Using xsos to summarise System Information


The goal of xsos is to make it easy to instantaneously gather information about a system together in an easy-to-read-summary, whether that system is the localhost on which xsos is being run or a system for which you have an unpacked sosreport.

xsos will attempt to make it easy, parsing and calculating and formatting data from dozens of files (and commands) to give you a detailed overview about a system.
