Bucket #

The bucket component of Thanos is a set of commands to inspect data in object storage buckets. It is normally run as a stand alone command to aid with troubleshooting.

Example:

$ thanos bucket verify --objstore.config-file=bucket.yml

The content of bucket.yml:

type: GCS
config:
  bucket: example-bucket

Bucket can be extended to add more subcommands that will be helpful when working with object storage buckets by adding a new command within /cmd/thanos/bucket.go.
