Back To Rails: Sorting a Rails log by SQL Duration

This is something I just stumbled upon. And here's what I did to it.


Rails’ ActiveRecord logger writes log files like: Post Load (735.8ms) SELECT posts.* FROM posts where post.title = 'rkship' You may want to know the longest SQL queries for performance optimsation purposes, and general troubleshooting(my case). To list recent queries in order of duration, with longest queries shown last, I used this: head -10000 development.log | grep '([0-9.]+ms)' | sed 's/.(([[:digit:].]+)ms./\1ms &/g' | sort -n (The sed expression was a little more work than I’d bargained for as sed regular expressions are always lazy; even with GNU/Posix extensions, non-lazy just doesn’t exist.)
