rSeries Diagnostics

This section will go through some of the diagnostic capabilities within the new F5OS layer. Inside the tenant the same BIG-IP diagnostic utilities that customers are used to are still available.

qkviews

rSeries appliances support the ability to generate qkviews to collect and bundle configuration and diagnostic data that can be sent to F5 support or uploaded to iHealth. It is important to understand the rSeries architecture when generating qkviews. Generating a qkview from the F5OS platform layer will capture OS data, container information, and info related to the health of the underlying F5OS layer. To capture tenant level information, you’ll need to run a qkview inside the TMOS layer of the tenant. The following links provide more details:

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K76100544

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K04756153

In general, you can use the qkview utility on rSeries systems to automatically collect configuration and diagnostic information from the system. The qkview utility provided in F5OS-A software captures diagnostic information from the rSeries system and associated containers.

Note: The qkview utility on the rSeries system does not capture diagnostic data from tenant BIG-IP systems. To generate diagnostic data for a tenant BIG-IP, log in to the tenant system and perform the relevant procedure in:

K12878: Generating diagnostic data using the qkview utility: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K12878

The qkview utility on the rSeries system generates machine-readable JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) diagnostic data and combines the data into a single compressed Tape ARchive (TAR) format file. The single TAR file is comprised of embedded TAR files containing the diagnostic data of individual containers running on the system, as well as diagnostic data from the rSeries system. You can upload this file, called a qkview file, to iHealth, or give it to F5 Support to help them troubleshoot any issues.

Note: F5 Support requires a qkview file in all cases in which remote access to the product is not available.

qkview Creation and Upload via webUI

A qkview file for the F5OS layer can be generated from the System Settings > System Reports page. Once finished it can also be uploaded to iHealth.

_images/image117.png

To generate a qkview, click on the button in the upper right-hand corner. It will take some time for the qkview to be generated. Once the qkview is generated, you can click the checkbox next to it, and then select Upload to iHealth. Your iHealth credentials will automatically fill in if you entered them previously and can be cleared if you want to use another account; you can optionally add an F5 Support Case Number and Description when uploading to iHealth.

qkview Creation and Upload via CLI

If you would like to store iHealth credentials within the configuration you may do so via the F5OS CLI. Enter config mode, and then use the system diagnostics ihealth config command to configure a username and password.

appliance-1# config
Entering configuration mode terminal
appliance-1(config)# system diagnostics ihealth config username test@f5.com password
(<AES encrypted string>): ********
appliance-1(config)# commit
Commit complete.
appliance-1(config)#

To generate a qkview from the CLI, run the command system diagnostics qkview capture.

appliance-1(config)# system diagnostics qkview capture filename f5support.qkview.tgz maxfilesize 1000
result  Warning: qkview may contain sensitive data such as secrets, passwords and core files. Handle with care. Please send this file to F5 support.
qkview file f5support.qkview.tgz is being collected.
return code 200

resultint 0
appliance-1(config)#

You can view the status of the capture using the command system diagnostics qkview status.

appliance-1# system diagnostics qkview status
result  {"Busy":true,"Percent":97,"Status":"collating","Message":"Collating data","Filename":"f5support.qkview.tgz"}

resultint 0
appliance-1#

You may also confirm the file has been created by using the file list command, or the system diagnostics qkview list command to see more details about the size and creation date of the file:

appliance-1# file list path diags/shared/qkview/
entries {
    name
f5support.qkview.tgz
}
appliance-1#

appliance-1# system diagnostics qkview list
result  {"qkviews":[{"Filename":"f5support.qkview.tgz","Date":"2022-01-16T16:57:22.983013886Z","Size":208510806}]}

resultint 0
appliance-1#

To upload the qkview file to iHealth using the CLI use the following command; system diagnostics ihealth upload qkview-file <file-name> description “Text for description” service-request-number <SR Number>.

appliance-1# system diagnostics ihealth upload qkview-file af5support.qkview.tgz description "This is a test"
message HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
Location: /support/ihealth/status/Z3HydOfa
Date: Sun, 16 Jan 2022 17:02:36 GMT
Content-Length: 0


errorcode false
appliance-1#

qkview Creation and Upload via API

To generate a qkview from the API, POST the following API call to the F5OS out-of-band management IP.

POST https://{{Appliance1_IP}}:8888/restconf/data/openconfig-system:system/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:diagnostics/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:qkview/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:capture

In the body of the API call, supply the filename for the qkview:

{
    "f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:filename": "my-qkview4.tgz"
}

Below is the following output showing successful intiation of the qkview:

{
    "f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:output": {
        "result": " Warning: qkview may contain sensitive data such as secrets, passwords and core files. Handle with care. Please send this file to F5 support. \nqkview file my-qkview4.tgz is being collected.\nreturn code 200\n ",
        "resultint": 0
    }
}

To view the qkview status via the API, POST the following API call:

POST https://{{Appliance1_IP}}:8888/restconf/data/openconfig-system:system/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:diagnostics/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:qkview/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:status

The output will display the percentage complete, error, or complete status:

{
    "f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:output": {
        "result": " {\"Busy\":false,\"Percent\":100,\"Status\":\"complete\",\"Message\":\"Completed collection.\",\"Filename\":\"my-qkview4.tgz\"}\n ",
        "resultint": 0
    }
}

To upload the qkview file to iHealth using the API, use the following POST API call:

POST https://{{Appliance1_IP}}:8888/restconf/data/openconfig-system:system/f5-system-diagnostics-qkview:diagnostics/f5-system-diagnostics-ihealth:ihealth/f5-system-diagnostics-ihealth:upload

Below is the body of the POST API call:

{
"f5-system-diagnostics-ihealth:qkview-file": "my-qkview4.tgz",
"f5-system-diagnostics-ihealth:description": "This is a test qkview",
"f5-system-diagnostics-ihealth:service-request-number": ""
}

In the output of the API call, the upload initiation is confirmed.

{
    "f5-system-diagnostics-ihealth:output": {
        "message": "HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted\r\nLocation: /support/ihealth/status/sthO7ieL\r\nDate: Tue, 18 Jan 2022 01:31:36 GMT\r\nContent-Length: 0\r\n\r\n",
        "errorcode": false
    }
}

Logging

Many functions inside the F5OS layer will log their events to the platform.log file that resides in the /log/system/ path. You’ll also notice there are other files for other types of logs.

Viewing Logs from the CLI

In the F5OS CLI, the paths are simplified so that you don’t have to know the underlying directory structure. You can use the file list path command to see the files inside the log/system/ directory; use the tab complete to see the options:

appliance-1# file list path log/
Possible completions:
confd/  host/  system/
appliance-1# file list path log/system/
Possible completions:
audit.log                      confd.log          devel.log     devel.log.1    lcd.log           lcd.log.1           lcd.log.2.gz
lcd.log.3.gz                   lcd.log.4.gz       lcd.log.5.gz  logrotate.log  logrotate.log.1   logrotate.log.2.gz  platform.log
reprogram_chassis_network.log  rsyslogd_init.log  snmp.log      startup.log    startup.log.prev  trace/              vconsole_auth.log
vconsole_startup.log           velos.log          webUI/
appliance-1# file list path log/system/

To view the contents of the platform.log file, use the command file show path /log/system/platform.log. This will show the entire log file from the beginning, but may not be the best way to troubleshoot a recent event:

appliance-1# file show log/system/platform.log

Viewing Logs from the webUI

In the intial release you cannot view the F5OS logs directly from the webUI, although you can download them from the webUI. To view the logs, you can use the CLI or API, or download the files and then view, or use a remote syslog server. To download log files from the webUI, go to the System Settings -> File Utilities page. Here there are various logs directories you can download files from. You have the option to Export files to a remote HTTPS server, or Download the files directly to your client machine through the browser.

If you want to download the main platform.log, select the directory /log/system.

Currently F5OS webUI’s logging levels can be configured for local logging, and remote logging servers can be added. The Software Component Log Levels can be changed to have additional logging information sent to the local log. The remote logging has its own Severity level which will ultimately control the maximum level of all messages going to a remote log server regardless of the individual Component Log Levels. This will allow for more information to be logged locally for debug purposes, while keeping remote logging to a minimum. If you would like to have more verbose information going to the remote logging host, you can raise its severity to see additional messages.

Viewing Logs from the API

If the system currently has any active Alarms you can view them via the following API call:

GET https://{{Appliance1_IP}}:8888/restconf/data/openconfig-system:system/alarms

If there are no active alarms, then no output will be displayed.


You can display the F5OS Event Log via the following API call:

GET https://{{Appliance1_IP}}:8888/restconf/data/openconfig-system:system/f5-event-log:events

This will display all events (not just the active ones) from the beginning in the F5OS Event log:

If you need to change the logging level to troubleshoot an issue, you can change the logging level via the APIs. Below is an example of changing the logging level for the l2-agent subsystem to DEBUG.

PATCH https://{{Appliance1_IP}}:8888/restconf/data/openconfig-system:system/logging
{
    "openconfig-system:logging": {
        "f5-openconfig-system-logging:sw-components": {
            "sw-component": {

                }
            }
        }
    }
}

When you are finished troubleshooting, you can set the logging level back to default (INFORMATIONAL).

                }
            }
        }
    }
}

TCPDUMP

You can use the tcpdump utility on the rSeries system to capture network traffic traversing the front panel ports on the platform. You can save the captured traffic as a file to analyze when troubleshooting network issues.

You run the tcpdump utility from the F5OS-A command line using the system diagnostics tcpdump command. The system displays output on the terminal by default, or you can redirect output to a specified file using the outfile keyword. You can specify filters using the bpf keyword followed by the filter expression in quotes.

In addition to the normal tcpdump output, the following fields have been added that are specific to the rSeries system:

  • did - The Destination ID indicates the destination port for the frame.
  • sid - The Source ID indicates the source port for the frame.
  • svc - The Service ID indicates the destination tenant for the packet.
  • sep - The Service Endpoint indicates the service endpoint the packet is sent to.

You can see this in the following example output:

02:28:55.385343 IP 10.10.11.12 > 10.10.11.13: ICMP echo request, id 19463, seq 4, length 64 did:0F sid:04 sep:F svc:08 ld:1 rd:0

More detail on configuration and filtering of tcpdump is provided here:

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K80685750

You can capture traffic for a specific interface using the interface keyword in the tcpdump command. You specify the interface using the following syntax: <port>.<subport>. If you do not supply the interface keyword, or if you specify 0.0 for the interface, no interface filtering occurs and the command captures all interfaces.

Important: The interfaces on the rSeries system are capable of very high traffic rates. To prevent dropped packets during traffic capture, specify appropriate filters to capture only the intended traffic and reduce the total amount of captured traffic.

For example, the following command captures traffic on interface 1.0:

system diagnostics tcpdump interface "1.0"

Specify a Filter

Using the bpf keyword in the tcpdump command, you can specify a filter that limits the traffic capture based on the keywords you supply.

For example, the following command captures traffic only if the source or destination IP address is 10.10.10.100 and the source or destination port is 80:

system diagnostics tcpdump bpf "host 10.10.10.100 and port 80"

The following command captures traffic if the source IP address is 10.10.1.1 and the destination port is 443:

system diagnostics tcpdump bpf "src host 10.10.1.1 and dst port 443"

Specify an Output File

To send the captured traffic to a file, specify the filename using the outfile keyword. The resulting file is placed in the /var/F5/system/shared/tcpdump/ directory by default.

For example, the following command sends the output of the tcpdump command to the example_capture.pcap file:

system diagnostics tcpdump interface "2.0" bpf "src host 10.10.1.1 and dst port 80" outfile example_capture.pcap

Export TCPDUMP From CLI

You can export the tcpdump output file from the rSeries system using the command line file utility in F5OS-A or using the scp utility as the root user. To export a tcpdump output file using the file utility, perform the following procedure.

Note: When using the file utility for export, first copy the tcpdump output file to the /var/shared/ directory. The local-file path for the file export command is then diags/shared/<filename>, as shown in the following example.

Impact of procedure: Performing the following procedure should not have a negative impact on your system.

Log in to the command line on the rSeries system as the admin user. To export a file, use the following syntax:

file export protocol <https | scp | sftp> local-file diags/shared/<tcpdump_filename> remote-host <host_address> remote-file <path/to/remote_file> username <user>

For example, to export the /var/shared/example_capture.pcap file to the /tmp/ directory of the remote host at 10.10.10.100 using scp protocol, enter the following command:

Note: To disable remote system identity verification, use the insecure option to the file command.

file export protocol scp local-file diags/shared/example_capture.pcap remote-host 10.10.10.100 remote-file /tmp/example_capture.pcap username admin

At the prompt, to transfer the file, enter the password for the remote host. To check the status of the file transfer, enter the following command: file transfer-status. When complete, your output is similar to the following example:

3    |Export file|SCP     |diags/shared/example_capture.pcap                         |10.10.10.100       |/tmp/example_capture.pcap                          |         Completed|

Console Access via Built-In Terminal Server

You may have a need to access the console of a tenant to diagnose a problem, or to watch it boot up. rSeries provides a built-in terminal server function that will proxy network connections to individual tenant console ports. Specific TCP ports on the rSeries F5OS IP address have been reserved and mapped to console ports as follows:

  • Chassis partition ports 700x map to tenant IDs (requires tenant name as username)

Console Access to Tenant via Built-In Terminal Server

You may have a need to access the console of a tenant to diagnose a problem, or to watch it boot up. rSeries provides a built-in terminal server function that will proxy network connections to a tenant console. VIPRION and iSeries provided a vconsole capability for vCMP guest access, which required a user to authenticate to the device CLI first before they could run the vconsole command.

When an rSeries tenant is created and deployed, a listening ssh port will be configured on port 7001 of the F5OS layer. After a tenant is created, you will need to set the tenant password and tweak the Expiry Date to force a password change before a user can connect via the terminal server.

Once a tenant is created from the F5OS CLI, enter the command show system aaa authentication. Note that there is a username that corresponds to each tenant that has been created (tenant1, tenant2, tenant3, etc… but will match the configured name of the tenant) and each of these have the role of tenant-console. Note the expiry date is set for 1, which means expired.

r5900-2#

For tenant1 to have console access you must first set a password for that user using the command system aaa authentication users user <tenant-name> config set-password password. When prompted, enter the desired password for this tenant’s console access. Next, set the tenants expiry-date to -1 (no expiration date) and then commit to enable the changes.

r5900-2# config
Entering configuration mode terminal
r5900-2(config)# system aaa authentication users user tenant1 config set-password password

r5900-2(config)# system aaa authentication users user tenant1 config expiry-date
(<string>) (1): -1
r5900-2(config-user-tenant1)# commit
Commit complete.
r5900-2(config-user-tenant1)#

Now it will be possible to remotely ssh using a specific username and port pointed at the F5OS IP address to connect directly to the console port of the tenant. The username will be the name of the tenant, and the port will be tcp port 7001. Below is an example of the output from the show tenants command within the F5OS layer. You can connect to this instance via the F5OS out-of-band management IP using tenant1 as the username and port 7001.

The built-in terminal server will switch the connection to the appropriate tenant terminal server port. Once connected, you will still need to log in to the tenant as root and change the default password. In the example below, the username is tenant1 (matches the tenant name), and the port is 7001.

FLD-ML-00054045:~ jmccarron$ ssh tenant1@10.255.0.135 -p 7001
