Debugging measurements

Debugging containers or itself

The first step in debugging a measurement workflow is to
turn the --debug flag of the on.

When you call the locally it will turn into
a steppable mode where you continue to the next step by pressing enter.

You can then enter one of the containers to see if
the required services are running correctly.

An example call would be:

docker exec -it MY_CONTAINER_NAME bash

Some container do not have bash. However sh, which has less capabilities,
should be available in most cases.

Debugging containers via HTTP / exposed ports

If entering the container looks fine and you need to access them through some of their
exposed ports (ex. via Browser through HTTP) turn on the --allow-unsafe flag to bind
the ports specified in the usage_scenario.yml

Debugging metric providers

To see if the Metric Providers → are working correctly you have two options:

  • Start them manually from their respective folder under /metric-providers/... and look if the output is as expected
  • Turn on the --no-file-cleanup switch to see if the files generated in /tmp/green-metrics-tool/[...].log are in expected format
