Table of Contents


The mc admin trace command displays the results of an HTTP TRACE request against each MinIO server in a deployment.

Use mc admin on MinIO Deployments Only

MinIO does not support using mc admin commands with other S3-compatible services, regardless of their claimed compatibility with MinIO deployments.


Use mc admin trace to perform an HTTP trace of each MinIO server in the deployment:

mc admin trace ALIAS
  • Replace ALIAS with the alias of the MinIO deployment.


mc admin trace has the following syntax:

mc admin trace [FLAGS] TARGET
