Avo Inspector SDKs

2 minute read

Avo Inspector analyzes the analytics events sent from your app, without collecting the actual data (not yet another tool to add to your privacy policy). Based on that analysis Avo automatically builds a single source of truth tracking plan, covering all your products and platforms, giving you a complete overview of which is tracking what, and which is not.

The Avo Inspector SDK is designed to be small and easy to include in any project.

Batching

In order to ensure our SDK doesn't have a large impact on performance or battery life it supports event schemas batching. In production, default values are 30 schemas per batch and smaller batches are sent if more than 30 seconds pass between uploads. In development batching is disabled by default. You can change the values using AvoInspector.setBatchSize(newBatchSize: Int) and AvoInspector.setBatchFlushSeconds(newBatchFlushSeconds: Int) class methods to fine tune the library performance.

App versions

When initializing the Inspector SDK you'll be prompted to provide the current app version. Providing correct app version is not required, but doing so significantly improves the Inspector issue reporting. By providing app version the Inspector is able to tell in what version an issue was first seen, and in what version the issue was fixed. Versions also allow the Inspector to report more accurately on the implementation status of your events, by focusing on the implementation status in your latest app version for every source.

We recommend using semantic versioning (e.g. "1.0.0") or other types of numeric versioning (e.g. build number) which get incremented on every release.

Examples of great app versions, incremented with every feature release:

  • 4.11.2
  • 1.110.0
  • 1452
  • 42

Examples of bad app versions:

  • 0f5d04ddbb401971b2f9c7f6186f58161692c3d8
  • prod.commit.b401971

Easy setup with Segment SDK on Android and iOS

If you are using Segment Analytics for tracking integrating Avo Inspector SDK is even easier.

We provide a code snippet to be used as middleware component that you supply to Segment during initialization. That will allow Avo to analyze schemas of all event tracked by Segment.
