Hello snappers. We have a tool called hotos that we use to perform analysis of both sosreports and live hosts. It comprises of a set of “plugins” that extract application-specific information for applications such as Openstack, Kubernetes and Ceph and presents findings that might help in the debug/analysis of problems. The snap been strictly confined from the start and this works well for the scenario where you want to analyse a sosreport but less well when wanting run against an actual host. This is basically because, like the sosreport tool itself, it needs access to basically everything on the system in order to collect information relevant to the application that is running including network information, logs, etc configs, /proc info as well as locations specific to the application itself e.g. /var/lib, /run etc etc. Of course some of these locations can be accessed with the use of existing interfaces but some are not and I believe that in this instance requiring interface for all these areas will be counterproductive. As such I believe the appropriate way to allow users to run this on hosts is to allow classic mode. It is probably worth mentioning that the target audience is likely the same as those who already use tools like sosreport and as such expect them to be able access any data necessary. Currently to achieve this users have the install the snap and then run the script like /snap/hotsos/current/hotsos.sh which i would really like to avoid. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Thanks.
