How to Record Diagnostic Data of the Cluster Configuration

After you finish configuring the global cluster but before you put it into production, use the Oracle Explorer utility to record baseline information about the cluster. This data can be used if you need to troubleshoot the cluster in the future.

  1. Assume the root role.
  2. Install the Oracle Explorer software if it is not already installed.
    # pkg install support/explorer
  3. Run the explorer utility on each node in the cluster.

    Use the appropriate command for your platform. For example, to collect information on a Sun Fire T1000 server from Oracle, run the following command:

    # explorer -i -w default,Tx000

    For more information, see the explorer(8) man page in the /opt/SUNWexplo/man/man8/ directory and Oracle Explorer Data Collector User Guide which is available through Note 1153444.1 on My Oracle Support (https://support.oracle.com).

    The explorer output file is saved in the /opt/SUNWexplo/output/ directory as explorer.hostid.hostname-date.tar.gz.

  4. Save the files to a location that you can access if the entire cluster is down.
  5. Send all explorer files to the Oracle Explorer database for your geographic location.

    Follow the procedures in Oracle Explorer Data Collector User's Guide to use FTP or HTTPS to submit Oracle Explorer files.

    The Oracle Explorer database makes your explorer output available to Oracle technical support if the data is needed to help diagnose a technical problem with your cluster.
