Bad news. The server hosting The Ruby Toolbox went bust on the evening of June 7th. While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.

For the time being, here is a very stripped down version of the Ruby Toolbox's contents.

Update June 13th: I'd like to invite you to join the discussion on the future of the Toolbox on github. You can also get in touch directly on Twitter.

Request log analyzer's purpose is to find out how your web application is being used, how it performs and to focus your optimization efforts. This tool will parse all requests in the application's log file and aggregate the information. Once it is finished parsing the log file(s), it will show the requests that take op most server time using various metrics. It can also insert all parsed request information into a database so you can roll your own analysis. It supports Rails-, Merb- and Rack-based applications logs, Apache and Amazon S3 access logs and MySQL slow query logs out of the box, but file formats of other applications can easily be supported by supplying an easy to write log file format definition.
