Access the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Logs

Tanzu Kubernetes Grid retains logs for management cluster and Tanzu Kubernetes cluster deployment and operation.

Access Management Cluster Deployment Logs

To monitor and troubleshoot management cluster deployments, review:

  • The log file listed in the terminal output Logs of the command execution can also be found at…

  • The log from your cloud provider module for Cluster API. Retrieve the most recent one as follows:

    1. Search your tanzu management-cluster create output for Bootstrapper created. Kubeconfig: and copy the kubeconfig file path listed. The file is in ~/.kube-tkg/tmp/.
    2. Run the following, based on your cloud provider:
      • vSphere: kubectl logs deployment.apps/capv-controller-manager -n capv-system manager --kubeconfig </path/to/kubeconfig>
      • Amazon EC2: kubectl logs deployment.apps/capa-controller-manager -n capa-system manager --kubeconfig </path/to/kubeconfig>
      • Azure: kubectl logs deployment.apps/capz-controller-manager -n capz-system manager --kubeconfig </path/to/kubeconfig>

Monitor Tanzu Kubernetes Cluster Deployments in Cluster API Logs

After running tanzu cluster create, you can monitor the deployment process in the Cluster API logs on the management cluster.

To access these logs, follow the steps below:

  1. Set kubeconfig to your management cluster. For example:

    kubectl config use-context my-management-cluster-admin@my-management-cluster
  2. Run the following:

    • capi logs:

      kubectl logs deployments/capi-controller-manager -n capi-system manager
    • IaaS-specific logs:

      • vSphere: kubectl logs deployments/capv-controller-manager -n capv-system manager
      • Amazon EC2: kubectl logs deployments/capa-controller-manager -n capa-system manager
      • Azure: kubectl logs deployments/capz-controller-manager -n capz-system manager
