Reports can also be generated to view and monitor information about the hosts being maintained. The foreman-debug command collects configuration and log data for Red Hat Satellite, its back-end services and system information. This information is collected into a tarball.


foreman-debug removes all security information such as password, tokens and keys while collecting information. However, the tarball can still contain sensitive information about the Red Hat Satellite Server. It is recommended to send this information directly to the intended recipient and not publicly.
