Note:
Cockroach Labs supports the current stable release and two releases prior. Therefore, this version will no longer be supported after the Fall 2019 release.

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.

  3. If the problem doesn't match a common error, try the following pages:

  4. If you cannot resolve the issue easily yourself, the following tools can help you get unstuck:

    • Support Resources identifies ways you can get help with troubleshooting.
    • File an Issue provides details about filing issues that you're unable to resolve.
