If you run into issues with CockroachDB, there are a few initial steps you can always take:

  1. Check your logs for errors related to your issue.

    • Logs are generated on a per-node basis, so you must either identify the node where the issue occurred or collect the logs from all active nodes in your cluster.
    • Alternately, you can stop and restart problematic nodes with the --logtostderr flag to print logs to your terminal through stderr, letting you see all cluster activities as it occurs.
  2. Check our list of common errors for a solution.
