Using Application Accelerator for VMware Tanzu

Access the Application Accelerator UI server

  1. List the resources deployed in the accelerator-system namespace:

    kubectl get -n accelerator-system service,deploy,pod
    

    The output will be similar to the following example:

    NAME                                                     TYPE         CLUSTER-IP      EXTERNAL-IP     PORT(S)    AGE
    service/acc-engine                                       ClusterIP    10.96.251.254   <none>          80/TCP     4h47m
    service/acc-ui-server                                    LoadBalancer 10.96.74.16     35.192.88.120   80/TCP     6h15m
    service/accelerator-controller-manager-metrics-service   ClusterIP    10.96.8.89      <none>          8443/TCP   9h
    
    NAME                                             READY   UP-TO-DATE   AVAILABLE   AGE
    deployment.apps/acc-engine                       1/1     1            1           4h47m
    deployment.apps/acc-ui-server                    1/1     1            1           6h15m
    deployment.apps/accelerator-controller-manager   1/1     1            1           9h
    
    NAME                                                  READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
    pod/acc-engine-5bfd5954cc-5fglb                       1/1     Running   0          4h11m
    pod/acc-ui-server-659cd87f7c-9jfx5                    1/1     Running   0          3h54m
    pod/accelerator-controller-manager-5b57dcdcf7-2x9rr   1/1     Running   0          9h
    
  2. You can access the App Accelerator UI server using the listed EXTERNAL-IP address for the service acc-ui-server

  3. If your cluster doesn't support LoadBalancer and you installed using NodePort, then you can use port-forwarding with kubectl.

    To port-forward the UI server, run the following command in a separate terminal:

    kubectl -n accelerator-system port-forward svc/acc-ui-server 8877:80
    

    Access the server at http://localhost:8877/dashboard/.
