DESCRIPTION

       sosreport  generates  a  compressed tar archive of diagnostic information from the running
       system. The archive may be stored locally or centrally for recording or tracking  purposes
       or  may  be sent to technical support representatives, developers or system administrators
       to assist with technical fault-finding and debugging.

       Sos is modular in design and is able to collect data from a wide range of  subsystems  and
       packages  that  may  be  installed.  An  XML  or  HTML  report  summarizing  the collected
       information is optionally generated and stored within the archive.

OPTIONS

       -l, --list-plugins
              List all available plugins and their options. Plug-ins that would not be enabled by
              the current configuration are listed separately.

       -n, --skip-plugins PLUGNAME[,PLUGNAME]
              Disable  the  specified  plugin(s). Multiple plug-ins may be specified by repeating
              the option or as a comma-separated list.

       -e, --enable-plugins PLUGNAME[,PLUGNAME]
              Enable the specified plugin(s). Multiple plug-ins may be specified by repeating the
              option or as a comma-separated list.

       -o, --only-plugins PLUGNAME[,PLUGNAME]
              Enable  the  specified  plugin(s)  only  (all  other  plugins  should be disabled).
              Multiple plugins may be specified by repeating the option or as  a  comma-separated
              list.

       -k PLUGNAME.PLUGOPT[=VALUE]
              Specify  plug-in  options.  The  option PLUGOPT is enabled, or set to the specified
              value in the plug-in PLUGNAME.

       -a, --alloptions
              Set all boolean options to True for all enabled plug-ins.

       -v, --verbose
              Increase logging verbosity. May be specified multiple times  to  enable  additional
              debugging messages.

       -q, --quiet
              Only log fatal errors to stderr.

       --report
              Enable HTML/XML report writing.

       --config-file CONFIG
              Specify alternate configuration file.

       --tmp-dir DIRECTORY
              Specify  alternate  temporary  directory  to  copy  data  as well as the compressed
              report.

       --batch
              Generate archive without prompting for interactive input.

       --name NAME
              Specify a name to be used for the archive.

       --ticket-number NUMBER
              Specify a ticket number to be used for archive

       --build
              Do not archive copied data. Causes sosreport to leave an uncompressed archive as  a
              temporary file or directory tree.

       --debug
              Enable  interactive debugging using the python debugger. Exceptions in sos or plug-
              in code will cause a trap to the pdb shell.
