Gathering debug data in Armbian with sosreport
To analyze various failures, freezes or simply incorrect behavior of the controller, a detailed archive of system logs and configuration files is needed.
A convenient tool for collecting such an archive is the sosreport package.
To use it:
* install the
sysstat packages in advance:
sudo apt-get install sosreport sysstat
* Activate 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, as soon as possible, we collect the archive:
sudo sosreport -a
We transfer the collected archive for analysis, for example, through the technical support forum .
