Include collectd files

The collectd collector can be used to run a DaemonSet in the cluster with the parameters provided. The collector will delete and clean up this DaemonSet and any artifacts after it completes.


In addition to the shared collector properties, the collectd collector accepts the following parameters:

namespace (Optional)

The namespace where the DaemonSet will be created. If not specified, it will assume the "current" namespace that the kubectl context is set to.

image (Required)

The image to use for the pods controlled by this DaemonSet. This image should be accessible to the nodes in the cluster. The commands sleep and tar must be available in the image.

hostPath (Required)

Location of the files on the host systems.

timeout (Optional)

A duration that will be honored when collecting files. Timer starts after all pods in the DaemonSet become ready. If not specified, no timeout will be used.

imagePullPolicy (Optional)

A valid, string representation of the policy to use when pulling the image. If not specified, this will be set to IfNotPresent.

imagePullSecret (Optional)

Troubleshoot offers two possibilities to use ImagePullSecrets, either using the name of a pre-existing secret in the cluster or dynamically creating a temporary secret to extract the image and destroy it after the collector is done.

The ImagePullSecret field accepts the following parameters:

  • If a pre-existing ImagePullSecret is used:

    • name (required):

      The name of the pre-existing secret.

          name: my-image-pull-secret
  • If an ImagePullSecret will be created for the collector to pull the image:

    • name (optional)
    • data
      • .dockerconfigjson (required)

        A string containing a valid base64-encoded docker config.json file.

    • type (required)

      A string indicating that the secret is of type "kubernetes.io/dockerconfigjson".

          name: mysecret
            .dockerconfigjson: ewoJICJhdXRocyI6IHsKCQksHR0cHM6Ly9pbmRleC5kb2NrZXIuaW8vdjEvIjoge30KCX0sCgkiSHR0cEhlYWRlcnMiOiB7CgkJIlVzZXItQWdlbnQiOiAiRG9ja2VyLUNsaWVudC8xOS4wMy4xMiAoZGFyd2luKSIKCX0sCgkiY3JlZHNTdG9yZSI6ICJkZXNrdG9wIiwKCSJleHBlcmltZW50YWwiOiAiZGlzYWJsZWQiLAoJInN0YWNrT3JjaGVzdHJhdG9yIjogInN3YXJtIgp9
