Newest version up https://github.com/boardstretcher/ldebug

Added networking and firewall sections.

What I would like is a bash obfuscator function (maybe sed based) for networking information. If the IP address is private (e.g 10.x, 172.x, 192.x) then leave it alone. No problem. If the IP address is non-private then obfuscate with an identifier (IP-ADDRESS-01, IP-ADDRESS-02) so if we had to read the routes/interfaces, it would make sense while not damaging privacy.

Ideas?

*LOVE* your idea of contributing LQdebug, for posters to collect 'essential' info.
Trying it on Void7.1 VBox (XP netbook host). cf myBlog VBox Networking

sh ldebug.sh (skipped chmod; thinking -vx). Oh I see: (make EXAMPLE -n [?])


-n Works great! A bit overly-verbose. *Does it work if no `ip` cmd eg Vector?
-s Ditto. Summary?: lsblk -fp;df -Th `mount|grep ^/|cut -f1 -d' '` ; -l ok/none
-f OOOPS! I don't have: systemctl service firewall-cmd iptables! I need -f! ufw?
-g ok but I'd suggest more: maybe: #procs; top; ...TBD. inxi? No: +X11=+100MB!
-H ok. I don't have lsusb; rare issue. Is lsmod 'that' useful? lspci -k ?

AntiX-16core wget wouldn't work without: --no-check-certificate
2nd IPTABLES ### worked, but 1st said: iptables: unrecognized service
-l: all 4 cmds not found.

-p pkg mgr TBD! -i? info on which type of init 'system'? &configs/services? (runlevel n/a?)

I can try other distros if you PM me. I'll *edit*in updates to this post, so as not to clutter thread. (suse; Manjaro=arch? Mandriva? bsd? puppy? android? tc/dsl? gentoo? 4M? LFS?

Again, a zillion 'kudos' for this work!!!

Ideas?
firewall output may be "sensitive"?
firewalld required for iptables-type 'dump'?
"systemctl: not found", so systemd?
Code:
cat /proc/1/comm
Lemme spin up another "recent" VM and dork around.
Most of my assets are Virtual and very few actual systems. Well, that is what I 'do'.
#IhazVariants

Good work.

As I've been writing this, in Centos 7, I've wondered often if it would be best to stick to /proc/ directory output rather than relying on tools that might or might not be available in non-Rhel/Debian distributions.

Line 52 in your code should be changed from
Code:
ouput LSBLK
to
Code:
output LSBLK
On a side note, love this script!!

Thanks for that lazydog. Fixed.

I have written an obfuscation function for ip related information:

Code:
obfuscate(){
        local tmp=$(mktemp /tmp/ldebug-obf.XXXXX)
        local ips
        local uniqips
        local count=0

        printf "%s" "$1" > $tmp

        ips=$(printf "%s" "$1" | grep -o '[0-9]*\.[0-9]*\.[0-9]*\.[0-9]*')
        uniqips=$(printf "%s \n" "$ips" | sort | uniq)

        printf "%s" "$uniqips" | while IFS=" " read -r ip; do
                sed -i "s/$ip/IP-ADD-0$count/g" $tmp
                ((count++))
        done

        cat "$tmp"
        rm -f "$tmp"
}
If you want to see it work without using the ldebug.sh script, copy and paste the function into (centos 7) bash and run:

Code:
output=$(ip a); obfuscate "$output"
Any suggestions?

I just run this script on my gentoo system and everything worked except the firewall calls as i'm not running systemctl or firewalld on this system.

Code:
# ./ldebug -fZ
./ldebug: line 97: systemctl: command not found
./ldebug: line 100: systemctl: command not found
./ldebug: line 101: firewall-cmd: command not found
./ldebug: line 105: firewall-cmd: command not found
Maybe if you could run some sort of check for this before looking for the firewall setup so that the correct commands are run.

I've been knocked a loop by something's that going 'round in these parts.

I hope to be sentient soon.

Lazydog:

1) Not going to check for commands. You can infer a lot from missing commands. Its good information.
2) I mentioned that I am writing this in Centos. Not gentoo. If you want a command added that you think would help, offer it up, or create a pull request on github.

Requesting specific help with the script here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...49#post5651349

Since this thread has grown beyond the original question. Thank you for your interest in this pet project. PLEASE think about contributing your expertise to the script on Github. It would be great to have a few LQ members that are interested in the project actually team up on Github to help.

I've got to a great start, anyone can contribute via pull requests. Look forward to your input.

Change IPTABLES STATUS to IPTABLES_STATUS (4 of these), because output takes only 1 (1st) %s.

I just realized how this can be used by someone with no internet working
and/or minimal experience (no wget), wondering 'what debug-info to post?':
simply the link to the source can be given, as a research suggestion!
"Spend a few minutes looking at the get_...() functions here; web-search: man <cmd>"
