Python flask agent - nfailed to submit message

(sebastian) #1

Hello all,

i installed the apm server and runing

after using a flask app only for testing the apm agent
i'm getting an error from the agent perspective

Connection to APM Server timed out (url: http://X.X.X.X:8200/v1/errors, timeout: None seconds)
Failed to submit message: ''
Connection to APM Server timed out (url: http://X.X.X.X:8200/v1/transactions, timeout: None seconds)
Failed to submit message: ''

in the app view, i'm not using a token in the apm

configure to use ELASTIC_APM in your application's settings from elasticapm.contrib.flask import ElasticAPM

app.config['ELASTIC_APM'] = {
# allowed app_name chars: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, -, _, and space from elasticapm.contrib.flask
'APP_NAME': 'yourApplicationName',
#'SECRET_TOKEN': 'yourToken', #if you set on the APM server configuration
'SERVER_URL': 'http://X.X.X.X:8200' # your APM server url

the status in the apm server of firewalld is stopped

so how can i debug this event to see the real cause that the apm server is not receiving the message from the agent?
please can you help me with this?

it was running the the loopback, u changed it to in the apm-server options to run it

but right now i have this error http400 - Problem Validation JSON Document
expected string, but got nul

do i have to change a setting in the .yaml of the server??

Hi @sebasd44

judging from the schema validation error, you need to set a service_name for your Flask app, either by setting an ELASTIC_APM_SERVICE_NAME environment variable, or by configuring the ElasticAPM object directly as shown in our Flask docs.

Thanks a lot mate, that was the missing part! you were extremely helpful!

(Benjamin Wohlwend @ APM) #5

Awesome! I will look into how we can make the experience a bit better when the service name isn't set (we should print a proper warning instead of the somewhat cryptic schema validation).

Let us know if you hit any other problems!
