Sysreport is a utility used to collect data to help Technical Support and
Developers in solving problems associated with Red Hat Linux. This tool gathers as much
information as possible about your system; while trying to avoid
A: creating a large file
B: invading privacy
C: Collecting information that could be
detrimental to the integrity of your system.
The idea/design of this utility is to gather all the valuable information
about your system and keeping that data in a small file (.tar.gz) in case the
problem is network related; the output from this can be moved to a floppy and
sent from a working machine.
When sending this file created by Sysreport please be sure include the
incident #, bug #, the name of the person who requested the file, as well as
your name (Don't forget to attach the tar.gz also). The location to send this output to will be provided to you by the person working your issue; this might either be ftp or e-mail.
Sysreport is released under the same GPL as all Software produced by Red Hat
Inc and is freely distributable.
Please check Fedora for the latest version(s).
