»Command: operator debug
operator debug command builds an archive containing Nomad cluster
configuration and state information, Nomad server and client node
logs, and pprof profiles from the selected servers and client nodes.
If no selection option is specified, the debug archive contains only cluster meta information.
nomad operator debug [options]
This command accepts comma separated
node-id IDs for
monitoring and pprof profiling. If IDs are provided, the command will
monitor logs for the
duration, saving a snapshot of Nomad state
interval. Captured logs and configurations are subjected to
redaction, but may still contain sensitive information and the archive
contents should be reviewed before sharing.
output path is provided,
debug will create a timestamped
directory in that path instead of an archive. By default, the command
creates a compressed tar archive in the current directory.
Consul and Vault status and version information are included if configured.
If ACLs are enabled, this command will require a token with the 'node:read' capability to run. In order to collect information, the token will also require the 'agent:read' and 'operator:read' capabilities, as well as the 'list-jobs' capability for all namespaces. To collect pprof profiles the token will also require 'agent:write', or enable_debug configuration set to true.
-address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the
NOMAD_ADDRenvironment variable if set. Defaults to
-region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the
NOMAD_REGIONenvironment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.
-namespace=<namespace>: The target namespace for queries and actions bound to a namespace. Overrides the
NOMAD_NAMESPACEenvironment variable if set. If set to
'*', job and alloc subcommands query all namespaces authorized to user. Defaults to the "default" namespace.
-no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLORmay be set. This option takes precedence over
-force-color: Forces colored command output. This can be used in cases where the usual terminal detection fails. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_FORCE_COLORmay be set. This option has no effect if
-no-coloris also used.
-ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the
NOMAD_CACERTenvironment variable if set.
-ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. If both
-ca-certis used. Overrides the
NOMAD_CAPATHenvironment variable if set.
-client-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded client certificate for TLS authentication to the Nomad server. Must also specify
-client-key. Overrides the
NOMAD_CLIENT_CERTenvironment variable if set.
-client-key=<path>: Path to an unencrypted PEM encoded private key matching the client certificate from
-client-cert. Overrides the
NOMAD_CLIENT_KEYenvironment variable if set.
-tls-server-name=<value>: The server name to use as the SNI host when connecting via TLS. Overrides the
NOMAD_TLS_SERVER_NAMEenvironment variable if set.
-tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if
-token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the
NOMAD_TOKENenvironment variable if set.
-duration=2m: Set the duration of the debug capture. Logs will be captured from specified servers and nodes at
log-level. Defaults to
-interval=30s: The interval between snapshots of the Nomad state. If unspecified, only one snapshot is captured. Defaults to
-log-level=DEBUG: The log level to monitor. Defaults to
-max-nodes=<count>: Cap the maximum number of client nodes included in the capture. Defaults to 10, set to 0 for unlimited.
-node-class=<node-class>: Filter client nodes based on node class.
-node-id=<node1>,<node2>: Comma separated list of Nomad client node ids to monitor for logs, API outputs, and pprof profiles. Accepts id prefixes, and "all" to select all nodes (up to count = max-nodes). Defaults to
-pprof-duration=<duration>: Duration for pprof collection. Defaults to 1s or
-duration, whichever is less.
-pprof-interval=<pprof-interval>: The interval between pprof collections. Set interval equal to duration to capture a single snapshot. Defaults to 250ms or
-pprof-duration, whichever is less.
-server-id=<server1>,<server2>: Comma separated list of Nomad server names to monitor for logs, API outputs, and pprof profiles. Accepts server names, "leader", or "all". Defaults to
-stale=<true|false>: If "false", the default, get membership data from the cluster leader. If the cluster is in an outage unable to establish leadership, it may be necessary to get the configuration from a non-leader server.
-event-topic=<allocation,evaluation,job,node,*>:<filter>: Enable event stream capture. Filter by comma delimited list of topic filters or "all". Defaults to "none" (disabled). Refer to the Events API for additional detail.
-verbose: Enable verbose output
-output=path: Path to the parent directory of the output directory. Defaults to the current directory. If specified, no archive is built.
-consul-http-addr=<addr>: The address and port of the Consul HTTP agent. Overrides the
-consul-token=<token>: Token used to query Consul. Overrides the
CONSUL_HTTP_TOKENenvironment variable and the Consul token file.
-consul-token-file=<path>: Path to the Consul token file. Overrides the
-consul-client-cert=<path>: Path to the Consul client cert file. Overrides the
-consul-client-key=<path>: Path to the Consul client key file. Overrides the
-consul-ca-cert=<path>: Path to a CA file to use with Consul. Overrides the
CONSUL_CACERTenvironment variable and the Consul CA path.
-consul-ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Consul certificate. Overrides the
-vault-address=<addr>: The address and port of the Vault HTTP agent. Overrides the
-vault-token=<token>: Token used to query Vault. Overrides the
-vault-client-cert=<path>: Path to the Vault client cert file. Overrides the
-vault-client-key=<path>: Path to the Vault client key file. Overrides the
-vault-ca-cert=<path>: Path to a CA file to use with Vault. Overrides the
VAULT_CACERTenvironment variable and the Vault CA path.
-vault-ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Vault certificate. Overrides the
This command prints a summary of the capture and the name of the timestamped archive file produced.
