Nov 28, 2017 What Apps are Running on a Diego Cell
Ever wonder which applications are running on a particular Diego cell?
There is a nifty article on the Pivotal Knowledge Base which goes through how to find this info in
PCF 1.7. This points us to getting the list of application process guids for the cell by curling
rep. The user Muni Chada in the comments of the article points out how to use the certificates for
rep to make the https call.
Combining these two you can get the list of applications:
cd /var/vcap/jobs/rep/config/certs; \ curl -k -s https://localhost:1801/state --cert server.crt \ --key server.key | python -m json.tool |grep process_guid | \ cut -d ':' -f2|cut -c 3-38| \ xargs -I '<guid>' cf curl '/v2/apps/<guid>'| \ grep '"name"'|cut -d ':' -f2|sort -u
Which outputs something similar to:
"cf-env", "spring-music", "spring-music2", "spring-music3", "spring-music4", "spring-music5", "spring-music6", "spring-music243",
The command above has a few dependencies:
- You can
bosh sshonto the cell.
- The cell has the CF CLI installed. We colocate the toolbelt-boshrelease on every deployment so we already have the CF CLI available without manually installing it.
