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


       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 Digium.


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

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

       -h, --help               Show help about options
