Dump


You can generate a dump file that includes information about the runtime GigaSpaces environment for a specific host or across the entire environment.

Start the WEB-UI, under the Generate Dump tab select the relevant option:

This can be done for all hosts, all hosts but only information on GSCs, or just an overview. For a specific host, you can click the tool-box icon.

Specific GSC dump:

Any of the above will display the following dialog:

dump3

Select the desired options and click the Generate button.

  • The “JVM Heap Dump” option determines wether a JVM heap dump should be generated for the JVMs. It is recommended to choose this only on a specific host or GSC that a Java heap dump should be generated for.
  • The “Only Live Services Log Dump” determines if dump should include only services which are currently running, or also services which have been terminated (useful for trouble-shooting failover scenarios)

Generate Overview

The “Generate Overview” will provide general information on the system deployment. This information is useful to quickly gather the system settings in production, for example when reporting a support case.

When clicking on the Generate Overview option:

This will download a zip file containig an overview.txt file directly to the downloads folder. The dump overview structure will look like this:
