Comment 2 Alan Pevec 2012-11-23 13:53:10 EST
ok, what about this plan:
f17 - 4.10.x
f18 - 5.1.x
f19 - 5.2.x
el6 - 4.10.x
el6 - new package collectd5 (don't know status, I'm not involved)
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2012-11-23 18:25:56 EST
Sounds fine to me... except perhaps we could get 5.2.x in f18 before release and have one less version to worry about. 

I don't know the collectd5 status off hand either. I've not had time to look at it.
Comment 4 Steve Traylen 2012-11-26 04:45:29 EST
Think there may be a small patch needed with the 5.2  packages.

The rrd module writes rrds to '/var/lib/collectd' where as the cgi
script looks for them in '/var/lib/collectd/rrd' . I suggest the latter
is more sensible.

Steve.

/etc/collectd.d/rrdtool.conf is generated in spec:
<Plugin rrdtool>
       DataDir "/var/lib/collectd/rrd"
       CacheTimeout 120
       CacheFlush   900
</Plugin>

Are you saying this doesn't have an effect in 5.2 ?

ok,  collectd seems stable enough, although in general .0 are best to be avoided :)
It does bump libcollectdclient.so.1 but I don't think any other package links to it.

Apologies, my mistake, I was overriding the default configuration.

I could not reproduce this, so I'll go ahead and update f18 to 5.2.0
