Description Terry Bowling 2014-07-18 12:21:37 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently, the sosreport does not collect the /var/log/mcelog file as detailed in KCS https://access.redhat.com/solutions/298163

This is very useful when troubleshooting customer issues when syslog logs the following types of events:

      [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged


This file may not exist if the mcelog service is not running, but if the file does exist, sosreport should collect it.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

sos-2.2-47.el6_5.1.noarch

Comment 2 Bryn M. Reeves 2014-07-18 13:08:24 UTC
You must be using an older version than the one specified in comment #0. This was added in 2012 in sos-2.2-28.el6:
