2.40. sos

The sos packages contain a set of tools that gather information from system hardware, logs and configuration files. The information can then be used for diagnostic purposes and debugging.
  • If the sosresport utility becomes unresponsive, a keyboard interrupt (CTRL+C) can fail to terminate it. In such a case, to terminate the process:
    • press Ctrl+Z and execute kill %N (N represents the number of the sosreport job; usually 1) or
    • execute kill -9 %N (N represents the number of the sosreport job; usually 1). (BZ#708346)
