Simulate A Crash

We can simulate errors with Vector using the console!

  1. Open up the firewall to provide access to the vic-engine webserver if you haven't already. To do this quickly ssh -L 8888:localhost:8888 root@
  2. Refer to the page for a list of available functions. In this case we'll use IntentionalAbort to simulate a software crash and verify that Vector will do a soft reboot.

    You issue the command in directly from your web browser but most professional developers would use a CLI tool like curl or wget. On your computer, and NOT the Vector ssh session:

    curl "http://localhost:8888/consolefunccall?func=IntentionalAbort"
