    Junos Space Debug Utilities Overview

    Junos Space debug utilities allow you to debug issues related to Junos Space nodes and devices managed by Junos Space Network Management Platform and view details about jobs scheduled on Junos Space Network Management Platform. Junos Space debug utilities are a collection of scripts and Java applications stored at /var/log/space-debug/debug-utilities. These scripts and Java applications are organized under the following categories: deviceConnection, jobManagement, deviceImport, and HornetQ. You can save the output of the scripts at a custom location. By default, the output of the scripts is stored at the location where the scripts are stored.

    The following scripts and Java applications are available for debugging:

    Device-Connection Debug Scripts

    The device-connection debug scripts stored at /var/log/space-debug/debug-utilities/deviceConnection/ fetch and display device-connection information from DeviceDataMatrix. DeviceDataMatrix is a memory data structure in the Junos Space Network Management Platform database that stores device-connection information. You can also view this information through JConsole or JMXTerm.

    The following are the device-connection debug scripts:

    getDeviceInfo.sh

    getDeviceInfo.sh is a script to collect device-connection information for a single device. The script output displays the device ID (as stored in the Junos Space Platform database), IP address of the device, IP address of the Junos Space node to which the device is currently connected, status of the edit flag on the device, SSH control channel number, number of channels opened from the device, and details of the open channels.

    DeviceDebugInfoCollector.sh

    DeviceDebugInfoCollector.sh is a script to execute frequently used Junos OS debug commands on a device. When you execute this script, SSH connections are initiated to the device from the Junos Space node you specified. The script output displays the list of active management daemon (MGD) processes on the device, active SSH daemon (SSHD) processes on the device, active SSH connections to Junos Space Platform from the device, and all active SSH connections from the device. You can also view additional details about each of these processes and SSH connections.

    getAllDeviceInfo.sh

    getAllDeviceInfo.sh is a script to collect device-connection information about all devices that are connected to a Junos Space node. The script output displays the device ID (as stored in the Junos Space Platform database), IP address of the device, IP address of the Junos Space node to which the device is currently connected, status of the edit flag on the device, SSH control channel number, number of channels opened from the device, and details of the open channels about all devices that are connected to a Junos Space node. On a multinode setup, you can also collect this information for all Junos Space nodes.

    cleanupEditChannel.sh

    cleanupEditChannel.sh is a script to unlock the device configuration on the device. Junos Space Platform sets a lock when you deploy a configuration from Junos Space Platform or Junos Space applications. You use this script to unlock the device configuration if the previous deployments were erroneous and you are currently unable to deploy the configuration from Junos Space Platform. You enter the variable false to unlock the device configuration.

    For more information about executing device-connection debug scripts, see Executing Device-Connection Debug Scripts.

    Device Import Scripts and Java Applications

    The device import scripts and Java applications stored at /var/log/space-debug/debug-utilities/deviceImport/ clear the device import tables and fetch device inventory information or device configuration in XML format.

    The following are the device import scripts and Java applications:

    cleanupDeviceImportTables.sh

    cleanupDeviceImportTables.sh is a script to clean data from device import tables. You can execute the script to fix data errors during a device resynchronization process. You need to manually resynchronize the device with the Junos Space Platform database from the user interface after you execute the script.

    DB-blob-reader.jar

    DB-blob-reader.jar is a Java application to collect the device information XML or interface information XML. When you execute this application, the information from the XML is written to the DB-blob-reader-result.txt file. This information can be useful for debugging device resynchronization issues. You can modify the MySQL query in the DB-blob-reader.properties file and fetch information based on that MySQL query. You can specify the following in the DB-blob-reader.properties file: device ID (as stored in the Junos Space Platform database) and name of the RPC, device configuration, or interface.

    For more information about executing device import scripts and Java applications, see Executing Device Import Detail Script and Java Application.

    Job Management Scripts and Java Applications

    The job management scripts and Java applications stored at /var/log/space-debug/debug-utilities/jobManagement/ fetch information about jobs executed from the Junos Space nodes. You can also view the output of the scripts through JConsole or JMXTerm.

    The following are the job management scripts and Java applications:

    SystemLoadViewer.sh

    SystemLoadViewer.sh is a script to collect information about available memory on all Junos Space nodes and the jobs triggered on these nodes. The script output displays information such as the memory on the nodes, number of root jobs and subjobs on each of the nodes, type of job (root job or subjob), state of the job (running, queued, or stopped), name of the job, queue name of the job, the time the job was created, and the time the job was modified. The script output also displays the top five processes that consume CPU and memory when the script is executed.

    getJobThreadSump.sh

    getJobThreadSump.sh is a script to view the stack trace of a specific job. You can also view the script output through JConsole or JMXTerm.

    JobInfoCollector.jar

    JobInfoCollector.jar is a Java application to execute SQL queries and collect information about jobs. You can construct the SQL query in the JobInfoCollector.properties file. This file contains a default example query. The application can also display the hierarchy of a subjob (input as the parent job ID) and list of jobs that are currently unscheduled. You can also input a SQL query to obtain information about jobs.

    For more information about executing job management scripts and Java applications, see Executing Job Management Scripts and Java Applications.

    HornetQ Scripts

    The HornetQ scripts stored at /var/log/space-debug/debug-utilities/hornetQ/ display the list of all JBoss queues, of messages in a specific JBoss queue, or of jobs that are to be executed by a specific JBoss queue. You can also view the script output through JConsole or JMXTerm.

    The following are the HornetQ scripts:

    HornetQInfoProvider.sh

    HornetQInfoProvider.sh is a script to collect details about all HornetQ queues. The script output also lists details such as consumer-count, message-count, and scheduled-count.

    HQMessageViewer.sh

    HQMessageViewer.sh is a script to view the list of messages in a specific JBoss queue. The script output displays the job ID and job operation name. You can view the jobs that are queued to be executed by a specific JBoss queue.

    For more information about executing HornetQ scripts, see Executing HornetQ Scripts.
