Replicated Troubleshoot

Replicated Troubleshoot is a framework for collecting, redacting, and analyzing highly customizable diagnostic information about a Kubernetes cluster. Troubleshoot specs are created by 3rd-party application developers/maintainers and run by cluster operators in the initial and ongoing operation of those applications.

Troubleshoot provides two CLI tools as kubectl plugins (using Krew): kubectl preflight and kubectl support-bundle. Preflight provides pre-installation cluster conformance testing and validation (preflight checks) and support-bundle provides post-installation troubleshooting and diagnostics (support bundles).

Preflight Checks

Preflight checks are an easy-to-run set of conformance tests that can be written to verify that specific requirements in a cluster are met.

To run a sample preflight check from a sample application, install the preflight kubectl plugin:

curl | bash

and run:

kubectl preflight

For a details on creating the custom resource files that drive preflight checks, visit creating preflight checks.

Support Bundle

A support bundle is an archive that's created in-cluster, by collecting logs and cluster information, and executing specified commands (including redaction of sensitive information). After creating a support bundle, the cluster operator will normally deliver it to the 3rd-party application vendor for analysis and disconnected debugging. Another Replicated project, Kotsadm, provides cluster operators with an in-cluster UI for processing support bundles and viewing analyzers (as well as support bundle collection).

To collect a sample support bundle, install the troubleshoot kubectl plugin:

curl | bash

and run:

kubectl support-bundle

For details on creating the custom resource files that drive support-bundle collection, visit creating collectors and creating analyzers.


For questions about using Troubleshoot, there's a Replicated Community forum, and a #app-troubleshoot channel in Kubernetes Slack.
