SUBNET Registration Required
mc support commands are designed for MinIO deployments registered with MinIO SUBNET to ensure optimal outcome of diagnostics and performance testing.
Deployments not registered with SUBNET cannot use the
mc support commands.
mc support inspect command collects the data and metadata associated to objects at the specified path.
MinIO assembles this data from each backend drive storing an erasure shard for each specified object.
The command produces an encrypted zip file that includes all matching files with their respective host+drive+path.
Changed in version RELEASE.2023-01-11T03-14-16Z: The file uploads to MinIO for use by the engineering team in support efforts. The file saves the the current working directory in the event the file does not successfully upload (such as in an airgapped environment).
Changed in version RELEASE.2022-12-12T19-27-27Z: When writing the zip archive, MinIO also encrypts the zip index of file names included in the archive.
The resulting report is intended for use by MinIO Engineering via MinIO SUBNET and may contain internal or private data points associated to the object. Exercise caution before sending a report to a third party or posting the report in a public forum.
mc support inspect requires a MinIO deployment server from October 2021 or later.
The command supports wildcard
* pattern matching for prefixes or objects.
mc support inspect ALIAS/bucket/path/**/xl.meta
This command collects all
xl.meta associated to objects at
You can download the metadata for an object.
Metadata stores in an
xl.meta binary file.
The following command downloads the
mybucket/myobject on the
The file downloads from all drives as a zip archive file.
mc support inspect minio1/mybucket/myobject/xl.meta
The contents of the
xl.meta file are not human readable.
You can convert the contents of an
xl.meta file to JSON format.
The following command downloads all objects recursively found at a prefix.
This can be an expensive operation. Proceed with caution.
mc support inspect minio1/mybucket/myobject/**
The command has the following syntax:
mc [GLOBALFLAGS] support inspect \ [--legacy] \ TARGET
Use the older method of exporting inspection data, which does not encrypt data by default.
This command supports any of the global flags.
