ovs-bugtool - Open vSwitch bug reporting utility
Generates a debug bundle with useful information about Open vSwitch on this system and places it in /var/log/ovs-bugtool.
These options influence what categories of data ovs-bugtool collects. --entries=list Collect the capabilities specified in the comma-separated list. --all Collect all available capabilities. --ovs In addition to Open vSwitch configuration and status, ovs-bugtool can collect a variety of relevant system information. This option limits collection to Open vSwitch-specific categories. --log-days=days Include the logs with last modification time in the previous days days in the debug bundle. The number of log files included has a big impact on the eventual bundle size. The default value is 20 days. -y --yestoall Answer yes to all prompts. --capabilities Writes the categories that ovs-bugtool can collect on stdout in XML, then exits.
These options influence the format and destination of ovs-bugtool output. --output=filetype Generates a debug bundle with the specified file type. Options include tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, and zip. --outfile=file Write output to file. Mutually exclusive with --outfd. --outfd=fd Write output to file descriptor fd. This option must be used with --output=tar. --unlimited Do not exclude files which are too large. Also skip checking free disk space. By default up to 90 percent of the free disk space can be used. --debug Print verbose debugging output.
-s --silent Suppress most output to stdout. --help Print a summary of ovs-bugtool usage to stdout, then exit.
Here's a collection of some commonly useful options: ovs-bugtool -y -s --output=tar.gz --outfile=/var/log/bugtool- report.tgz
ovs-bugtool makes many assumptions about file locations and the availability of system utilities. It has been tested on Debian and Red Hat and derived distributions. On other distributions it is likely to be less useful.
