Wavefront Spy to Investigate Metrics per Proxy

This article will help walk you through investigating which metrics are passing through a particular proxy using Wavefront Spy.

 

In your web browser, input your Wavefront URL and add /api/spy/points at the end.

      Ex. https://t<your_cluster>.wavefront.com/api/spy/points

This will give you everything that is coming through your environment.

 

To check a specific proxy, use the same url but add ?proxy:<proxy_name_>

      Ex. https://<your_cluster>.wavefront.com/api/spy/points?proxy:skybridge

 

From here you can check to see which metrics are coming through your proxy. 

NOTE: This page will continuously run until you stop it.

If you would like to see how much usage that specific metric is using on the proxy, add &usage at the end.
