Convenience functions for microstate accounting
This module implements some convenience functions for analyzing
microstate accounting data. For details about how to use the basic api and
what the different states represent see

This first command enables microstate accounting for 1000 milliseconds.
start/1 for more details.
The second command prints the statistics gathered during that time.
First three general statistics are printed.
Then one column per state is printed with a the percentage of time this thread spent in the state out of it's own real-time. After the thread specific time, the accumulated time for each type of thread is printed in a similar format.
Since we have the average real-time and the percentage spent in each
state we can easily calculate the time spent in each state by multiplying
Average thread real-time with
Thread state %, i.e. to
get the time Scheduler 1 spent in the emulator state we do
1000513us * 0.13% = 1300us.
A map containing the different microstate accounting states and the number of microseconds spent in it.
A map containing information about a specific thread. The
percentages in the map can be either run-time or real-time depending
realtime was requested from
system is the
percentage of total system time for this specific thread.
A map containing the different microstate accounting states. Each
value in the map contains another map with the percentage of time that
this thread has spent in the specific state. Both the percentage of
system time and the time for that specific
thread is part of
The different states that a thread can be in. See erlang:statistics(microstate_accounting) for details.
The different options that can be given to
This function checks whether microstate accounting is available or not.
Start microstate accounting. Returns whether it was previously enabled or disabled.
Resets all counters and then starts microstate accounting for the given milliseconds.
Stop microstate accounting. Returns whether is was previously enabled or disabled.
Reset microstate accounting counters. Returns whether is was enabled or disabled.
Prints the current microstate accounting to standard out.
Print the given microstate statistics values to stdout.
Print the given microstate statistics values to standard out. With many states this can be quite verbose. See the top of this reference manual for a brief description of what the fields mean.
It is possible to print more specific types of statistics by
first manipulating the
For instance if you want to print the percentage of run-time for each
thread you can do:
If you want to only print run-time per thread type you can do:
Print the given microstate statistics values to the given file
or device. The other arguments behave the same way as for
Returns a runtime system independent version of the microstate
statistics data presented by
All counters have been normalized to be in microsecond resolution.
Returns the system time for the given microstate statistics values. System time is the accumulated time of all threads.
Returns fractions of real-time or run-time spent in the various threads from the given microstate statistics values.
Returns a list of microstate statistics values where the values for all threads of the same type has been merged.
Dumps the current microstate statistics counters to a file that can be parsed with file:consult/1.
Read a file dump produced by to_file(Filename).
