This tool has two uses; create an application-specific summary of the contents of a sosreport or a live system and optionally perform extended analysis of those components.

By default all plugins are run but only display information if any is found. If you want to run specific plugins you can choose from a selection (--list-plugins). The default output (stdout) format is yaml to allow easy parsing.


sudo snap install hotsos

NOTE: if your sosreport lives on a separate/remote filesystem you will need the following interface:

sudo snap connect hotsos:removable-media

NOTE: snaps by-design cannot access /tmp
