What do debug logs contain?

Sure! Mind letting me know what information gets passed by sending over the token?

I thought we had an explanation of what was in the debug log somewhere.. but I can't find it! Basically copies of your configs, some key information about your system to help us troubleshoot.

If you like, you can run pihole -d and then choose no when prompted to upload it, and you can view the file locally at /var/log/pihole_debug.log to see what it contains :slight_smile: (and then either run it again once you're happy with the contents, this time choosing yes to upload)

Some more info about how we process the logs here:

Great, can I edit the debug file and then upload the remainder to tricorder?

You sure can! See about halfway down this FAQ post:

Just to confirm, I can do something like:

/var/log/pihole_debug.log | pihole tricorder

cat /var/log/pihole_debug.log | pihole tricorder or cat <anything> | pihole tricorder.

There are limits on the size of things that will be accepted.
