Run a PxL script

Let’s use Pixie’s Live UI to run a built-in PxL script.

Run a PxL Script

  1. Open Pixie’s Live UI.
  2. Select your cluster using the cluster drop-down menu.


  1. Select the px/namespace script from the script drop-down menu.


  1. This script has one required argument (as denoted with an *). Enter px-sock-shop for the namespace argument.


After the script executes, you should see a view similar to the following:


This script (px/namespace) shows:

  • A service graph of HTTP1/2 traffic between the pods in the specified namespace.
  • A list of the services and pods with high-level resource and application metrics.

This script takes one other argument, start_time. This argument is specified as a relative time (e.g. -30s, -30m, -1hr) and provides the time window for the query.
