get graph


Visualize or download the service graph from the Akita cloud.

This feature is available only for traces which were captured with the AKITA_DEPLOYMENT environment variable set, in a multi-service deployment.


$ akita get graph --service my-service --deployment prod

Return a textual representation of the API service graph. This shows which services have communicated with other services in your environment.


--service string

Specify the name of the service.

--deployment string

Specify the name of the deployment to view. (get timeline only.)

--start timestamp, --end timestamp

Specify the range of times to include in the graph. Timestamps must be given in RFC3339 format, like 2019-12-25T07:08:09Z.


Hide unknown vertices from the service graph. These vertices are those for which no service name could be discovered.

--output string

Specify an output format. The supported formats are:

  • source (default): group the edges by source, so that you can see all the services used by one client. This is a textual representation with source on the left and target on the right.
  • target: group the edges by target, so that you can see all the clients of one service. This is the same textual representation as source.
  • dot: output a Dot representation of the service graph. This can be visualized with Graphviz or other tools. The edges in the graph are labeled with the number of API calls observed.

--vertices string

Determine what the target vertices of the graph represent. The supported values are:

  • services (default): each node in the graph is a single service
  • endpoints: the source vertex of each edge is a service, but the target vertex is a single API endpoint
