Firstly, very new to Devops/kubernetes. I inherited a GitLab installation and have had maybe 3 months using it now and I must say I love it!
I am learning as much as I can and today I had an issue with GitLab for the first time and I am here to find out how best to diagnose the problem.
Components of my install:
- 500 errors pages
- The odd 502 error page
- Messages like: “An error occurred while fetching folder content.”
- There was an error fetching the pipelines. Try again in a few moments or contact your support team.
What I have done thus far
I performed a rolling restart of all the gitlab pods in the hope this would resolve the issue.

I was unsure how to restart some of them as you can see by the age.
I had a look at the logs by performing the following command:
kubectl logs deploy/gitlab-production-webservice-default -n gitlab-production --tail=2 -f
But there were no logs when the errors occured.
I checked disk space
Which seemed fine.
Q: Does the community have any advise/guidelines in terms of how to go about troubleshooting the installation?
