Updated rhevm-log-collector packages that fix several bugs are now available.
The rhevm-log-collector utility allows users to easily collect log files fromall systems in their Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment.The rhevm-log-collector packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.5.3,which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. Changes to the ovirt-engine-log-collector component:* Previously, the Log Collector tool created its archive in the base folder,which meant that it also archived the permissions of the current workingdirectory (‘.’). Consequently, extracting the Log Collector archive changed thepermissions of the directory in which the archive was extracted, resulting inunintended side effects on the system. Now, the structure has been changed tointroduce a top level directory, and users can extract the archive withoutaltering the directory permissions. Because extracting the archive now creates adirectory with all files under it, users can, for example, extract two differentLog Collector archives in the same directory, without those archivesoverlapping. (BZ#1171179)* A new SOS plug-in in SOS 3.2 allows the Log Collector tool to collectinformation about self-hosted engine environments, including information aboutthe hosted-engine setup and HA daemons. (BZ#1208113)* In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7, the SOS package was upgraded to 3.2.Consequently, the SOS 2 plug-ins used by Log Collector tool until Red HatEnterprise Linux 6.6.z conflicted with the SOS plug-ins included in SOS 3.2. Toavoid this, the Log Collector was split, and the conflicting SOS plug-ins weremoved to an optional sub-package; the sub-package can be installed if SOS 2 isrequired, or removed if SOS 3.2 is required. Now, the Log Collector can be usedwith SOS 2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 systems, and SOS 3.2 on Red HatEnterprise Linux 6.7 systems. (BZ#1210644)* The rhevm-log-collector package was upgraded to 3.5.3. (BZ#1218298)Users of rhevm-log-collector are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
