sos.conf — sosreport configuration

Description

sosreport uses a configuration file at /etc/sos.conf.

Parameters

There are three sections in the sosreport configuration file: general, plugins and tunables. Options are set using 'ini'-style name = value pairs. Disabling/enabling a boolean option is done the same way like on command line (e.g. process.lsof=off).

Some options accept a comma separated list of values.

Using options that dont expect a value (like all-logs or no-report) will result in enabling those options, regardless of value set.

Sections are parsed in the ordering:
- [general]
- [plugins] (disable)
- [plugins] (enable)
- [tunables]

[general]

<option>      Sets (long) option value. Short options (i.e. z=auto)
             are not supported.

[plugins]

disable       Comma separated list of plugins to disable.
enable        Comma separated list of plugins to enable.

[tunables]

plugin.option Alter available options for defined plugin.

Examples

To use quiet and batch mode with 10 threads:

[general]
batch=yes
build=true
threads=10

To disable the 'general' and 'filesys' plugins:

[plugins]
disable = general, filesys

To disable rpm package verification in the RPM plugin:

[tunables]
rpm.rpmva = off
