Diagnosing Service Issues

If a service will not stay running and the logs indicate that it is crashing, additional debugging information can be obtained from core dumps.

By default, core dumps are disabled for services. These can be individually enabled as needed by the following command:

tnsr(config)# service (backend|bgp|dataplane|dhcp4|ike|ntp (dataplane|host)|ospf|ospf6|
                 restconf|rip|snmp (dataplane|host)|unbound) coredump (enable|disable)

After enabling or disabling coredumps, the target service must be restarted for the change to take effect.

The resulting core files will be written under /var/lib/systemd/coredump/.

Debugging TNSR

The following commands enable debugging information in various aspects of TNSR. These should only be used under direction of Netgate.

debug backend [level <n>]

Enable debugging in clixon_backend at the given level.

debug cli [level <n>]

Enable debugging in clixon and cligen at the given level.

debug restconf [level <n>]

Enable debugging in the RESTCONF daemon at the given level.

debug tnsr (clear|set|value) <flags>

Enable debugging in TNSR. The set or clear command may be repeated multiple times to add or remove individual flag values. The value command may be used to directly set the value. The <flags> value is the logical or of all desired debugging flags.

The following flag values are available:
