Description Pavel Moravec 2016-04-25 08:39:03 UTC
Description of problem:
foreman-debug collects mongo collection task_status (worth used for investigating pulp task issues). BUT the command in


collects only 20 rows of that table/collection, due to the default (non-clever) limitation of mongo. Please collect _all_ the rows, by replacing:

add_cmd "mongo pulp_database --eval \"db.task_status.find().pretty().shellPrint()\"" "mongo-task_status"


add_cmd "mongo pulp_database --eval \"DBQuery.shellBatchSize = 100000;; db.task_status.find().pretty().shellPrint()\"" "mongo-task_status"

(i.e. add "DBQuery.shellBatchSize = 100000;" there)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. foreman-debug
2. unpack collected f-d
3. check mongo-task_status

Actual results:
mongo-task_status has just 20 entries and the file ends with:

Type "it" for more

Expected results:
mongo-task_status to have all entries

Additional info:
Since the table/collection might be quite big and collecting it might not be necessary, isn't it better to collect e.g. all tasks from past one week or so? Or additionally older not finished tasks?

Comment 9 Chris Brown 2018-07-11 18:53:47 UTC
Satellite 6.4 foreman-debug mongo-task_status output:

COMMAND> mongo pulp_database --eval "DBQuery.shellBatchSize = 200;; db.task_status.find().sort({finish_time: -1}).pretty().shellPrint()"

/usr/sbin/foreman-debug: line 79: mongo: command not found

Comment 10 Lukas Zapletal 2018-07-12 15:09:24 UTC
Chris, this is expected. When you install the command, it will work.

We cannot make mongo CLI a dependency of foreman-debug. If you really think the output must be always there, then file new BZ aganst Packaging to add this as Katello package RPM dependency.

Please confirm first that it works fine when the command is present. I think it is mongo-client RPM package, not sure.

Comment 13 Chris Brown 2018-08-24 19:45:43 UTC
Ok cool, confirmed and verified in Satellite 6.4
