If you run into issues with CockroachDB, there are a few initial steps you can always take:
- Check your logs for errors related to your issue.
- Logs are generated on a per-node basis, so you must either identify the node where the issue occurred or collect the logs from all active nodes in your cluster.
- Alternately, you can stop and restart problematic nodes with the
--logtostderrflag to print logs to your terminal through
stderr, letting you see all cluster activities as it occurs.
