This procedure is part of a lab that teaches you how to monitor your application with New Relic. If you haven't already, check out the lab introduction.
Before you can walk through the lab proper, you need to spin up your Angular application.
Clone the lab repository.
$git clone https://github.com/newrelic-experimental/NewRelic-basics-lab-material.git
Navigate to the root directory of your application, install dependencies, and run the application.
$cd NewRelic-basics-lab-material/FoodMe$npm install$node ./server/start.jsGo to http://localhost:3000/
This opens your FoodMe application in your browser.
Enter your name and delivery address, and click Find Restaurants to get started.
Here, you see a list of restaurants where you can order food.
Choose a restaurant.
Select an item or two.
Enter the following fake card information.
Click Purchase to place the order:
Next, you use a simulator to generate more traffic to your application.
In another terminal window, navigate to the root directory of your application, and run the load generator.
$# Navigate to the root directiory of your application$cd NewRelic-basics-lab-material/FoodMe/simulator$# Create a virtual environment$python3 -m venv venv$# Activate the virtual environment$source venv/bin/activate$# Install the simulator's dependencies$pip install -r requirements.txt$# Run the simulator$python simulator.py====== WebDriver manager ======Current google-chrome version is 99.0.4844Get LATEST chromedriver version for 99.0.4844 google-chrome
This load generator assumes you have Google Chrome installed on your computer. If you're using a different browser, either skip this step and generate traffic manually, or install Google Chrome.
Now, that you know how to run your application, it's time to instrument it. In the terminal windows that are running your application and simulator, press
<CTRL-C> to shut them down. With your app shut down, you'll be able to update your code to introduce monitoring tools.
This procedure is part of a lab that teaches you how to monitor your application with New Relic. Now that you've set up your environment, instrument your application with APM agent.
