Perlbal::Manual::Debugging

NAME

Perlbal::Manual::Debugging − Debugging Perlbal

VERSION
Perlbal 1.78.

DESCRIPTION
Perlbal has two ways of debugging.

One of them is through a management console; the other is through debugging messages.

Debugging in a console
You’ll need to set up a management service and use it to dump all the information you require.

The comprehensive documentation on this process can be found at Perlbal::Manual::Management.

Debugging messages
You can control the ammount of debugging messages Perlbal dumps by setting the environment variable "PERLBAL_DEBUG" to a value between 0 and 4:

    PERLBAL_DEBUG = 0 # no debug
    PERLBAL_DEBUG = 4 # debug everything

Debug level 1

You can activate basic debug by setting "PERLBAL_DEBUG" to 1:

    PERLBAL_DEBUG = 1

The following debugging messages are turned on:

When a connection to a backend is closed, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints "Backend $self is done; closing..."

When a connection to a backend is killed, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "Client ($self) closing backend ($backend)"

When an HTTP request fails to be parsed, Perlbal::HTTPHeaders prints "HTTP parse failure: $reason"

When the connection is promoted to SSL , Perlbal::TCPListener prints " .. socket upgraded to SSL!"

Debug level 2

By setting the debug level to 2 you’ll get all the messages from level 1.

    PERLBAL_DEBUG = 2

You will also get a few others:

When a connection to a backend is opened and ready to be written to, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints "Backend $self is writeable!"

When a response is about to be handled, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints "BackendHTTP: handle_response"

When a backend is ready to be read from, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints "Backend $self is readable!"

When there’s an error with the connection to the backend, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints "BACKEND event_err"

Whenever we’re determining if we should be sending keep-alive header information back to the client, Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints "ClientHTTPBase::setup_keepalive($self)"

Whenever the client is ready for more of its file, Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints "REPROXY SSL done"

Right after we’ve read a chunk of a file and when a reproxy request is about to be sent, Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints "REPROXY Sent: $sent"

When we’ve written all data in the queue (and are about to stop waiting for write notifications), Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints "All writing done to $self"

Whenever a client proxy is about to be closed, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "Perlbal::ClientProxy closed", followed by a possible "again" and a possible "saying $reason"

When a client has disconnected, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "ClientProxy::client_disconnected"

When a backend requests a client of a high priority request and the client is available, "Service" in Perlbal prints "Got from fast queue, in front of $backlog others"

When a backend requests a client of a normal priority request and the client is available, "Service" in Perlbal prints "Backend requesting client, got PRIORITY = $cp−"{fd}.>

When a backend requests a client of a low priority request and the client is available, "Service" in Perlbal prints "Backend requesting client, got low priority = $cp−"{fd}.>

When header are being read, Perlbal::Socket prints "Perlbal::Socket::read_headers($self) is_res=$is_res"

Debug level 3

    PERLBAL_DEBUG = 3

By setting the debug level to 3 you’ll get all the messages from level 1 and 2 plus the following:

Right before response headers are written to the client, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints " writing response headers to client"

As we’re writing to the client, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints " content_length=VALUE" and " remain=VALUE", where the values are "undef" if they are not defined

If we’re done writing to the client, Perlbal::BackendHTTP prints " done. detaching."

Whenever we’re determining if we should be sending keep-alive header information back to the client, Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints " service's persist_client = $persist_client"

While determining if we should be sending keep-alive header information back to the client, if we were sent "content−length" or it’s a head request, as we’re doing a keep alive Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints " doing keep−alive to client"

If we’re not sending keep-alive header information back ot the client, Perlbal::ClientHTTPBase prints " doing connection: close"

Right after we’ve finished sending all of the results to the user, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "ClientProxy::backend_finished"

When we’ve sent a response to a user fully and we need to reset state, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "ClientProxy::http_response_sent −− resetting state"

When we’re writing a response to a client, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "ClientProxy::event_write"

After writing a response to a client, if it is still connected and we’re triggering trigger our backend to keep reading, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " unstalling backend"

When reading a request, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints "ClientProxy::event_read"

When reading a request and just before we read the headers, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " no headers. reading."

When reading a request, if we’re not buffering to disk or we’re no longer reading, as we disable reads, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " disabling reads."

As we’re reading, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " reading $read_size bytes (VALUE bytes remain)", where "VALUE bytes remain" can be <undef>

After each read, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " read $len bytes"

After we finished reading the request, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " done_reading = $done_reading, backend = BACKEND", where "BACKEND" can be "undef"

When we send the headers to the backend and it responds before we’re done reading from the client, further reads from the client are discarded; in this situation Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " already responded.". If the client continues to send data, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " already responded [2]." and then gives up on reading

After reading, and having a backend available where we can write to, just before we do, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " got a backend. sending write to it."

After reading, if there’s no backend available, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " no backend. read_ahead = $self−"{read_ahead}.>

If we know we’ve already started spooling a file to disk and we’re about to continue doing so, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " bureason = $self−"{bureason}>

If a backend wasn’t available and we’re about to request one, Perlbal::ClientProxy prints " finally requesting a backend"

When we’re trying to read headers and the client has disconnected, Perlbal::Socket prints " client disconnected"

If we need to remove a trailing "\r\n" from the headers, Perlbal::Socket prints " throwing away leading \r\n"

If we’ve read a packet with headers and by the end of it we can’t find the end of them, Perlbal::Socket prints " can't find end of headers"

Once we’ve read some headers, Perlbal::Socket prints " pre−parsed headers: [$hstr]"

After reading headers, if there’s additional content that we’ve read, we push it back; when we do so, Perlbal::Socket prints " pushing back $len bytes after header"

If we got bogus headers, and right before we close the connection due to a parsing failure, Perlbal::Socket prints " bogus headers"

If we got valid headers, Perlbal::Socket prints " got valid headers"

If we’re reading buffered data from a client, Perlbal::Socket prints "draining readbuf from $self to $dest: [$$bref]"

Debug level 4

By setting the debug level to 4 you get all the messages from levels 1 to 3.

Plus, "write" is redefined so that whenever "write" is called it first prints "write($self, <$clen>"$content") from ($pkg, $filename, $line)".

    PERLBAL_DEBUG = 4
