The supportconfig utility is used by support teams to collect all information needed to troubleshoot a system in one shot.
The objective of this project is to create a central repository of supportconfig tarballs. To do so, we're going to develop a set of tools to automatically fetch tarballs from known sources, parse the information, import the useful parts into an SQL database and expose it in a Web front-end where users can run some simple queries.
The following components will be developed:
- Collector: Retrieves supportconfigs from the usual sources (Bugzilla, ftp.novell.com).
- Parser: Parses the data from a supportconfig tarball and imports it into a database.
- Front-end: Displays the collected data in useful formats, generate statistics and allow simple queries.
