Add the ability to generate a support file
Closed, DuplicatePublicFEATURE REQUEST


I've seen other vendors implement this.
A single command to generate a file containing logs, hardware configuration and status (e.g. interface error counts etc) and configured settings (sanitised of course)

Thought it might be helpful if a standard file format could be generated - saves back and forwards checking various things.


Difficulty level
Unknown (require assessment)
Why the issue appeared?
Will be filled on close
Is it a breaking change?
Unspecified (possibly destroys the router)

Event Timeline

VyOS is still on the ancient shell-based diagnostic file generator spaghetti inherited from Vyatta. First of all, I'm going to dike out {show,generate} tech-support from vyatta-op and write a rudimentary stub as a replacement in Python/XML. Then we'll need to discuss what exactly needs to go in there.
