Issues with applications are often due to issues with the underlying Pods. You can use
kubectl commands to get, find logs for, and delete pods as necessary. Note that Plural automatically configures
kubectl for use with your Plural cluster.
With Plural CLI
To find Pods related to an application with the CLI, you can run:
kubectl get pods -n <application-name>
If you see failed Pods, you can get the logs for the Pods by running:
kubectl logs -n <application-name> <name-of-pod>
We also curate a list of helpful logging shortcuts for each application, which you can use the
plural logs subcommand for, eg with
plural logs list <application> # shows all log tails available plural logs tail <application> <name> # tails that specific log
To delete problematic Pods, run:
kubectl delete pod <pod-name>
In most cases, kubernetes will restart the pod for you. You can always also run
plural bounce to regenerate your deleted Pods.
With Plural Console
If you have the Plural Console installed, you can debug your Kubernetes Pods with the following steps:
Navigate to the Application Overview tab, select the relevant application and click on the
Componentsoption in the menu on the left. Click on the failing component.
Podssection at the top of the screen should have the failing pod; hit the red trash can button located on the right of the screen to delete it.
Head back to the
Buildstab in the sidebar and create a
Bouncebuild to redeploy your deleted Pods.
