gpmt gp_log_collector

This tool collects Greenplum and system log files, along with the relevant configuration parameters, and generates a file which can be provided to VMware Customer Support for diagnosis of errors or system failures.

Usage

gpmt gp_log_collector [-failed-segs | -c <ID1,ID2,...>| -hostfile <file> | -h <host1, host2,...>]
[ -start <YYYY-MM-DD> ] [ -end <YYYY-MM-DD> ]
[ -dir <path> ] [ -segdir <path> ] [ -a ] [-skip-master] [-with-gpbackup] [-with-gptext] [-with-gptext-only] [-with-pxf] [-with-pxf-only] [-with-gpupgrade]

Options

-failed-segs
The tool scans gp_configuration_history to identify when a segment fails over to their mirrors or simply fails without explanation. The relevant content ID logs will be collected.
-free-space
Free space threshold which will exit log collection if reached. Default value is 10%.
-c
Comma separated list of content IDs to collect logs from.
-hostfile
Hostfile with a list of hostnames to collect logs from.
-h
Comma separated list of hostnames to collect logs from.
-start
Start date for logs to collect (defaults to current date).
-end
End date for logs to collect (defaults to current date).
-dir
Working directory (defaults to current directory).
-segdir
Segment temporary directory (defaults to /tmp).
-a
Answer Yes to all prompts.
-skip-master
When running gp_log_collector, the generated tarball can be very large. Use this option to skip Greenplum Master log collection when only Greenplum Segment logs are required.
-with-gpbackup
Beginning with Greenplum 6.22, this option enables you to collect logs related to backup and restore.

With this option, gpmt collects these log files from $GPADMIN_HOME/gpAdminLogs:

  • gpbackup_.log
  • gpbackup_helper_.log
  • gpbackup_ plugin .log
  • gprestore_.log

These are collected from the provided --backup-dir or default backup directory:

  • gpbackup__config.yaml
  • gpbackup__metadata.sql
  • gpbackup__report
  • gpbackup__toc.yaml
  • gprestore___report
  • gpbackup___report

Also, the pg_log file is collected from the master and segment hosts.

-with-gptext
Collect all GPText logs along with Greenplum logs.
-with-gptext-only
Collect only GPText logs.
-with-pxf
Collect all PXF logs along with Greenplum logs.
-with-pxf-only
Collect only PXF logs.
-with-gpupgrade
Collect all gpupgrade logs along with Greenplum logs.

Note: Hostnames provided through -hostfile or -h must match the hostname column in gp_segment_configuration.

The tool also collects the following information:

Examples

Collect Greenplum master and segment logs listed in a hostfile from today:

gpmt gp_log_collector -hostfile ~/gpconfig/hostfile

Collect logs for any segments marked down from 21-03-2016 until today:

gpmt gp_log_collector -failed-segs -start 2016-03-21

Collect logs from host sdw2.gpdb.local between 2016-03-21 and 2016-03-23:

gpmt gp_log_collector -failed-segs -start 2016-03-21 -end 2016-03-21

Collect only GPText logs for all segments, without any Greenplum logs:

gpmt gp_log_collector -with-gptext-only
