Hi Michael ,

I am getting this error .


Neo4jError: WebSocket connection failure. Due to security constraints in your web browser, the reason for the failure is not available to this Neo4j Driver. Please use your browsers development console to determine the root cause of the failure. Common reasons include the database being unavailable, using the wrong connection URL or temporary network problems. If you have enabled encryption, ensure your browser is configured to trust the certificate Neo4j is configured to use. WebSocket readyState is: 3

Please paste exactly the URL you're entering into the connection box. You should probably just be using a regular hostname. Ensure that http and https doesn't occur, nor a port, in the "host" field you're putting into halin.

The error you are seeing means that the browser is failing rather than halin - you should be connecting to port 7687 with halin, and not 7474, this may be the issue.

I'm sorry I really don't understand the question. What do you want to check?

(Anubhuti Lucky) #16

Currently I can see the graph of 5 -10 min .
I want to see the graph of last 7 day Or last one month .

(M. David Allen) #17

This is not possible at the moment. Halin polls the data from neo4j as it goes, and so I imposed a smaller time window to prevent blowing up your browser by not accumulating so much data into it.

if you want something like 7 days or a month, you should use an external monitoring solution such as datadog, stackdriver, grafana, or a similar product. Rather than getting metrics into your browser, they should be pushed to a third-party service where the metrics are stored in a specialized timeseries database, and then you can set up alerts and so on.

Halin is not intended for this purpose
