Description Charles Duffy 2011-03-02 13:25:01 EST
Description of problem:

collectd-postgresql expects postgresql_default.conf to be installed in the /usr/share/collectd/ directory, from which its contents are unconditionally loaded in addition to any user-specified queries.

Instead, this file is installed under the %docdir, causing collectd-postgresql to fail at runtime.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Install collectd-postgresql.conf

  2. Define a config file which makes use of this plugin. For instance:

LoadPlugin "postgresql"
<Plugin "postgresql">
  <Database "mydb">
    Service "mydb"

(the above presuming a "mydb" service present in /etc/pg_service.conf)
Actual results:

  The collectd-postgresql plugin fails to load with the following errors:

  postgresql: Failed to read default config (/usr/share/collectd/postgresql_default.conf).
  postgresql: Default config (/usr/share/collectd/postgresql_default.conf) did not define any queries - please check your installation.

Expected results:

  collectd will run its default set of queries against PostgreSQL's internal statistics tables.
