Hey, we have setup gateway and pump currently and we want to go a step forward and setup a dashboard for them now.
with just plain default env variables configurations , now we want to start testing more seriously
but the documenation IMO is kind of confusing…
Anyway the question is in the title, but ill throw more question in here because we really are lost.
Does a tyk-pump product needs a config file?
what is up-time-pump thing?
if i have mongoDB and i want it to forward all of the data to the dashboard do i need to set it up both in the dashboard config file AND pump seperatly file?
where do i need to cinfigure the gateway API? both in the dashboard config file AND pump config file?
what does this configuration mean? →
if it’s worth mentioning the gateway and pump (currently-only) both are on the same server, and the dashbaord will be placed in another. (also the mongoDB itself is in a seperate server)
Yes you do. Pump is in charge of forwarding the analytics data to a more persistent storage. The dashboard is in charge of viewing the analytics from that persistent storage
In simple words, pump handles the write operation while the dashboard handles the read operation (of the analytics data). You need to setup the persistent storage config individually for the systems to know where to write and read
