One of Carbonio’s Core Components, Carbonio Mesh, was inspired by HashiCorp’s Consul. This article aims to give some of the most popular CLI commands for inspecting and resolving Consul-related problems.
You can communicate with Consul on any node of a cluster, but keep in mind that Consul always works on the node that is currently selected. You must specifically identify the node you wish to operate on, for example, using the command list all services now executing on node with #ID 7ea9631e.
Obtain the token
To connect to and interact with Consul, you must first get the bootstrap-token whenever you wish to utilise the service.
The token, which is a string resembling e5a4966f-a83e-689d-618d-08a0fe7e695b, should be exported.
Use the shorthand below to automate the export procedure.
Typical Cluster Operations
The cluster inspection commands are as follows:
Operations for Common Services
These commands enable retrieval and manipulation of a list of services registered to a Consul cluster.
