIPTION ^

The Apache::Status module provides some information about the status of the Perl interpreter embedded in the server.

Configure like so:

 <Location /perl-status>
 SetHandler  perl-script
 PerlHandler Apache::Status
 </Location>

Other modules can "plugin" a menu item like so:

 Apache::Status->menu_item(
    'DBI' => "DBI connections", #item for Apache::DBI module
    sub {
        my($r,$q) = @_; #request and CGI objects
        my(@strings);
        push @strings,  "blobs of html";
        return \@strings;     #return an array ref
    }
 ) if Apache->module("Apache::Status"); #only if Apache::Status is loaded

WARNING: Apache::Status must be loaded before these modules via the PerlModule or PerlRequire directives.

OPTIONS ^

StatusOptionsAll

This single directive will enable all of the options described below.

 PerlSetVar StatusOptionsAll On
StatusDumper

When browsing symbol tables, the values of arrays, hashes ans calars can be viewed via Data::Dumper if this configuration variable is set to On:

 PerlSetVar StatusDumper On
StatusPeek

With this option On and the Apache::Peek module installed, functions and variables can be viewed ala Devel::Peek style:

 PerlSetVar StatusPeek On
StatusLexInfo

With this option On and the B::LexInfo module installed, subroutine lexical variable information can be viewed.

 PerlSetVar StatusLexInfo On
StatusDeparse

With this option On and B::Deparse version 0.59 or higher (included in Perl 5.005_59+), subroutines can be "deparsed".

 PerlSetVar StatusDeparse On

Options can be passed to B::Deparse::new like so:

 PerlSetVar StatusDeparseOptions "-p -sC"

See the B::Deparse manpage for details.

StatusTerse

With this option On, text-based op tree graphs of subroutines can be displayed, thanks to B::Terse.

 PerlSetVar StatusTerse On
StatusTerseSize

With this option On and the B::TerseSize module installed, text-based op tree graphs of subroutines and their size can be displayed. See the B::TerseSize docs for more info.

 PerlSetVar StatusTerseSize On
StatusTerseSizeMainSummary

With this option On and the B::TerseSize module installed, a "Memory Usage" will be added to the Apache::Status main menu. This option is disabled by default, as it can be rather cpu intensive to summarize memory usage for the entire server. It is strongly suggested that this option only be used with a development server running in -X mode, as the results will be cached.

 PerlSetVar StatusTerseSizeMainSummary On
StatusGraph

When StatusDumper is enabled, another link "OP Tree Graph" will be present with the dump if this configuration variable is set to On:

 PerlSetVar StatusGraph

This requires the B module (part of the Perl compiler kit) and B::Graph (version 0.03 or higher) module to be installed along with the dot program.

Dot is part of the graph visualization toolkit from AT&T: http://www.research.att.com/sw/tools/graphviz/).

WARNING: Some graphs may produce very large images, some graphs may produce no image if B::Graph's output is incorrect.

Dot

Location of the dot program for StatusGraph, if other than /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin

GraphDir

Directory where StatusGraph should write it's temporary image files. Default is $ServerRoot/logs/b_graphs

PREREQUISITES ^

The Devel::Symdump module, version 2.00 or higher.
