Identify processing time at each layer

Hi,

I have created a sample web application in which there is a servlet.logic and dao layer.
I want to check how much time is taken at each layer while processing the request.,

Web application server is tomcat.

Is there any tool which can be configured in tomcat to achieve the above requirement?

You can do it bu using System.currentTimeMillis().

Put a long start = System.currentTimeMillis(); before entering the layer. Then put a long finish = System.currentTimeMillis(); when exiting the layer. Then simply subtract start from finish.

suppose there are 10,000 files and if we start doing like this it is time consuming.
What i need a open source too,or configuration which can meet the requirement.

It's not easy to distinguish between software levels, so I don't think there is an automated tool to do this. But some other expert might have moire knowledge on this matter.

I believe JAMon should actually provide what you are looking for , not out of the box  but with some customization.

Jamon is a text template engine for Java, useful for generating dynamic HTML, XML, or any text-based content. In a typical Model-View-Controller architecture, Jamon clearly is aimed at the View (or presentation) layer.

how can it achieve in Identify processing time at each layer?

I think you can do this using a regular profiler - assuming your classes are sensibly named.

Start with a profiler (I like visualvm - http://visualvm.java.net/).
This allows you to see the overall performance of your application and where it's spending the most time.
Run your app and collect this overall data first.  (You don't need to modify tomcat for this sort of profiler - you just start it up and point visualvm at it).

However, it you want to specifically break the profiling into layers, you could do that by setting the "profiling roots" (see this article: https://blogs.oracle.com/nbprofiler/entry/profiling_with_visualvm_part_2) to the classes in your DAO layer (this is assuming the class name allows you to identify which layer it's in).

Run your app, collect this profile data.

Now if you subtract the time spent in the overall profile from the time spent in the DAO layer you have the time spent in the layer above the DAO.  If it's just 2 tier you're done.  But if you have a 3rd tier, you can then set your roots to your servlet classes and repeat the process.  Again, the different between the profiling data gives you the time spent in the layer.

It's not trivial, but you should be able to get everything you need in an afternoon.

Hope that helps,

Doug
