Fixed In Version: sos-3.2-36.el7ost.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, the Swift sos plug-in used an incorrect regular expression for the location of the Swift configuration files. Consequently, irrelevant files matched the regular expression, and the plug-in encountered an error. This update fixes the regular expression. As a result, only the intended files match, and the error no longer occurs.

Description Poornima 2015-09-07 10:45:31 UTC
Description of problem:
sosreport reports regex errors on openstack deployment.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run below command for openstack profile or only openstack_swift plugin

# mkdir -p /tmp/bug/regex
# sosreport -p openstack --batch --tmp-dir /tmp/bug/regex
# sosreport -o openstack_swift --batch --tmp-dir /tmp/bug/regex

Actual results: Below errors are observed:

 Running 10/10: openstack_swift...        

[plugin:openstack_swift] regex substitution failed for '/etc/swift/container.builder' with: ''utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x80 in position 0: invalid start byte'
[plugin:openstack_swift] regex substitution failed for '/etc/swift/container.ring.gz' with: ''utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x8b in position 1: invalid start byte'

Is it reproducible with some el7 (not el7ost) package?

If not, please reassign product/component like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1247630 has.

Comment 4 Bryn M. Reeves 2015-09-07 11:31:01 UTC
The openstack_swift plugin in sos-3.2-16.el7 does not do *ANY* regex processing:

$ rhpkg gitbuildhash sos-3.2-16.el7

$ git checkout 687b32d6f85696e0acb7e46f73b3d69a2524495a

$ rhpkg --dist=rhel-7.1 prep

$ grep postproc sos-3.2/sos/plugins/openstack_swift.py | wc -l

So this is nothing to do with the RHEL product or RHEL packages; please re-direct this bug to the OST sos maintainers.

I suspect it's a problem in:


Which maps to upstream:

commit 02ef6e2ba8d1a8fe4468aaa8be0ae88f8c74646a
Author: Lee Yarwood <lyarwood@redhat.com>
Date:   Wed Jul 15 15:42:50 2015 +0100

    [openstack] Ensure openstack passwords and secrets are obfuscated.
    - Add a postproc method to ceilometer, cinder, glance, hoirzon and swift.
    - Add missing keys to the remaining plugins.
    - Modify the regular expression used by all plugins to ignore commented
      out keys.
    - Modify all plugins to use do_path_regex_sub() to apply regex to all
      collected configuration files.
