19.2. Collecting Information from Log Files

You can use the foreman-debug command to collect configuration and log file data for Red Hat Satellite, its back-end services, and system information. This information is collected and written to a tar file. You can also generate reports to view and monitor information about the hosts being maintained.


The foreman-debug command removes all security information such as passwords, tokens, and keys while collecting information. However, the tar file can still contain sensitive information about the Red Hat Satellite Server. Red Hat recommends that you send this information directly to the intended recipient and not to a public target.
