Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2004-02-20 17:10:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
section "2.12. Configuring syslogd Event Logging" of our cluster docs
do describe cluster logging.

we really should not tell users to modify existing files, but rather
have them use /etc/logrotate.d

Yes, it will happen that syslog is restarted twice in short succession
if both the cluster logs and what is defined in
/etc/logrotate.d/syslog need rotating in one logrotate run, but IMHO
that is acceptable.

filing this against the software and not the docs as I think we really
should just drop in the file when the rpm installs. Shame we have no
/etc/syslog.d to drop the "logging to /var/log/cluster"-lines into.

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

How reproducible:

Actual Results:  telling the reader to modify a file from the
logrotate RPM

Expected Results:  telling the user to do it the clean way by dropping
a file in /etc/syslog.d

Additional info:

[root@dl380g2-bottom logrotate.d]# cat cluster
/var/log/cluster {
       /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslogd.pid 2> /dev/null` 2>
       /dev/null || true

This is not getting fixed Red Hat Cluster Suite 3 at this point.
