The timing log

The timing_log_check.pl is available in webwork2/bin and parses the timing log data found in webwork2/logs/timing.log.

To run the script, cd to the WeBWorK logs directory (usually /opt/webwork/webwork2/logs) and enter the command: timing_log_check.pl

Note: The daily backup routine was moved from 12 midnight (a busy time for students to do work) to 6:00am. This seems to have resulted if fewer operations taking a long time.

Note: This server had two "out of memory" events which brought the server down due to a freebsd kernel setting that we should have tweaked but didn't until we understood the problem. This isn't a concern with the linux kernel or 64bit freebsd machines. These two events probably account for most of the requests on the high end.
