After some discussion on the Eucalyptus Community Mailing list, I'm happy to annouce I've had a crack at a python based plugin for sosreport.

Sosreport is a cool support data collection utility written in python and availble for RHEL/CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu & Debian. It can collect lots of useful system files and stats that you might use to debug a server or send to a support organisation to help you.

I've packaged up my plugin for review by the community before I submit upstream to the sosreport project.

You can install and run it from a RHEL/CentOS 6 system like so:

$ yum install
$ source ~/path/to/your/eucarc 
$ sosreport

This should produce a tarball in /tmp that also contains useful Eucalyptus command output.

Please test it and let me know what you think, suggestions & patches welcome!
