Bug Report Template
A bug report in Nova should come pretty close to this:
Description =========== Some prose which explains more in detail what this bug report is about. If the headline of this report is descriptive enough, skip this section. Steps to reproduce ================== A chronological list of steps which will bring off the issue you noticed: * I did X * then I did Y * then I did Z A list of openstack client commands would be the most descriptive example. Expected result =============== After the execution of the steps above, what should have happened if the issue wasn't present? Actual result ============= What happened instead of the expected result? How did the issue look like? Environment =========== 1. Exact version of OpenStack you are running. See the following list for all releases: http://docs.openstack.org/releases/ If this is from a distro please provide $ dpkg -l | grep <projectname> or $ rpm -ql | grep <projectname> If this is from git, please provide $ git log -1 2. Which storage type did you use? (For example: Ceph, LVM, GPFS, ...) 3. Which networking type did you use? (For example: nova-network, Neutron with OpenVSwitch, ...) Logs & Configs ============== The tool *sosreport* has support for some OpenStack projects. It's worth having a look at it. For example, if you want to collect the logs of a compute node you would execute: $ sudo sosreport -o openstack_nova --batch on that compute node. Attach the logs to this bug report.
