In App Platform, does each service instance have a number, and is it possible for the application within that instance to read that number?
For instance, if there were 3
shard instances, they would be named
shard-2, and an application could read that name through an environment variable.
In the Insights panel, for the CPU and memory graphs, there is a legend of the format
service-1, and so forth, which would seem to suggest that there is an instance number available in some part of App Platform. However, having read through the known environment variables, none of them are described as exposing the instance number.
Any help would be much appreciated.
