sosreport collects truncated PCP pmlogger binaries that are useless

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • pmlogger binary logfiles (/var/log/pcp/pmlogger/$(hostname)/<unique-name>.0) exceed 100MB in size
  • sosreport in that case truncates them to collect just 100MB tail of them
  • such a tail of a binary file is useless

How to collect whole PCP log file?


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • sos 3.5 or 3.6
  • pcp any version
