Description of problem:
Currently, there is the possibility to set "--plugin-timeout".
I am opening this RFE for the possibility to set a globally timeout for commands executed by plugins.
sosreport fails to gather data because command "vdsm-tool dump-volumen-chains <UUID_of_SD>" of vdsm plugin does take longer time for bigger storage domains
after increasing the timeout for the cmd_timeout it finished successfully.
Having global (or even plugin-based) option to manually set cmd timeout sounds sane to me.
As RHEL7 does not accept RFEs, I am reassigning it to RHEL8 - if we propose a PR in a reasonable time, we can get it in 8.5/9.0 .
Upstream PR https://github.com/sosreport/sos/pull/2466 raised.
