Bonus: Telemetry

Last updated 6 months ago

Pronghorn provides awesome automatically generated graphs of your application that you can view in your web browser. It updates live, displaying data flow, volume, and more.

Enable Telemetry in HelloWorldPronghorn

To enable telemetry in our HelloWorld app, go to HelloWorldPronghorn.java and edit the start method to look like this:

private static void start(GraphManager gm) {
gm.enableTelemetry(8000);
StageScheduler.defaultScheduler(gm).startup();
}

Run the app, and observe the output on the console:

[main] INFO com.ociweb.pronghorn.stage.scheduling.StageScheduler - Targeted threads in use 8, fixed limit with fixed script. NOTE: More threads may be used use to graph complexity and telemetry usage.
[main] INFO com.ociweb.pronghorn.network.NetGraphBuilder - building server graph
