Description Jeff Raber 2014-07-22 16:53:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Try to connect to smokeping site.
And error is displayed in the browser.

Switching to Permissive mode makes the smokeping site work.
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl from 'getattr' accesses on the sock_file /dev/log.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that perl should be allowed getattr access on the log sock_file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep smokeping.fcgi /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
