       recap - dumps periodic information about running applications and resource usage


       recap [OPTION]


       recap  is a user-configurable script that can be run once, or run periodically out of cron
       or systemd.timers to dump information about running processes  and  resource  usage.  It's
       useful  on  servers that have periodic, mysterious performance anomalies for tracking down
       what may be going on at the time of any particular incident.

       The values for which reports are  generated  and  how  many  reports  are  stored  can  be
       overridden in /etc/recap.conf.  The output files from the script are written to BASEDIR.

       -B, --backup
              This  will  perform  a  "backup".  It  will copy the latest log files from the last
              execution to the "backups" directory inside BASEDIR. The files will  be  identified
              by a timestamp in the name.

       -S, --snapshot
              This  will  perform  a "snapshot" report. It will generate a set of output files in
              the "snapshot" directory inside BASEDIR outside of the standard rotation. The files
              will be identified by a timestamp in the name.

       -V, --version
              Print version and exit.

              /usr/lib/systemd/system/recap.{service,timer} - Unit files for running recap periodically.
              /usr/lib/systemd/system/recap-onboot.{service,timer} - Unit files for running recap on boot.
