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.
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_idparameter. For example, use
http://<host>:<http-port>/?remote_node_id=2to select node
2. The node selected here is also set as the target node for the Profiling UI section.
The following debug reports are useful for monitoring and troubleshooting CockroachDB:
|Custom Time Series Chart||Create a custom chart of time series data.||All users.|
|Problem Ranges||View ranges in your cluster that are unavailable, under-replicated, slow, paused, or have other problems.||
|Data Distribution and Zone Configs||View the distribution of table data across nodes and verify zone configuration.||
|Statement Diagnostics History||Diagnostic bundles for all statements executed on the cluster.||
The following configuration settings are useful for monitoring and troubleshooting CockroachDB:
|Cluster Settings||View cluster settings and their configured values.||All users can view data according to their privileges.|
|Localities||Check node localities for your cluster.||
Even More Advanced Debugging
The Even More Advanced Debugging section of the page lists advanced troubleshooting tools and reports that are generally of interest to CockroachDB developers and contributors, such as the Key Visualizer, a tool for visualizing read and write traffic across your keyspace.
If you want to learn more about the tools in this section, contact us through these channels.
Raw Status Endpoints (JSON)
These endpoints are deprecated in favor of the Cluster API.
Depending on your access level, the endpoints listed here provide access to:
- Log files
- Node status
- Hot ranges
- Node-specific metrics
- Session data
- Cluster-wide range data
- Allocator runs
