But that won't still tell the completion of first round of all hosts or if
any hosts' data been feed more than once while another host data has not
arrived yet

I am guessing using clientlog to pull the data would be simpler. That will
give me definite answer of how long it took to collect data of each host (in
miliseconds) and how long it took to rotate through
all the hosts.

I wish I could get those info from this server side perl script, but I doubt
that is logically possible
given this scenario.
