Last Updated: Mar 13, 2018 11:09AM PDT


One of the most important tasks you will be asked to perform when contacting the Fusion-io Support Team is to generate fio-bugreport output that the Support team can use to analyze and diagnose product issues and errors. By generating this output and sending this output file to Fusion-io Technical Support, the Support team can quickly review errors and issues and work with you to fix these issues so your Fusion device operates properly. This output file can be generated on all supported platforms, and the steps are listed in the sections below.

Generating fio-bugreport Output Using Windows

If you are using Windows and need to generate fio-bugreport output for Fusion-io Support, perform the steps listed in the table below:

Step 1: 

Open a Command Prompt as Administrator. Depending on the Windows version, you may need to log in as Administrator or right-click and select Run as administrator. If you are running as Administrator, the command utility will not collect vital troubleshooting data that the Fusion-io Support needs to analyze and diagnose Fusion device issues.


Step 2: 

Make sure that the fio-bugreport command utility is in your command path. If the Fusion-io utilities are not in your path, search for fio-bugreport.exe to locate the utility.

Step 3: 

Execute the following command in your terminal window:



Step 4: 

The results are saved in the directory from which the command was run as a file named fio-bugreport-<date>.cab (the actual name will vary but will be displayed).


Generating fio-bugreport Output for non-Windows Platforms

If you are using Linux, VMware, or other non-Windows platforms, and need to generate fio-bugreport output for Fusion-io Support, perform the steps listed in the table below.

Step 1:

Ensure that you are logged in as root. Alternatively, you may be able to use sudo to run fio-bugreport as root.

Step 2:

Ensure the fio-bugreport command utility is in your command path. If the Fusion-io utilities are not already in your path, check the manual or alternatively, run the following command to locate the utility:
# find / -name fio-bugreport

Step 3:

Open a terminal window and execute the following command:
# fio-bugreport

The results are saved as a file named /tmp/fio-bugreport-<date>.tar.bz2 (the exact name will be displayed and may vary by platform).
