Arangoinspect Examples

If you are asked by ArangoDB support to provide an inspector output, run the arangoinspect binary to generate a file in the current working folder.

The resulting JSON file is a collection of meta data acquired from all involved instances. The data includes relevant operating system parameters, ArangoDB process parameters, local database information etc.

Please open the file locally and check if it contains anything that you are not allowed/willing to share and obfuscate it before sharing (user names, files paths etc.).

Invoking Arangoinspect

Point the tool to an ArangoDB endpoint. In case of a single server, there is only one. You can connect to any node in case of a cluster (DBServer, Coordinator, Agent).

arangoinspect --server.endpoint tcp://127.0.0.1:8529

This will start the tool with a prompt for the JWT secret and try to connect to the specified ArangoDB server. You have to type the secret as is used for the arangod option --server.jwt-secret. For non-cluster deployments, you may authenticate with a user name and password instead:

arangoinspect --server.ask-jwt-secret false --server.username "root" --server.password "foobar"

The password can be omitted and entered interactively.

Example outputs

If arangoinspect succeeds to authenticate, it starts to gather information and writes the result to arangodb-inspector.json, then exits:

arangoinspect --server.endpoint tcp://127.0.0.1:8629

Please specify the JWT secret:
