Creating a Support Bundle

Our support team may request a support bundle from you. The support file is an archive containing logs, diganostic data, and system information that helps the team diagnose problems.

To create a support bundle:

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Launch the support bundler utility:


The support bundler will collect diagnostic information and logs, and bundle them into a .tar.gz archive in your /tmp/ directory. Support bundle files look like this: supportbundle-client-2021-04-21T21212112Z.tar.gz.

Troubleshooting Client Crashes

When troubleshooting issues involving a client crash, system crash dumps are extremely helpful. Some systems may not have crash dumps enabled; if this is the case, you must enable it in order to capture the crash data.

Crash dumps are disabled by setting the size limit to 0. To check if there is a limit on the size of core dumps use the ulimit command:

ulimit -c
The response will indicate the limit on core dumps. If the response is 0, it indicates that core dumps are disabled (limited to a size of zero blocks), and you must enable core dumps.

If required, enable crash dumps by setting the limit to unlimited:

ulimit -S -c unlimited pcoip-client

Then, reproduce your issue and collect the support bundle. After completing this sequence, reset the crash dump setting to its previous level (this example will set it to zero, or disabled):

ulimit -S -c 0
