Collecting a Support Bundle
Learn how to collect a support bundle
Now that we have the
kubectl plugin installed, let's collect a support bundle.
A support bundle needs to know what to collect and optionally, what to analyze. This is defined in a YAML file. Open your favorite editor and paste the following content in:
apiVersion: troubleshoot.sh/v1beta2 kind: SupportBundle metadata: name: supportbundle-tutorial spec: collectors:  analyzers: 
troubleshoot.sh/v1beta2was introduced in preflight and support-bundle krew plugin version 0.9.39 and Kots version 1.19.0. Kots vendors should read the guide to maintain backwards compatibility.
Save the file as
support-bundle.yaml and then execute it with:
kubectl support-bundle ./support-bundle.yaml
The support bundle plugin will work for a few seconds and then show you the filename that it created.
Note: This does not deploy anything to the cluster, it's all client-side code.
In my case, the file created was named
tar xzvf the file and open it in your editor to look at the contents.
