Request Logging module


The Request Logging module captures web service requests and saves summary details to a new table, request_log_entries. Details include the duration of the request so this table can bee analysed to identify performance bottlenecks. Because the table will rapidly fill up you might like to only enable the module whilst collecting statistics and disable it again afterwards.


Before enabling the module, copy the file /modules/request_logging/config/request_logging.example.php to a new file in the same folder called request_logging.php. The various types of events that can be logged are documented in the $config[‘logged_requests’] variable inside this file so edit the file and change these if necessary. For example if you know you are looking into the performance of reports you can comment out the values except

Once the file is edited you can enable the module by adding to the list in application/config/config.php then visit /index.php/home/upgrade to install the required tables.

After a while, check the contents of request_log_entries to confirm that events are being logged. You can truncate this table at any point to restart logging from that point.

TRUNCATE TABLE request_log_entries;
