Description Bryn M. Reeves 2007-11-21 14:26:10 EST
Description of problem:
There is no support in the RHEL4 sosreport for gathering an lvmdump tarball that
is used to debug LVM2 and device-mapper related problems.

This is a standard format for this data that is supported/maintained by the
upstream project via the lvmdump script that is installed with the lvm2 RPM
(introduced in RHEL-4.5).

Not having this data in the sosreport archive generates needless back/fore
requests for additional info in dealing with LVM2/device-mapper problems.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure sos is installed
2. grep -r /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/sos

Actual results:
$ grep -r /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/sos

Expected results:
$ grep -r lvmdump /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/sos/plugins/ 
    optionList = [("lvmdump", 'collect raw metadata from PVs', 'slow', False)]
    def do_lvmdump(self):
        sosGetCommandOutput("lvmdump -d %s" %
        if self.getOption('lvmdump'):

Comment 3 Bryn M. Reeves 2008-04-16 06:53:22 EDT
There's also a bug in the upstream sos version now in RHEL5 - lvmdump should be
run by default instead of the hard-coded lvm data gathering that now exists.
Comment 7 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2008-05-28 17:28:03 EDT
Unfortunately this bugzilla was not resolved in time for RHEL 4.7 Beta.
It has now been proposed for inclusion in RHEL 4.8 but must regain Product
Management approval.
