Agent Flare

If you are running Agent 5.3+, you can send necessary troubleshooting information to the Datadog support team with one flare command.

flare gathers all of the Agent’s configuration files and logs into an archive file. It removes sensitive information including passwords, API keys, Proxy credentials, and SNMP community strings. Confirm the upload of the archive to immediately send it to Datadog support. Datadog Agent is completely open source, which allows you to verify the code’s behavior. If needed, the flare can be reviewed prior to sending since the flare prompts a confirmation before uploading it.

In the commands below, replace <CASE_ID> with your Datadog support case ID if you have one, then enter the email address associated with it. If you don’t have a case ID, just enter your email address used to login in Datadog to create a new support case.
