collect-support-data tool to aggregate data and send it to a
PingData servers provide information about their current state and any problems
encountered. If a problem occurs, run the
in the /bin directory. The tool aggregates all relevant support
files into a .zip file that can be sent to a support provider
for analysis. The tool also runs data collector utilities, such as
other diagnostic tools for the operating system.
The tool can only archive portions of certain log files to conserve space, so that the resulting support archive does not exceed the typical size limits associated with e-mail attachments.
The data collected by the
collect-support-data tool can vary between
systems. The data collected includes the configuration directory, summaries and
snippets from the logs directory, an LDIF of the monitor and RootDSE entries, and a
list of all files in the server root.
Perform the following steps to run this tool:
From the server root directory, run the
collect-support-datatool.Include the host, port number, bind DN, and bind password.
$ bin/collect-support-data \ --hostname 188.8.131.52 --port 389 \ --bindDN "cn=Directory Manager" --bindPassword secret \ --serverRoot /opt/PingData<server> \ --pid 1234
- Email the .zip file to a support provider.
