crm_report - Create archive of everything needed when reporting cluster problems

Required option

-f, --from TIME

increase verbosity (may be specified multiple times)

-v, --version

display software version


display software features

-t, --to TIME

time at which all problems were resolved (as "YYYY-M-D H:M:S" including the quotes; default "now")

-T, --cts TEST

CTS test or set of tests to extract


CTS master logfile

-n, --nodes NODES

node names for this cluster (only needed if cluster is not active on this host; accepts -n "a b" or -n a -n b)


do not search for cluster logs

-l, --logfile FILE

log file to collect (in addition to detected logs if -M is not specified; may be specified multiple times)


additional regular expression to match variables to be masked in output (default: "passw.*")


additional regular expression to match in log files for analysis (default: CRIT: ERROR:)

-S, --single-node

-c, --cluster TYPE

-A, --openais

force the cluster type to be openais

-C, --corosync

force the cluster type to be corosync

-H, --heartbeat

force the cluster type to be heartbeat

-u, --user USER

username to use when collecting data from other nodes (default root)

-D, --depth

search depth to use when attempting to locate files

-e, --rsh

command to use to run commands on other nodes (default ssh -T)


use defaults suitable for being called by sosreport tool (behavior subject to change and not useful to end users)

DEST, --dest DEST

custom destination directory or file name

crm_report works best when run from a cluster node on a running cluster, but can be run from a stopped cluster node or a Pacemaker Remote node.

If neither --nodes nor --single-node is given, crm_report will guess the node list, but may have trouble detecting Pacemaker Remote nodes. Unless --single-node is given, the node names (whether specified by --nodes or detected automatically) must be resolvable and reachable via the command specified by -e/--rsh using the user specified by -u/--user.
