Troubleshooting Parca Agent

Web UI

The HTTP endpoints can be used to inspect the active profilers by visiting port 8080 of the process (the host-port that the agent binds to can be configured using the --http-address flag).

For example, that might look like the following:

Active Profilers

And by clicking "Show Profile" in one of the rows, the currently collected profile will be rendered once the collection finishes (this can take up to 10 seconds).

Profile View

A raw profile can also be downloaded here by clicking "Download Pprof". Note that in the case of native stack traces such as produced from a compiled language like C, C++, Go, Rust, etc., are not symbolized, and if this pprof profile is analyzed using the standard pprof tooling, the symbols will need to be available to the tooling.

Logging

To debug potential errors, enable the debug logging using --log-level=debug.
