Accessing Contour’s /debug/pprof Service

Contour exposes the net/http/pprof handlers for go tool pprof and go tool trace by default on This service is useful for profiling Contour. To access it from your workstation use kubectl port-forward like so,

# Get one of the pods that matches the Contour deployment
$ CONTOUR_POD=$(kubectl -n projectcontour get pod -l app=contour -o name | head -1)
# Do the port forward to that pod
$ kubectl -n projectcontour port-forward $CONTOUR_POD 6060
