       autosupport — interactive script to provide Digium[tm]'s support with information


       autosupport [OPTION] [prefix]


       autosupport  is  a  script  that  is  normally run by a user contacting Digium's Technical
       Support to automate gathering support information. It  will  probe  the  system  for  some
       run-time  and system information, and generate a backup of Asterisk related configuration.
       An optional parameter for a prefix may be specified which is typically used to  specify  a
       Digium Technical Support Ticket ID.

       The script requires root privileges to run, and writes all output in the home directory of
       the user running the script. For the purposes of this document, this will be  referred  to
       as /root/ henceforth.

       The  system information is written to /root/digiuminfo.txt and the backup of configuration
       (and the system information file) are written to a tarball in /root/ with a base  name  of
       digium-info.  A  Date Stamp will be appended, and if specified the optional parameter will
       be a prefix. The tarball at least is expected to be attached  to  a  support  ticket  with


       prefix         Used  to prefix the file names. Typically a Digium Technical Support Ticket

       -n, --non-interactive    Run without requiring user input

       -h, --help               Show help about options
