Returns

ColdFusion structure that contains metric data, depending on the mode value.

GetMetricData(mode)

History

ColdFusion MX: Deprecated the cachepops parameter. It might not work, and it might cause an error, in later releases.

Parameters

Parameter

Option

Description

mode

perf_monitor

Returns internal data, in a structure.To receive data, enable PerfMonitor in ColdFusion Administrator before executing the function. On Windows, this data is otherwise displayed in the Windows PerfMonitor.

 

simple_load

Returns an integer value that is computed from the state of the server's internal queues. Indicates the overall server load.

 

prev_req_time

Returns the time, in milliseconds, that it took the server to process the previous request.

 

avg_req_time

Returns the average time, in milliseconds, that it takes the server to process a request.Changing the setting to 0 prevents the server from calculating the average and removes overhead associated with gathering data.The default value is 120 seconds.

Usage

If mode = "perf_monitor", the function returns a structure with these data fields:

Field

Description

InstanceName

The name of the ColdFusion server. The default value is cfserver.

PageHits

Number of HTTP requests received since ColdFusion was started.

ReqQueued

Number of HTTP requests in the staging queue, waiting for processing.

DBHits

Number of database requests since the server was started.

ReqRunning

Number of HTTP requests currently running. In the ColdFusion Administrator, you can set the maximum number of requests that run concurrently.

ErrorCount

Number of HTTP requests that failed while in the staging queue or during processing.

BytesIn

Number of bytes in HTTP requests to ColdFusion.

BytesOut

Number of bytes in HTTP responses from ColdFusion.

AvgQueueTime

For the last two HTTP requests (current and previous), the average length of time the request waited in the staging queue.

AvgReqTime

For the last two HTTP requests (current and previous), the average length of time the server required to process the request

AvgDBTime

For the last two HTTP requests (current and previous), the average length of time the server took to process CFQueries in the request.

cachepops

This parameter is deprecated. ColdFusion automatically sets its value to -1.

Example

<!--- This example gets and displays metric data from Windows NT PerfMonitor --->
<cfset pmData = GetMetricData( "PERF_MONITOR" ) >
<cfoutput>
Current PerfMonitor data is: <p>
InstanceName: #pmData.InstanceName# <p>
PageHits: #pmData.PageHits# <p>
ReqQueued: #pmData.ReqQueued# <p>
DBHits: #pmData.DBHits# <p>
ReqRunning: #pmData.ReqRunning# <p>
ErrorCount: #pmData.ErrorCount# <p>
BytesIn: #pmData.BytesIn# <p>
BytesOut: #pmData.BytesOut# <p>
AvgQueueTime: #pmData.AvgQueueTime# <p>
AvgReqTime: #pmData.AvgReqTime# <p>
AvgDBTime: #pmData.AvgDBTime# <p>
</cfoutput>
