Description Duncan Innes 2015-02-16 16:38:37 UTC
Description of problem: systemd-journal-upload not saving state

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): systemd-216-20.fc21.x86_64

How reproducible: Every time so far

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure /etc/systemd/system/systemd-journal-upload.service.d/system-journal-upload.conf to export logs to --url=http://localhost
(as noted in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1193143, the User is also set to root in this file)
2. Set up service to listen on port 19532 and export to local file
3. systemctl daemon-reload
4. systemctl start systemd-journal-upload.service
5. Wait until backlog of journald has been received by port 19532 and written to file
6. Stop systemd-journal-upload process
7. systemctl start systemd-journal-upload.service

Actual results: journald backlog is written to --url location again.  No state file can be found in the default location

Expected results: State file (in default location) to save latest log record sent via s-j-upload.  Restarting s-j-upload should only upload new log entries to the --url location.

Additional info:  I have tried specifying my own --save-state file in my /etc/systemd/system/systemd-journal-upload.service.d/system-journal-upload.conf file, but this makes no difference.
