Invoking Spring Insight in your Browser

Follow these steps to invoke Spring Insight in your browser and to start seeing trace data.

  1. Start your favorite browser and browse to the Spring Insight dashboard using the following URL:

    http://localhost:8080/insight

    Note: In Spring Insight Developer, you can access the Spring Insight dashboard only from the localhost.

    The browser invokes the main Spring Insight dashboard on the Browse Resources screen:

  2. Initiate activity by using your Web application; the exact steps depend on what your application actually does.

    Spring Insight traces all application activity and displays it on the dashboard. For example, if you performed any JDBC queries, each one is shown in the Spring Insight dashboard along with a timeline of recent requests.
