A CLI dashboard interface for monitoring Vector instances.
vector top is a command for the Vector CLI that displays both metrics emitted by your Vector instance as well
as information about your Vector topology through a beautiful dashboard-style interface reminiscent of tools like
htop. To use it, run
vector top and specify the URL of the running Vector instance you want to monitor:
vector top --url https://my-vector-instance.prod.acmecorp.biz
That pulls up an interface that looks like this:
By default, the
vector top looks for a Vector instance running locally at http://localhost:8686, but you can also
monitor remote instances, as in the example above. The information displayed updates every second by default, but you
can adjust that using the
vector top interacts directly with Vector’s GraphQL API, which was built with
vector top as
a primary consumer. The dashboard UI was created using the excellent [tui-rs] library.
