Description Eric Sandeen 2016-02-22 14:56:35 EST
I sent some patches upstream to fix up the modbus collectd plugin and have been using it with success.  Could you please consider enabling it (possibly in EPEL7 as well?)

%package modbus
Summary:       Modbus plugin for collectd
Group:         System Environment/Daemons
Requires:      collectd = %{version}-%{release}
BuildRequires: libmodbus-devel

%description modbus
This plugin connects to a Modbus "slave" via Modbus/TCP or Modbus/RTU
and reads register values.


%files modbus

Comment 1 Eric Sandeen 2016-02-22 14:59:05 EST
To be clear, those patches made it upstream some time ago, not asking for any additional patches, just enabling the plugin (remove --disable-modbus too of course).

Comment 2 Eric Sandeen 2016-02-22 15:05:25 EST
Hm, libmodbus isn't in EPEL7 so that's another small hurdle.  I'll request it.
Comment 3 Ruben Kerkhof 2016-02-23 05:05:38 EST
Hey Eric,

Indeed, I didn't enable it because EPEL7 doesn't have libmodbus.
As soon as it is in, let me know and I'll update collectd.
Comment 4 Eric Sandeen 2016-02-23 10:47:57 EST
Great, thanks, I may own libmodbus in epel7 myself, just sorting that all out.
Apologies if it was already on in fedora and I just forgot to check.  Thanks for straightening me out.  ;)
Comment 5 Ruben Kerkhof 2016-02-24 09:14:04 EST
Heh, no problem. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.
Love how you are monitoring your boiler with Collectd btw :)
Comment 6 Eric Sandeen 2016-02-26 18:06:21 EST
I'm building libmodbus for epel7 now.

It'd be great to include that modbus debug patch as well, if you think of it :)

Comment 7 Ruben Kerkhof 2016-02-27 07:24:00 EST
Sure, will do!
Comment 8 Eric Sandeen 2016-03-14 00:01:03 EDT
