Overall Status

To better understand your connectivity to the environment and the active debug sessions, you could leverage the veloctl status command:
veloctl status
veloctl version v0.2.0
Cluster connectivity (context: velocity-VELOACME): [OK]
Active Development Sessions
Environment Name Service name Command Process ID
sunday-shine website yarn start 40146
Active Tunnels
Local Address Remote Address backend:3002
Cluster connectivity will verify your local machine can reach Velocity's cluster and your environment, to eliminate any issue that can arise from bad connectivity.
The Active Development Sessions is a list of the veloctl env develop sessions currently running on your machine. It helps you keep tabs on the services you are running locally.
Active Tunnels is a list of connections that veloctl created from your local machine to the cluster in order for your services to reach their dependencies.
