Subject Re: Query Performance Calculation question
Date Tue, 19 Nov 2013 00:58:34 GMT
This is going to be interesting, you really need the time calculated in/at
the Controller.  Since this is for active develop of 0.3, I would like to
bring up something I have been thinking about for awhile.  A
monitor/metrics recording process.  The base idea is to remove the status
functionality, metrics gathering, query recording, etc. from the
controllers and shards and move them into this process.

I think that the CpuTimes will tell you how much computational time was
spent calculating the answer.  The rest of the time is likely the CPU
blocking on IO.  So to get the query time you will need to use the
starttime and you will also need the end time.  Strangely I don't see where
we record that at all.  :-/  So we should probably create and issue and do

Hope this helps.
