Enable and Disable the Xsan Debug Log

You can gather information manually about an Xsan volume using the cvgather command. This occurs per filesystem. For example, to run on a volume named krypted, use the following command: cvgather -f krypted -o /temp/krypted.debug You can also enable the debug log to get much more detailed information about each transaction to/from the volume and metadata controllers. To enable the debug log, use the cvdb command. The -g option will show the state of the debugger. The -e option will enable debugging and -d disables. So, to see the status of the debugger: cvdb -g To enable debugging: cvdb -e To disable debugging: cvdb -d To drop files into syslog: cvdb -s syslog=debug
