This guide covers more advanced debugging topics such as collecting runtime profiling data from GitOps Toolkit components.
As a user, this page normally should be a last resort, but you may be asked by a maintainer to share a collected profile to debug e.g. performance issues.
Collecting a profile
To collect a profile, port-forward to the component’s metrics endpoint and collect the data from the endpoint of choice:
$ kubectl port-forward -n <namespace> deploy/<component> 8080
$ curl -Sk -v http://localhost:8080/debug/pprof/heap > heap.out
The collected profile
can be analyzed using
or shared with one of the maintainers.
kubectl top gives a limited (and at times inaccurate) overview of
resource usage, it is often better to make use of the Grafana metrics
to gather insights. See
Flux Prometheus metrics for a
guide on how to visualize this data with a Grafana dashboard.
