cDOT: downloading pktt trace files

I've dumped network traces to disk using the command 'system node run -node cluster02-02 -command pktt dump', the trace files are listed in the output of 'pktt list'. However when I go to '' there is no directory listing. I've also tried downloading the files using the trace file name, for example '', but nothing happens. Is there a way to download trace files written to / on the node?


I am using a user account that has HTTPS access and I've confirmed by downloading files in /etc/crash and /etc/mlog.

Re: cDOT: downloading pktt trace files

When you are running your packet trace, depening on the node, you need to point it to a directory


so for example


pktt -d /etc/crash - then when you access your SPI, they are located in there


Re: cDOT: downloading pktt trace files


in case you have more files, you can use wget to download all of them at once:


wget -r -l1 --no-check-certificate --no-parent 'https://admin:<password>@<cluste_ip>/spi/<node>/etc/crash/'

If someone is using newer ONTAP versions, there's a new ONTAP 9.2+ network tcpdump command. The traces are stored in a subdirectory of the log directory:


To show packet trace files:
::> network tcpdump trace show
Packet traces are stored in the following path:


Hope that helps
