Troubleshooting

Introduction

Kotori’s log output is directed to /var/log/kotori/kotori.log. If you experience any troubles, the first idea should be to review it.

No data in Grafana I

  • Q: I don’t see any data!

  • A: Most probably, Kotori does not have appropriate access to the Grafana instance. This might happen on the initial installation after Grafana encouraged you to change the default credentials away from admin/admin. If you did so, please adjust Kotori’s configuration within e.g. /etc/kotori/kotori.ini.

No data in Grafana II

  • Q: I still don’t see any data!

  • A: Most probably, your system time is wrong or deviates from the time of the system accessing Grafana from. For example, you won’t see any data if the server time is in the future.

Tip

So, either enable the NTP feature of systemd:

timedatectl set-ntp true

or install chrony:

apt install chrony

or implement any other valid equivalent to keep the system time sound.

No data in Grafana III

  • Q: I still don’t see any data!

  • A: Try to increase the log level by adding --debug-foobar command line options to /etc/default/kotori and get back to us, stacktrace or GTFO. See /opt/kotori/bin/kotori --help for available options.

Example /etc/default/kotori:

KOTORI_OPTS="--debug-mqtt --debug-influx"
