I’m currently working as a developer but also manages the infrastructure of our project which is hosted in Google Cloud Platform. GCP has web console for viewing logs for each of our services and using the web is a bit tedious to me. Using the command line works like charm.
First, display all pods of your services and the specific namespace. In my case, I wanted to show all pods for all my services in staging and my namespace is
To show all namespaces, just run:
kubectl get ns
To show all pods in
jx-staging namespace, run:
jx get pods --namespace jx-staging
It should show you something like below:
NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE jx-project-manager-7fb98d978b-88dg4 1/1 Running 0 3h20m jx-project-manager-7fb98d978b-h4mqf 1/1 Running 0 3h20m jx-project-manager-7fb98d978b-j8zbn 1/1 Running 0 3h19m jx-pm-mongodb-ha-0 1/1 Running 0 33h jx-pm-mongodb-ha-1 1/1 Running 0 4d14h jx-pm-mongodb-ha-2 1/1 Running 0 159m jx-authservice-5b94558886-bjfhp 1/1 Running 0 2d6h jx-authservice-5b94558886-fcd9j 1/1 Running 0 2d6h jx-authservice-5b94558886-fdzdm 1/1 Running 0 2d6h
And to view the logs of a specific pod which contains the service, just run something like:
kubectl logs jx-project-manager-7fb98d978b-88dg4 --namespace jx-staging
You should get the logs of the specified service/application.
