Telemetry Instrument Pod
Note: This class is a Rakudo-specific feature and not standard Perl 6.
use Telemetry;.set-instruments(<Usage ThreadPool>); # default setting
One usually does not create any
Telemetry::Sampler objects: when the Telemetry module is loaded, a
Telemetry::Sampler object is automatically created in the
$*SAMPLER dynamic variable.
An object of the
Telemetry::Sampler class knows about which instruments to use when making a snapshot.
method new(Telemetry::Sampler: --> Telemetry::Sampler)
new method takes a list of instruments. If no instruments are specified, then it will look at the
RAKUDO_TELEMETRY_INSTRUMENTS environment variable to find specification of instruments. If that is not available either, then Thread::Instrument::Usage and Thread::Instrument::ThreadPool will be assumed.
Instruments can be specified by either the type object of the instrument class (e.g.
Telemetry::Instrument::Usage) or by a string, in which case it will be automatically prefixed with "Telemetry::Instrument::", so "Usage" would be the same as
method set-instruments(Telemetry::Sampler --> Nil)
Allows one to change the instruments on an existing
Instrument::Sampler object. Generally only used by calling it on the
$*SAMPLER dynamic variable. Takes the same parameters as new, except that specifying no instruments will actually remove all of the instruments, effectively blocking any snap taking.
