[mod_python] Profiling mod_python with callables?

Presuming you are actually using mod_python.publisher as the URL
dispatcher, then  instead of using:

  PythonHandler mod_python.publisher


  PythonHandler mymodule

In your 'mymodule.py' then add:

  from mod_python import publisher

  def handler(req):
    return publisher.handler(req)

Once you have that working, then you can wrap the call to
publisher.handler() with what ever you want, including profiling

Yes, this will also profile publisher's URL dispatch, but it is the
easiest place to insert it without having to do a bit of magic.
