Gathering debug data in Armbian with sosreport
A detailed archive of system logs and configuration files is needed to analyze various failures, freezes, or simply incorrect behavior of the controller.
A convenient tool for collecting such an archive is the package sosreport .
To use it:
* install the
sudo apt-get install sosreport sysstat
* Enable sysstat:
- edit the
/etc/defaults/sysstat file so that it contains the line
sudo nano /etc/defaults/sysstat
- Start the service with commands:
sudo systemctl enable sysstat sudo systemctl start sysstat
* after a failure, collect the archive as soon as possible:
sudo sosreport -a
We pass the collected archive for analysis, for example, via tech support forum.
