Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1261237
collectd swap-plugin reports blocks instead of bytes
Last modified: 2015-12-24 00:06:22 EST
Description of problem: the collectd swap plugin reports values as blocks vs. bytes; the problem was documented in upstream, including fixes, as issue #1062:
The fix has been merged into the upstream 5.5 milestone; current 5.5.x packages appear to be (correctly) using the 5.5.0 release target (ffc3836).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): collectd-5.5.0-2.el7
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
2. enable swap plugin
collected values are reported in blocks
collected values are reported in bytes
See also https://github.com/collectd/collectd/pull/1071 for the patch
So, I take it you would prefer we push an update with this now rather than wait for another upstream release?
Upstream should have 5.5.1 in a matter of weeks, last I heard.
An update would be ideal - we have a workaround (downgrade) in the meantime
