In the unfortunate event that bugs are discovered, they should be reported to the appropriate bug tracker. If you obtained the software from a 3rd party operating system vendor, it is often wise to use their own bug tracker for reporting problems. In all other cases use the master OpenStack bug tracker, available at:

Troubleshooting

When errors occure, these are good places to check:

  • freezer-api log: $HOME/log/freezer-api.log
    /var/log/apache2/freezer-api.log
  • freezer-agent log: $HOME/.freezer/freezer.log
  • freezer-scheduler log:/var/log/freezer/scheduler.log

Any new code must follow the development guidelines detailed in the HACKING.rst file and OpenStack general development guidelines, and pass all unit tests.
