Available since 1.4.0

Asynchronously create a snapshot of Kuzzle's state. Depending on the configuration of Kuzzle, it may include the following:

  • a coredump of Kuzzle
  • the current Kuzzle configuration
  • server logs
  • Node.js binary & properties
  • a list of OS properties
  • plugins configuration
  • usage statistics of the dumped instance

(See configuration)

The generated directory can be used to feed a complete report to the support team. This report is the same as the one generated during a crash.

Note: in a Cluster environment, the dump action will be propagated across all nodes.
