Use the below guidelines to attach relevant details to the ticket. Skip sections 2-6 if not applicable.

1. Database Information

Open Settings > Server Properties page.

Click Export Configuration.

The configuration-export.json file contains key database and operating system information, including:

  • Operating system name and version.
  • Database build and version details.
  • JVM parameters.
  • Java environment variables.
  • Current database metrics.
  • Database properties.

Review the sample configuration file.

2. Database Log Files

The files in the /opt/atsd/atsd/logs/ directory can be downloaded from the Settings > Diagnostics > Server Logs page.

  1. Error log /opt/atsd/atsd/logs/err.log.

  2. Archive (.tar.gz) of *.log and *.zip files in the /opt/atsd/atsd/logs directory.

    tar czfv atsd_support.tar.gz \
      /opt/atsd/atsd/logs/*.log \
      /opt/atsd/atsd/logs/*.zip \

3. Extended Log Files

  1. Archive (.tar.gz) of the local /opt/atsd/hbase/logs/ directory or from the HBase HRegion Servers.

  2. Archive (.tar.gz) of the local /opt/atsd/hadoop/logs/ directory or from the HDFS Data Nodes.

  3. Archive (.tar.gz) of the most recent java_pid<pid>.hprof heap dump file in the /opt/atsd/atsd/logs directory, if such file is present.

4. Performance Statistics
