How to get the relevant logs/metrics

settings.js and settings.anon.js

The exact settings.js and settings.anon.js as it exists in your config bucket. You have a direct link to it in your Accurate.Video stacks output section. Download this settings.js and the settings.anon.js that should be under the adapter/ folder and attach it to the support ticket.

config bucket url

View after you've pressed the config bucket url

Adapter Logs

If you go to the Accurate.Video stack you've created and look at the resources tab you'll see a Logical ID with the name InfrastructureStack, click the Physical ID of that stack.

finding the infrastructure stack

Then go to the resource tab again for the InfrastructureStack and look for the Logical ID LogGroup, and click its Physical ID.

finding the log group

There you should see one or more entries of the "Log stream" av-adapter/av-adapter/<xxxx>. Click on the log stream with the most up to date "Last event time"

finding the correct adapter logstream

There make sure all filters are cleared and on the Actions button choose "Download search results". Attach the downloaded CSV file in your support ticket.

Job error log and metadata

If you have a failing job the job action itself should return an error. To give us the direct relevant error you need to go in via the accurate video frontend and go to the jobs tab (make sure your user has the right to see the jobs tab). Then there you can click on the job entry that has the Failed status and see the different actions that ran and failed.

jobs list

On the failing action press the name of the action to get the metadata of the job error log.

jobs action list

Then select all the metadata, copy and paste it into a text-file.

jobs metadata

After this go to the box up in the upper right and choose Error log (if the entry exists) and do the same with the text that shows up there, select it all and copy and paste it into a separate text-file. When creating the support ticket, attach both text-files. Or just the metadata text-file if there's no Error log.

Parameter Values

To get the parameter values, go to the cloudformation service in the AWS Console on the region you've deployed Accurate.Video, choose the stack and go to the Parameters tab. There you simply select all the parameters with your mouse by click and drag and pressing Ctrl+C to copy it, then you simply paste it with Ctrl+V in a text document. Attach this text document to the support ticket

Current Settings

We have an API endpoint /api/settings which can be called upon to get all the current settings you've set. That includes job templates and user roles (no passwords though). But in order to call on this endpoint we recommend using curl and the runner credentials. The runner credentials is created on creation of the Accurate Video stack.

In order to get to runner credentials start with going to the resources tab on you stack in AWS Cloudformation, from there click on the Physical ID of the AdapterSecretStack.

Secret sub stack

Then go to the resources tab again and click the Physical ID of the AuthRunnerSecret.

Physical ID of the auth runner secret

There you should be able to see the "Secret value" section and in that section there should be a button "Retrieve secret valuen", press it.

retrieve secret value

The username and password used by the runner will then show up. Write down and save these credentials, we're gonna use em to create the curl command which will output all the current settings.

auth runner secret

Now simply call this command, but substitute the "example.com" domain for your domain and the <username> <password> for the runner credentials you've found.

curl --request GET 'https://example.com/api/settings/' --user <username>:<password>

Remember to save the output of this command and save into a text file with a descriptive name such as "current-settings.txt", attach it with your support ticket.

Accurate.Video version

This one should be taken from the latest template URL you used. The URL is on the format

https://<your-bucket-name>.s3.eu-north-1.amazonaws.com/<version>/packaged/main-core.yaml

Simply supply us with whatever was in <version> for you.

Top SQL Statements

First go to the Adapter DB Instance by going to the Accurate.Video stack you've created in AWS, click on the resources tab, then click on on the Physical ID of the AdapterDatabaseStack.

Then again go to the resources tab and click on the Physical ID of the DBInstance.

Finding the dbinstance

Save the database id in the upper corner for future reference. Preferably copy to a text-file.

Go back to the the Amazon RDS Service, click on performance insights.

rds menu

Click on the bar where you choose DB instance and make sure you choose the DB with the ID you wrote down earlier. It might take a few minutes for the DB to show up in the dropdown.

performance insights

In performance insight choose to view "all" past and scroll down to the "Top SQL" section. Wait for atleast 10 minutes, do a refresh and look at the result.

performance insights view

If there's any calls that are a lot larger then the other calls, so much that the other calls is almost insignificant compared to them, we need to see those statements. Click on the line in the "SQL statements" column and copy paste the expression that shows up in the bubble next to the line. Copy paste this expression, paste it to a text-file and attach this to the support ticket.
