View connected services

When troubleshooting issues, you might want to know whether there's a problem with an individual service, if that service is affecting other services upstream, or if issues are associated with a downstream service. Use one of the following options to review trending requests, errors, and latencies for a selected service and its edges:

  • From a services page, use the dependency map to view the selected service and its upstream and downstream dependencies. Click View full map to open the topology view in Trace Explorer, scoped to the selected service.
  • In Trace Explorer, click Topology view to display a full dependency map. The topology view responds to changes in your search criteria. You can additionally group and narrow results on the map by selecting different parameters in the topology map, such as focusing on errors, highlighting services with high requests, and identifying spans in the critical path.
