1. Feature Overview:
Feature Id:	[201247]
a. Name of Feature:	sysdiag package
b. Feature Description
The sysdiag package provides a front end for diagnostics, service procedures, system inventory,
service parameter configuration, and servicelog queries.  Many of these actions can currently be
done from the command line, but sysdiag provides a simpler interface.

2. Feature Details:
Sponsor:	PPC

Arch Specificity: Both
Delivery Mechanism: Direct from community
Category:	Power Servicability
Request Type:	Package - New
d. Upstream Acceptance:	In Progress
Sponsor Priority	2
f. Severity: Medium
IBM Confidential:	no
Code Contribution:	IBM code
g. Component Version Target:	sysdiag 0.3.0

3. Business Case
While there are some inventory and diagnostic tools available from the command line, many of them
are unknown to customers or are difficult to use.  Simplification of service configuration,
diagnostics, and repair procedures will allow customers to more easily diagnose and service their
systems without having to resort to help lines.

How is this different from/an improvement on OpenHPI or similar tools?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2009-03-03 17:22:53 EST
Putting back in NEEDINFO.
Comment 4 Roman Rakus 2009-03-17 10:16:03 EDT
Today sysdiag is not in good shape.
1) It has tdb package inside. It should be saparate package.
2) It uses old version of sysfs-utils and should be rewrited to use sysfs-utils version >= 2.0.0.

Issue 1 is easy to fix. I can provide patch. But I'm not much familiar with sysfsutils.
Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-06-24 13:50:10 EDT
