Monitoring: Request Tracking
It is possible to record and replay requests that are being received by RavenDB.
Monitoring is possible using the Raven.Traffic Tool, which can be found in [installDirectory]\Diag\Raven.Traffic
To record traffic, use this command:
Raven.Traffic rec http://localhost:8080/ Northwind outputFile.json
The default recording behaviour is to record 1000 requests, for no longer then 60 seconds. In order to change this behavior, you can use the traceSeconds and\or traceRequests options.
Raven.Traffic rec out http://localhost:8080/ Northwind outputFile.json traceSeconds=10
Raven.Traffic rec out http://localhost:8080/ Northwind outputFile.json traceRequests=100
Raven.Traffic rec out http://localhost:8080/ Northwind outputFile.json traceSeconds=180 traceRequests=5000
Other possible customizations allows compressing output, setting API keys etc. you can see it in the options section.
In addition to recording traffic, it is possible to replay recorder traffic. In order to replay, use this command:
Raven.Traffic play http://localhost:8080/ Northwind outputFile.json
Unlike the recording, in replaying it is not possible to limit replay length or volume, instead, the whole file will be replayed. But it does allow you to set connection settings compressing output, setting API keys etc. you can see it in the options section.
