$start_time http variable

Description

There's a series of patches for nginx that have been circulating for some time that add a $start_time HTTP variable. The $start_time variable tends to be used for application metrics, such as New Relic.

This seems like a feature that would be useful to have built-in. This is the most up-to-date patch I know of.

The patch in question is certainly not something we are going to accept, e.g. as it uses time format which is not in line with format of various other time variables provided by nginx ($msec, $request_time, $upstream_response_time and so on; note though that some of them are log module only and while they certainly provide the same information, they might not be usable for the exact use case).

And in any case trac is really wrong way to submit patches for a review. Post your patches to nginx-devel@ for a review instead (or ask author to post them if you aren't the author).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
