The traceserver and tools for talking to traceservers.


The traceserver is a simple gRPC server that serves up the traceservice endpoint. In production we run the following services at these ports:


These ports are not available externally from GCE so to access them from your desktop there is a helper script, which will set up SSH port forwarding from localhost:9090 to skia-tracedb:9090.

Note that tracetool defaults to trying to talk to the endpoint on localhost:9090, so you shouldn't need to pass the --address argument to tracetool when using the port forwaring scripts.
