There are several places in the Backyards interface where you can't see anything if your application hasn't received any traffic yet. For example, if there are no metrics in the system you won't see any visualization on the MENU > OVERVIEW page.

To send generated traffic to an endpoint, complete the following steps.

  1. On the Backyards web interface, select MENU > TOPOLOGY.
  2. Click HTTP in the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Complete the form with the endpoint details and click SEND to generate test traffic to your services. Generate test traffic
  4. In a few seconds a graph of your services appears.
