Description Robert Scheck 2013-10-04 17:29:55 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_pgsql has no access to /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432
due to the SELinux policy.

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, just set up Nagios with check_pgsql to access PostgreSQL via
socket. Nagios check is simply containing:

  command_line    $USER1$/check_pgsql -l $ARG1$ -d $ARG2$

where '$ARG1$' is 'postgres' and '$ARG2$' is 'template1'. This of course is
requiring PostgreSQL to be configured accordingly.

Actual results:
/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_pgsql has no access to /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432

Expected results:
/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_pgsql has access to /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432

Additional info:
allow nagios_t postgresql_tmp_t:sock_file write;
allow nagios_t postgresql_t:unix_stream_socket connectto;
allow nagios_services_plugin_t postgresql_tmp_t:sock_file write;
allow nagios_services_plugin_t postgresql_t:unix_stream_socket connectto;

Comment 9 Robert Scheck 2014-10-17 12:59:41 EDT
I am sorry, I disagree: selinux-policy-3.7.19-260.el6.noarch together with
nagios-plugins-pgsql-1.4.16-10.el6.x86_64 lead to:
