AppSignal for Ruby: Demo tool

AppSignal for RubyThis feature requires version 2.0.0 or higher.

The AppSignal gem includes a command-line tool that sends demonstration samples to AppSignal. When the tool is run, it sends an error and performance sample from your machine to AppSignal.

This command-line tool is useful for testing AppSignal on a system and validating your local configuration. The same test is also run during installation when using the appsignal install command.

To learn more about how to use the demonstration command, visit the Debugging page.


To run the demonstration tool, run the following terminal command from your project's root folder:

appsignal demo

If you want to make sure the config for a specific environment is used, you can use the optional --environment:

appsignal demo --environment=production

Available Options

environment--environment=<environment_name>Set the environment to use in the command, e.g. production or staging.
