Command appdash runs the Appdash web UI from the command-line.
For information about Appdash see:
A demo of Appdash in a small web application can be ran by simply running:
Which will produce some output:
Appdash collector listening on tcp:46346 Appdash web UI running at http://localhost:8700 Appdash demo app running at http://localhost:8699
Visiting the demo app URL mentioned above will then bring up the demo app which will make a few fake API calls, and then give you a direct link to view the trace for your request in Appdash's web UI.
Basic usage consists of running:
Which will start a Appdash collector server running on TCP port 7701 in plain-text (i.e. insecure). The Appdash collector server can then receive information from your application via a appdash.NewRemoteCollector, which it will then display in the web UI.
The web UI is also ran on HTTP port 7700, which you could visit in a browser:
Optionally, you do not need to use this command at all and can embed the web UI into your application directly on a separate HTTP port (see the traceapp package or examples/cmd/webapp for more details).
For testing purposes, the appdash command can send some fake data to a remote Appdash collector server by running:
appdash send -c="localhost:7701"
