Gathering Information for Greenplum Support

posted May 2, 2013, 7:54 AM by Sachchida Ojha
The gpdetective utility collects information from a running Greenplum Database system and creates a bzip2-compressed tar output file. You can then send the output file to Greenplum Customer Support to aid the diagnosis of Greenplum Database errors or system failures. Run gpdetective on your master host, for example:

$ gpdetective -f /var/data/my043008gp.tar
