Command: consul info

The info command provides various debugging information that can be useful to operators. Depending on if the agent is a client or server, information about different sub-systems will be returned.

There are currently the top-level keys for:

  • agent: Provides information about the agent
  • consul: Information about the consul library (client or server)
  • raft: Provides info about the Raft consensus library
  • serf_lan: Provides info about the LAN gossip pool
  • serf_wan: Provides info about the WAN gossip pool

Here is an example output:

agent:
    check_monitors = 0
    check_ttls = 0
    checks = 0
    services = 0
consul:
    bootstrap = true
    known_datacenters = 1
    leader = true
    server = true
raft:
    applied_index = 45832
    commit_index = 45832
    fsm_pending = 0
    last_log_index = 45832
    last_log_term = 4
    last_snapshot_index = 45713
    last_snapshot_term = 1
    num_peers = 2
    state = Leader
    term = 4
serf_lan:

    event_time = 2
    failed = 0
    intent_queue = 0
    left = 0
    member_time = 7
    members = 3
    query_queue = 0
    query_time = 1

The scheme can also be set to HTTPS by setting the environment variable CONSUL_HTTP_SSL=true.

  • -tls-server-name=<value> - The server name to use as the SNI host when connecting via TLS. This can also be specified via the CONSUL_TLS_SERVER_NAME environment variable.
