Open an administrative command prompt in the utility's installation folder.
Run the VDS.Diagnostic.Utility.exe and provide the required arguments specifying the services to check: VDS.Diagnostic.Utility.exe [parameter]
For example, to run the utility on the 3D Graphic Data Service, enter the following in the command line:
If running the VDS Diagnostic Utility for any of the Web APIs and the Edge Gateway Service is not on the local system, the location of the Edge Gateway Service can be specified with the -gateway parameter:
VDS.Diagnostic.Utility.exe -3dweb -gateway HostMachine:44219
If running the utility for any of the Web APIs and you require testing the retrieval of an authorization token, the client ID and client secret can be specified with the -client and -secret parameters:
VDS.Diagnostic.Utility.exe -3dweb -client "GDSClient" -secret "thisistheclientsecret"
To run the utility for multiple services, but not all of them, multiple parameters can be specified on the command line. For example, to run the utility on the 2D Graphic Data Service and the 3D Graphic Data Service, run the following command:
VDS.Diagnostic.Utility.exe -2dgds -3dgds
To run the utility for more detailed information on the 3D Graphic Data Service, use the -deep parameter. This retrieves statistical information such as how many graphics and materials are in the caches, and how many queries have been posted.
VDS.Diagnostic.Utility.exe -3dgds -deep
