lnd ships with a few useful features for debugging, such as a built-in profiler and tunable logging levels. If you need to submit a bug report for
lnd, it may be helpful to capture debug logging and performance data ahead of time.
You can enable debug logging in
lnd by passing the
--debuglevel flag. For example, to increase the log level from
⛰ lnd --debuglevel=debug
You may also specify logging per-subsystem, like this:
⛰ lnd --debuglevel=<subsystem>=<level>,<subsystem2>=<level>,...
lnd has a built-in feature which allows you to capture profiling data at runtime using pprof, a profiler for Go. The profiler has negligible performance overhead during normal operations (unless you have explicitly enabled CPU profiling).
To enable this ability, start
lnd with the
--profile option using a free port.
⛰ lnd --profile=9736
lnd running, you can use the pprof endpoint on port 9736 to collect runtime profiling data. You can fetch this data using
curl like so:
⛰ curl http://localhost:9736/debug/pprof/goroutine?debug=1...
