Advanced Debug Page

On this page Carat arrow pointing down

On a secure cluster, you must be an admin user to access this area of the DB Console. Refer to DB Console security.

The Advanced Debug page of the DB Console provides links to advanced monitoring and troubleshooting reports and cluster configuration details. To view this page, access the DB Console and click Advanced Debug in the left-hand navigation.


These pages are experimental and largely undocumented. If you find an issue, let us know through these channels.

Required privileges

To view the Advanced Debug page, and work with the debugging and profiling endpoints hosted on this page, the user must be a member of the admin role or must have the VIEWDEBUG system privilege defined.

License and node information

On the right-side of the page, the following information is displayed:

  • License type: Determines if you have access to Enterprise features.
  • Web server: Indicates the node currently serving your DB Console web session, and allows you to select a different node if desired. To cancel your selection of a different node, click Reset. You may also specify this directly in the URL with the remote_node_id parameter. For example, use http://<host>:<http-port>/?remote_node_id=2 to select node 2. The node selected here is also set as the target node for the Profiling UI section.
