# This script demonstrates the usage of hooks to gather runtime statistics.
# Also a simple web interface is provide for peeking at the data.
# Note that these RPS stats differ from those gathered by ab(1)
#    by a factor of roughly 1.5
# Would probably be closer to reality in case of real app with database
#    and lots of logic inside, though.

# Set path => '/interesting' in all three of the below hooks
#      to limit statictics to just interesting path.
