Monitor your CPU usage in your OCaml application

LogSnag makes it easy to track your OCaml application and monitor your CPU usage.

When building a OCaml application, we often have to think and deal with performance issues. Performance is a critical aspect of any application and can significantly affect the user experience. One of the most common performance issues for OCaml applications is when the workload is CPU bound. This means that the application spends most of its time waiting for the CPU to complete a task.

In such cases, monitoring our OCaml application's CPU usage and setting up a system to track when use goes above a certain threshold is essential. This way, we can always be aware of the performance of our application. Furthermore, in cases of a performance issue, for example, when the CPU usage goes above a certain threshold, we can take immediate action and fix the problem before it becomes a significant issue.

Fortunately, here at LogSnag, we have created a powerful solution for this problem. LogSnag is a powerful, real-time event tracking tool that works seamlessly with OCaml. With LogSnag, you can set up event tracking for anything you want and monitor things like your CPU usage in real-time. In addition, you can set up a rule to notify you and your team when the CPU usage goes above a certain threshold. This way, you will always be aware of the performance of your application, and you can take immediate action if needed.

OCaml code snippets

To track your CPU usage, you can use the following code snippet Please don't forget to replace the YOUR_API_TOKEN with your API token and update the project and channel names.

Using OCaml with Cohttp
open Lwt
open Cohttp
open Cohttp_lwt_unix

let postData = ref "{\"project\":\"my-saas\",\"channel\":\"status\",\"event\":\"High CPU Usage\",\"description\":\"CPI usage has been over 90% for the last 5 minutes\",\"icon\":\"🚨\",\"notify\":true}";;

let reqBody = 
  let uri = Uri.of_string "https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log" in
  let headers = Header.init ()
    |> fun h -> Header.add h "Content-Type" "application/json"
    |> fun h -> Header.add h "Authorization" "Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN"
  in
  let body = Cohttp_lwt.Body.of_string !postData in

  Client.call ~headers ~body `POST uri >>= fun (_resp, body) ->
  body |> Cohttp_lwt.Body.to_string >|= fun body -> body

let () =
  let respBody = Lwt_main.run reqBody in
  print_endline (respBody)
