sosreport multi-threaded option sometimes fails
Last modified: 2013-04-12 14:56:01 EDT
using the multi-threaded option for sosreport sometimes generates errors
I just fixed in SVN (revision 93).
Problem was in doCollect(), copyStuff() thread was getting an unexpected
argument (verbosity) and thus causing the exception.
Well, it wasn't unexpected, it wa just unhandled. At one point I'd been passing
verbosity further down the stack to handle increased verbosity levels for debug
output, I guess I just missed getting it into the copyStuff() routine. Do we
want to leave copyStuff() silent, or do we want to move verbosity back in and
I vote for passing it down the stack.
