NAME

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
