Application Response Measurement (ARM) Version 4.0

Project Description

Python language bindings for the Application Response Measurement (ARM) Version 4.0 standard.

This module provides a Python language implementation of the ARM 4.0 standard. At it’s simplest, it’s a straight exposure of the C language bindings with enough concessions to make it fit the Python language.


import arm4

# Register app_id = arm4.register_application (“Python test”) tran_id = arm4.register_transaction (app_id, “Python hello world”)

# Start our application and transaction measurements app_handle = arm4.start_application (app_id, “Example”) tran_handle = arm4.start_transaction (app_handle, tran_id)

# Do our work print ‘Hello, world!’

# Stop our measurements arm4.stop_transaction (tran_handle) # Default status is arm4.ARM_STATUS_GOOD arm4.stop_application (app_handle)

# Finish up arm4.destroy_application (app_id)

This is a simple example that doesn’t make use of ARM’s advanced correlators or metrics. More examples can be found at

This module is based on the ARM Issue 4.0, Version 2 - C Binding standard. More information can be found at
