Sorry! It got missed out earlier!

IMO, sos-report is still a good way to collect the summary of system state
while debugging GlusterFS issues.

Gluster Plugin in sos takes statedump, and collects log files, which is

There was a proposal for keeping the sos plugin within glusterfs repo, and
install it at right place when glusterfs package gets installed (if
sosreport is already installed).

That way, we would be keeping it up-to-date with code. I will check if
there are any bugs for it, and see what we can do about this.
