Description Kazuo Moriwaka 2015-08-24 03:00:13 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/pcp/bin/pmwebd from 'read' accesses on the file meminfo.

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

If you believe that pmwebd should be allowed read access on the meminfo 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 pmwebd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
