LD Meter Utility Usage Guide

What?

The meter is a stored procedure that records the CPU time, count of reads, cumulative elapsed time spent waiting for I/O, and other metrics. The code for this procedure (for 7 Single; this file will not work on Virtuoso 6 or earlier).

Why?

While we may know principles, I/O has always given us surprises; the only way to optimize this is to measure.

How?

To use the LD Meter Utility:

  1. Load the ldmeter.sql script into your Virtuoso instance;
  2. Run ld_meter_run(N) to set the time interval in seconds in which the meter should be run which gets written to the ld_metric table which will contain data for the form:
SQL> SELECT TOP 5 * FROM ld_metric;
lm_id             lm_dt                lm_first_id  lm_secs_since_start  lm_n_rows            lm_cpu      lm_n_reads           lm_read_time  lm_read_pct       lm_rows_per_s     lm_cpu_pct        lm_rusage
INTEGER NOT NULL  TIMESTAMP            INTEGER     INTEGER     INTEGER              INTEGER     INTEGER              INTEGER     DOUBLE PRECISION  DOUBLE PRECISION  DOUBLE PRECISION  VARCHAR
