An HTTP API called Node API is available within each GEL binary, and each binary runs either as a microservice (such as an ingester) or in single-process mode where
target=all. The Node API fetches basic information about that microservice or single process.
Get debug information
This endpoint exports debug information from the GEL target. The response is a ZIP file with the following structure:
debug ├── config.default.yaml ├── config.actual.yaml ├── process-mappings.txt ├── version.json
The files contain:
config.default.yamlThe default configuration file for the requested service.
config.actual.yamlThe actual runtime configuration file for the requested service.
process-mappings.txtShows how memory is being used by the process from the operating system’s perspective.
version.jsonThe version information about the requested service.
