1. Proposed title of this feature request  
  [RFE] include sosreport command line options --all-logs and --log-size= in /etc/sos.conf
3. What is the nature and description of the request?  
Currently sosreport only takes --all-logs and --log-size=  as command line options but are not permanently configurable via /etc/sos.conf.

4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)  
When having a huge environment and lots of admins dealing with it it's likely, especially in an escalation situation that one forgets to add theses parameters and not all files are collected needed for initial analysis when huge log files are created (e.g RHEV env).
Further on with puppet, ansible or any other config management in place it would be simple to roll out a common /etc/sos.conf covering this in case it could be configured there.

5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)  
make the --all-logs and --log-size options from sosreport command line also configurable via /etc/sos.conf 
6. For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.
add options to /etc/sos.conf and see if all files (--all-logs) and files up to a certain size (--log-size) are collected.
7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?  
could not find any
8. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release would they like to target (i.e. RHEL5, RHEL6)?  
9. Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?  

10. List any affected packages or components.  

11. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
