Examples

Run a single collector.

sdb-report collect-local --only procFs

Run pre-SingleStore install collectors only. Use for validating your environment before installing SingleStore.

sdb-report collect --validate-env

Exclude specific collectors.

sdb-report collect-local --exclude procFs --exclude securityLimits

Include excluded collectors.

sdb-report collect-local --include informationSchemaColumnarSegments

Runs all included collectors by default. The --all option has been deprecated.

sdb-report collect-local --all

Change amount of data collected from tracelogs to 15MB (default is 10MB).

sdb-report collect-local --opt memsqlTracelogs.tracelogSize=15mb
