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.
