Obtaining the UISP Server Support File

Back to Top

The support info of the UISP server can be obtained through the UISP Web UI:

GUI: Access the UISP Controller Web Portal.

1. Navigate to the  settings.png  Settings > Maintenance > Support Info section to download the support file.

2. Optionally increase the log verbosity and time range and click on the Download Support Info button.

On self-hosted UISP installations, you can also obtain the support information files by accessing the server Command Line Interface (CLI) using SSH. Follow the steps below to obtain the support file using the CLI instead:

CLI: Access the Command Line Interface of the server using SSH.

1. Access the root user shell:

sudo su

2. Navigate to the /home/unms/data/logs/ directory:

cd /home/unms/data/logs/

3. Display and sort the contents of the /home/unms/data/logs/ directory by the newest first.

ls -lt

4. There will be a total of 12 different relevant log files (.log) and log file archives (.log.gz):

unms.date.log.gz
unms.string.log
ucrm.date.log.gz
ucrm.string.log
nginx.date.log.gz
nginx.string.log
netflow.date.log.gz
netflow.string.log
redis.date.log.gz
redis.string.log
rabbitmq.date.log.gz
rabbitmq.string.log 

5. Create a compressed archive of those files and save it in the /tmp folder.

sudo tar -cvjSf /tmp/uisp-logs.tar.bz2 /home/unms/data/logs

6. Use your favorite SCP client program (for example WinSCP or the macOS/Linux Terminal) to connect to the server and transfer the compressed files above from the /tmp directory to your computer.

NOTE: There will be multiple copies of the same log file (archive). If you want to make the archive smaller, only include the most recent files.
