This is a top-down general guidelines for checking through the Genesis ZX log files to look for issues. Or, just send the log into support via our case creation.
Typical log sizes are 3-5MB in size.
test.logand check first uptime and see how long the system was up
- Next look at further top tests.log
- look for wait time cpu, memory used and free memory for general server issues
netstatarea of the log - check the network health
- look for the speed and health of the Ethernet port, full duplex,
ifconfigand look for errors, drops etc. You can see the IF bond is having drops then look at the eth NICs themselves.
- Next look at
critical_errors. These errors will be in the same as what was the GUI for notifing.
dmesg2and look for HW issues. Things like PCI or MB issues Could be logged here
kernel-sys.loghas iSCSI information, If you are not using iSCSI Could you skip this log
zfs.log- information about all disks connected to the system.
- ZFS list, pools info iostat information, settings of ZFS
arcstat.pycan be looked at, the first line can be Ignored, but the next lines can be INSPECTED for cache to see miss so you can see how the RAM is EFFECTIVE for ZFS, hence performance
arc_summary.pycan be looked at for full statistics to see how the entire RAM is being utilized
shares- can see Protocols used and the shares have been created
syslog-err- can see firmware issues with type RAID cards, or Intel, or other type of HW errors.
