From the Shell with the Tideways CLI

With the tideways CLI tool, you can trigger traces directly from the shell by wrapping any cURL, httpie or php commands.

See installing the Tideways command line tool, before you read the following examples.


You can generate traces for REST-APIs by sending an additional header. the command line client does this automatically, passing the necessary HTTP Headers to either curl, wget or http (httpie) programs:

tideways run acme/myapp42 curl http://myapp42/api/call

Commandline PHP Scripts

To generate a trace for a command-line PHP script using the command line client will automatically pass the necessary environment variables to the PHP script to trigger the profiling.

tideways run acme/myapp42 php app/console slow:command
