I am not sure that there is a way to connect to a “console” when you’re running your app via PM2. In general you should get your app working from a standard console and once you are ready to launch, use PM2, screen or a method to daemonize your script and use log files to debug any issues.

Thanks @ryanpq, yea there is no way to access my app console when I run through pm2.

I hope you know pm 2 also not supports multi core for a app it just create multiple instances of the app in cluster mode
