Attach Probe⚓︎

The Source++ Probe is the primary tool for how the Source++ Platform collects and stores relevant data for you.

Download⚓︎

You can use the platform to generate a probe which contains embedded connection information (including security credentials). Alternatively, you can download the official probe from GitHub Releases and manually configure the necessary connection settings. See Probe Configuration for the required configuration. It is recommended that you use the probe generated by the platform.

The following command will download the latest probe version:

1
curl -O -J https://<platform-host>/download/jvm-probe.jar?access_token=<access-token>
Example: Download the latest version
1
curl -O -J https://localhost/download/jvm-probe.jar?access_token=change-me

To download a specific version, use the following command:

1
curl -O -J https://<platform-host>/download/jvm-probe.jar?access_token=<access-token>&version=<version>
Example: Download version 0.7.4
1
curl -O -J https://localhost/download/jvm-probe.jar?access_token=change-me&version=0.7.4

To set the service name, use the following command:

1
curl -O -J https://<platform-host>/download/jvm-probe.jar?access_token=<access-token>&service_name=<service-name>
Example: Download probe with service name "my-cool-app"
1
curl -O -J https://localhost/download/jvm-probe.jar?access_token=change-me&service_name=my-cool-app

Usage⚓︎

Prerequisites for installing the probe vary depending on the application server you're using.

For the typical usage, simply add the -javaagent option:

1
-javaagent:/<path-to-probe>/spp-probe-0.7.4.jar
