@MatteoDefanti_twitter @laimis sorry for the delay in replying on this
the approach I use is mostly debugging just the receives
although step-through debugging breaks down pretty quickly in async code anyways, and pretty close to impossible when you start doing multi-process debugging
so in the past I've gotten away with just using unit tests and our multi-node testkit for the latter
new approach I'm working on though is using a distributed tracing engine like Zipkin to visualize the histogram of all of the different actors touching the messages that are being processed from a common flow
