ndb_error_reporter creates an archive from data node and management node log files that can be used to help diagnose bugs or other problems with a cluster. It is highly recommended that you make use of this utility when filing reports of bugs in MySQL Cluster.
This utility is intended for use on a management node host,
and requires the path to the management host configuration
config.ini). Optionally, you can
supply the name of a user that is able to access the cluster's
data nodes via SSH, in order to copy the data node log files.
ndb_error_reporter then includes all of these files in archive
that is created in the same directory in which it is run. The
archive is named
YYYYMMDDHHMMSS is a datetime
--fs is used, then the data node file
systems are also copied to the management host and included in
the archive that is produced by this script. As data node file
systems can be extremely large even after being compressed, we
ask that you please do not send archives
created using this option to Sun Microsystems, Inc. unless you
are specifically requested to do so.
