mhearse has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I work at a java shop. We use Dynatrace for realtime profiling of java apps. By realtime I mean a continuous flow of XMLRPC/SOAP messages to a profiling service. The profile software of course has a gui.

That got me wondering about perl. Does it have a similar methodology for realtime profiling of web services (or any service)? I suppose that could include mod_perl stuff too.

Examples of realtime profiling info I'm talking about:
*sql query execution time
*connections to other services
*code block execution time
*memory consumption
*cpu time consumption
*regex optimization

To be clear.. by service I basically mean a daemon.

    From what I can see dynaTrace is not language dependent, so I presume you can use it for processing your Perl apps too.
    A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.
