Get Support File
Get Support File is an Dynatrace Network Analyzer function for gathering various log files and system reports into one zip file that can be sent to support when you are debugging an Dynatrace Network Analyzer installation.
When you are troubleshooting an Dynatrace Network Analyzer console or agent installation, you can use the Get Support File function to automatically gather information about the systems involved. This information is packaged in one compressed file that you can send to your Dynatrace representative for analysis.
There are two ways to use Get Support File to gather system information about a machine on which you have installed the Dynatrace Network Analyzer Agent:
If you run Get Support File directly from an agent machine, Get Support File will generate a system report focused strictly on that machine. For more information, see Agent File Contents.
If you run Get Support File from the Dynatrace Network Analyzer console machine, Get Support File will generate a system report on the console machine and on any or all of the selected Windows and Unix machines running the Dynatrace Network Analyzer Agent. The resulting report will concern the console machine and all selected agent machines. For more information, see Console File Contents.
You could gather most of this information yourself by locating the right log files, running the right system reports, and zipping all of the results together, but Get Support File makes the process easier and faster.
