Description of problem:
ifmonitor is a very simple MySQL + PHP bandwidth monitor for Linux
hosts. A simple C daemon stores your bandwidth usage in a MySQL
table, and the bandwidth data can be viewed with a simple PHP web
ifmonitor fails to insert data into mysql-3.23.56-1.9 from RH9 Errata
and mysql-3.23.58-4 from FC1. The original mysql-3.23.54a-11 from RH9
stock works fine with ifmonitor. Posting here to make sure this isn't
an upstream problem.
The upstream author does not have any Red Hat boxes or time so he
cannot look at the problem. Any ideas?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure ifmonitor.
2. Enable it.
Fails to insert data into mysql table with mysql-server from RH9
errata and FC1, however works fine with RH9 stock mysql-server.
Should still work.
Your going to have to give me a little more to go on. I can insert
data into MySQL using PHP with the current version. Have you tried
inserting data into your database just using PHP?
Other uses of mysql work. I am just perplexed as to why ifmonitor's
tiny C daemon fails to INSERT data after upgrading to RH9's errata
mysql-server, or FC1's mysql-server. After a downgrade back to RH9
stock mysql-server, it works again. Some behavior changed.
What does the mysql_query() call in save_values() (save.c) return when
the insert fails?
Sorry, suddenly it works with the latest mysql errata. I don't
understand what happened, but I'm not complaining.
