epadmin snapshot target — Creates a diagnostic snapshot of an active or failed node.
Creates and manages snapshot archive files. Diagnostic information is captured by the
snapshot target, which creates an archive containing log files and other information required to help troubleshoot problems. A snapshot
archive can be captured for an active or a failed node. TIBCO Support may ask you to create a snapshot for certain cases.
Snapshots are taken against active nodes using the
adminport and optional
hostname parameters or the
servicename global parameters. Snapshots are taken against failed nodes using the
installpath command parameter pointing to the node directory.
In TIBCO Streaming releases before 10.6.0, this command created the snapshot archive in a directory named
snapshots/, parallel to the node directory, and you could use the
parameter to specify a directory relative to that location.
Since release 10.6.0, this command creates the snapshot archive on the local file system, in the current working directory
of the epadmin command. You can also specify an alternate location with the
destination parameter, using an absolute path or one relative to the current directory.
[ in syntax examples is a reminder that this command requires either the global parameter
‑‑servicename or the
‑‑hostname combination to identify the node or cluster of interest.
The created archive is named
[create snapshot epadmin
[create snapshot --description="Issue 4567" epadmin
[create snapshot --destination=/tmp epadmin
[create snapshot --includeclasspaths epadmin
[create snapshot --installpath=/Users/sbuser/Nodes/
