gcloud alpha compute diagnose export-logs

NAME
gcloud alpha compute diagnose export-logs - triggers instance to gather logs and upload them to a Cloud Storage Bucket
SYNOPSIS
gcloud alpha compute diagnose export-logs INSTANCE_NAME [--collect-process-traces] [--zone=ZONE] [GCLOUD_WIDE_FLAG]
DESCRIPTION
(ALPHA) Gathers logs from a running Compute Engine VM and exports them to a Google Cloud Storage Bucket. Outputs a path to the logs within the Bucket.
POSITIONAL ARGUMENTS
INSTANCE_NAME
Name of the instance to operate on. For details on valid instance names, refer to the criteria documented under the field 'name' at: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/reference/rest/v1/instances
FLAGS
--collect-process-traces
Collect a 10 minute trace of the running system. On Windows, this utilizes Windows Performance Recorder. It records CPU, disk, file, and network activity during that time.
--zone=ZONE
Zone of the instance to operate on. If not specified, the user may be prompted to select a zone. gcloud will attempt to identify the zone by searching for resources in the user's project. If the zone cannot be determined, the user will then be prompted with all Google Cloud Platform zones.

To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, the user can set the compute/zone property:

  $ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE

A list of zones can be fetched by running:

  $ gcloud compute zones list

To unset the property, run:

  $ gcloud config unset compute/zone

Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.

GCLOUD WIDE FLAGS
These flags are available to all commands: --account, --billing-project, --configuration, --flags-file, --flatten, --format, --help, --impersonate-service-account, --log-http, --project, --quiet, --trace-token, --user-output-enabled, --verbosity.

Run $ gcloud help for details.

EXAMPLES
To export logs and upload them to a Cloud Storage Bucket, run:
  $ gcloud alpha compute diagnose export-logs example-instance \
      --zone=us-central1
NOTES
This command is currently in ALPHA and may change without notice. If this command fails with API permission errors despite specifying the right project, you may be trying to access an API with an invitation-only early access whitelist. This variant is also available:
  $ gcloud beta compute diagnose export-logs
