Adds instrumentation to several ends in ActionController::Base. It also provides some hooks related with process_action. This allows an ORM like Active Record and/or DataMapper to plug in ActionController and show related information.

Check ActiveRecord::Railties::ControllerRuntime for an example.

append_info_to_payload(payload)

Every time after an action is processed, this method is invoked with the payload, so you can add more information.

# File actionpack/lib/action_controller/metal/instrumentation.rb, line 94
def append_info_to_payload(payload) # :doc:
  payload[:view_runtime] = view_runtime
end

cleanup_view_runtime()

A hook which allows you to clean up any time, wrongly taken into account in views, like database querying time.

def cleanup_view_runtime
  super - time_taken_in_something_expensive
end
# File actionpack/lib/action_controller/metal/instrumentation.rb, line 88
def cleanup_view_runtime # :doc:
  yield
