crm_report − Part of the Pacemaker cluster resource manager


crm_report [options] [DEST]


crm_report − Create archive of everything needed when reporting cluster problems

Required option:
, −−from TIME

time prior to problems beginning (as "YYYY−M−D H:M:S" including the quotes)



increase verbosity (may be specified multiple times)

−h, −−help

display this message

−v, −−version

display software version


display software features

−t, −−to TIME

time at which all problems were resolved (as "YYYY−M−D H:M:S" including the quotes; default "now")

−T, −−cts TEST

CTS test or set of tests to extract


CTS master logfile

−n, −−nodes NODES

node names for this cluster (only needed if cluster is not active on this host; accepts −n "a b" or −n a −n b)


do not search for cluster logs

−l, −−logfile FILE

log file to collect (in addition to detected logs if −M is not specified; may be specified multiple times)


additional regular expression to match variables to be masked in output (default: "passw.*")


additional regular expression to match in log files for analysis (default: CRIT: ERROR:)

−S, −−single−node

don’t attempt to collect data from other nodes

−c, −−cluster TYPE

force the cluster type instead of detecting (currently only corosync is supported)

−C, −−corosync

force the cluster type to be corosync

−u, −−user USER

username to use when collecting data from other nodes (default root)

−D, −−max−depth

search depth to use when attempting to locate files

−e, −−rsh

command to use to run commands on other nodes (default ssh −T)

−d, −−as−directory

leave result as a directory tree instead of archiving


use defaults suitable for being called by sosreport tool (behavior subject to change and not useful to end users)

DEST, −−dest DEST

custom destination directory or file name

crm_report works best when run from a cluster node on a running cluster, but can be run from a stopped cluster node or a Pacemaker Remote node.

If neither −−nodes nor −−single−node is given, crm_report will guess the node list, but may have trouble detecting Pacemaker Remote nodes. Unless −−single−node is given, the node names (whether specified by −−nodes or detected automatically) must be resolvable and reachable via the command specified by −e/−−rsh using the user specified by −u/−−user.
