NAME

dbilogstrip - filter to normalize DBI trace logs for diff’ing

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

Read DBI trace file dbitrace.log and write out a stripped version to dbitrace_stripped.log



  dbilogstrip dbitrace.log > dbitrace_stripped.log



Run yourscript.pl twice, each with different sets of arguments, with DBI_TRACE enabled. Filter the output and trace through dbilogstrip into a separate file for each run. Then compare using diff. (This example assumes you’re using a standard shell.)



  DBI_TRACE=2 perl yourscript.pl ...args1... 2>&1 | dbilogstrip > dbitrace1.log
  DBI_TRACE=2 perl yourscript.pl ...args2... 2>&1 | dbilogstrip > dbitrace2.log
  diff -u dbitrace1.log dbitrace2.log



DESCRIPTION

Replaces any hex addresses, e.g, 0x128f72ce with 0xN.

Replaces any references to process id or thread id, like pid#6254 with pidN.

So a DBI trace line like this:



  -> STORE for DBD::DBM::st (DBI::st=HASH(0x19162a0)~0x191f9c8 f_params ARRAY(0x1922018)) thr#1800400



will look like this:



  -> STORE for DBD::DBM::st (DBI::st=HASH(0xN)~0xN f_params ARRAY(0xN)) thrN
