Useful Troubleshooting Commands

The following Kubernetes commands can help you gather information about the resources used by the MapR Data Fabric for Kubernetes:

  • kubectl describe <resourcetype> <resource> -n <namespace>
  • kubectl get <resourcetype> <resource> -n <namespace> -o yaml
  • kubectl logs <pod-name> -n <namespace>
  • journalctl -u kubelet -r (on the relevant node)

kubectl describe command

In this example, the kubectl describe command displays information about the mapr-kdfprovisioner-5dff68656-ln6vh Pod. Note that the kubectl describe output includes an event section.

kubectl describe pod mapr-kdfprovisioner-5dff68656-ln6vh -n mapr-system

kubectl get command

In this example, the kubectl get returns the .yaml parameters for the test-secure-provisioner86 Pod:

kubectl get pods test-secure-provisioner86 -n mapr-examples -o yaml
apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  creationTimestamp: 2018-02-09T00:42:06Z
  name: test-secure-provisioner86
  namespace: mapr-examples
  resourceVersion: "721689"
  selfLink: /api/v1/namespaces/mapr-examples/pods/test-secure-provisioner86
  uid: 0dd21274-0d32-11e8-bdd6-84a9c4fbf7cb
spec:
  containers:
  - args:
    - sleep
    - "1000000"
    image: busybox
    imagePullPolicy: Always
    name: busybox
    resources: {}
    terminationMessagePath: /dev/termination-log
    terminationMessagePolicy: file
    volumeMounts:
    - mountPath: /dynvolume
      name: maprfs-pvc
    - mountPath: /var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount
      name: default-token-zpv69
      readOnly: true
  dnsPolicy: ClusterFirst
  nodeName: qa108-165.qa.lab
  restartPolicy: Never
  schedulerName: default-scheduler

  serviceAccountName: default
  terminationGracePeriodSeconds: 30
  tolerations:

    operator: Exists
    tolerationSeconds: 300
  - effect: NoExecute

    operator: Exists
    tolerationSeconds: 300
  volumes:
  -name: maprfs-pvc

Running the kubectl get command without the -o yaml parameter generates less output:

kubectl get pods test-secure-provisioner86 -n mapr-examples
NAME                       READY    STATUS   RESTARTS   AGE
test-secure-provisioner86  1/1      Running  0          14m

kubectl logs command

In this example, the kubectl logs command returns logged output for the mapr-kdfprovisioner-5dff68656-ln6vh Pod:

kubectl logs mapr-kdfprovisioner-5dff68656-ln6vh -n mapr-system
I0209 12:58:39.956822    1 controller.go:407] Starting provisioner controller 013d58b3-0ddc-11e8-b0dd-0242acl10003!

journalctl -u command

In this example, the journalctl command returns events for the kubelet service for the node:

journalctl -u kubelet -r
