Something doesn't work?

To resolve an issue as quickly as possible, it is best to report it directly to the issue tracker. This is the most reliable method.

Report a bug

When creating an issue report, it is essential to include the following information:

  1. The version of the CLI (obtained from running dstack --version), the operating system, Python, and the versions of local Python libraries (pip freeze or conda list).
  2. The source code for a minimal example that reproduces the issue.
  3. The exact steps required to reproduce the issue.
  4. The expected behavior.
  5. The actual behavior, including the error message or exception traceback.
  6. The logs, which can be found in the corresponding location depending on where the workflow was run:

    • For local runs, the logs are stored in the ~/.dstack/tmp/runner/configs/<runner-id>/logs/<runner-id> text file.
    • For remote AWS runs, the logs are stored in the /dstack/runners/<bucket> CloudWatch group in the <runner-id> CloudWatch stream (within the configured AWS region).
    • For remote GCP runs, the logs are stored under the projects/dstack/logs/dstack-runners-<bucket>-<runner-id> log name. To filter out the logs of a particular run, type dstack-runners <run-name> into the Logs Explorer search field.
  7. Screenshots (if applicable).

Providing this information will help ensure that the issue can be resolved as efficiently as possible.
