DESCRIPTION

sosreport generates a compressed tarball of debugging information for the system it is run on that can be sent to technical support reps that will give them a more complete view of the overall system status.  

OPTIONS

-l, --list-plugins
This will list all available plugins showing which ones will be enabled by the current configuration. It will also show all plugin options which can be modified using the -k option (see below).
-n, --skip-plugins PLUGNAME[,PLUGNAME]
Do not load specified plugin(s). To specify multiple plugins, separate them with a comma.
-e, --enable-plugins PLUGNAME[,PLUGNAME]
Enable the specified plugin(s). To specify multiple plugins, separate them with a comma.
-o, --only-plugins PLUGNAME[,PLUGNAME]
Enable the specified plugin(s) only (all other plugins should be disabled). To specify multiple plugins, separate them with a comma.
-k PLUGNAME.PLUGOPT[=VALUE]
This is used to specify options for plugins. A list of available plugin options can be obtained from the output of --list-plugins. If no value is specified and the option is a boolean (on/off), it will be set to "on".
-a, --alloptions
Enable all (boolean) options for all loaded plugins.
-v, --verbose
Increase the verbosity of the output as sosreport is running. Multiple -v mean more verbosity.
--no-progressbar
Do not display a progress bar (ETA will not be available).
--no-multithread
Disable multithreaded collection and analysis of the sosreport data.
