I have a distillery release on a remote node, but when trying to run :observer.start() got the following error:
** (UndefinedFunctionError) function :observer.start/0 is undefined (module :observer is not available)
My release config:
environment :prod do
set include_erts: true
set include_src: false
set cookie: :"***********"
set vm_args: "rel/vm.args"
release :meskarest do
set version: current_version(:***)
set applications: [
:logger, :runtime_tools, :comeonin, :bcrypt_elixir, :httpotion, :timex
I’m not sure, what runtime_tools is or where it comes from, but the application that you want to start and include is :observer and its dependencies.
OK, was able to google, and runtime_tools doesn’t do anything about observer… I’m not sure though which version of elixir and otp were used in that blog post. Maybe things have changed since them, or he didn’t proofread his post correctly…
