• Collecting logs for Arista TAC cases using logGrab

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

logGrab is a simple bash script that builds a time/date stamped archive containing a number of log items commonly requested when raising a TAC case. It is designed to simplify the process of collecting data from multiple sources within EOS and packing them into a single file for easy upload.

The script can be easily extended/adapted and may be integrated easily with other EOS features such as the CLI scheduler and Advanced Event Manager.

# logGrab - Automatic Log Collector v0.3

LOGNAME=logGrab-$HOSTNAME-$(date +%Y-%m-%d.%H%M%S)
mkdir /mnt/flash/$LOGNAME
cd /mnt/flash/$LOGNAME
ls -alR /persist/sys > persist-sys-contents
ls -alR /mnt/flash > flash-contents
ls -alR /var/log/agents > agent-contents
ls -alR /var/core > core-contents
df > disk-utilization
cp /mnt/flash/*config .
cp -r /var/log/agents .
cp -r /var/core .
cp -r /mnt/flash/schedule/tech-support .
sudo cp /var/log/messages .
Cli -p15 -c "show tech" > ./show-tech
Cli -p15 -c "show tech ribd" > ./show-tech-ribd
cd /mnt/flash
zip -r $LOGNAME.zip $LOGNAME

logGrab generates a ZIP archive named by the host and time of execution:

[admin@Arista flash]$ ls -l
 total 922100
 drwxrwx--- 6 root eosadmin      4096 Feb 17 16:17 .
 drwxr-xr-x 3 root root           100 Feb 17 14:59 ..
 -rwxrwx--- 1 root eosadmin       427 Feb 17 16:16 logGrab
 -rwxrwx--- 1 root eosadmin     82583 Feb 17 16:17 logGrab-7050S-64-2012-02-17.161638.zip
