Description of problem:
Once a user sets up a metrics store (bug 1405812), and configures the engine to use them (bug 1405809), a cron job should automatically configure engine to send metrics to this store. Current plan is to do this using ansible by enhancing:
Please provide configuration files for the engine machine.
Can't see in  anything for postgresql.
I guess we also do not need statsd conf, and if we want to have a common subset for both engine and hosts, also perhaps move most of builtins-conf-for-ovirt.conf.j2 to a common file and keep there only host-specific stuff.
Similarly for fluentd ovirt_host/templates/ovirt-processing.conf.

Also virt plugin is not relevant.

It is possible to have to have a common file and have separate host and engine specific file. But need to keep in mind that in Fluentd the order is important.
I think we should keep it simple for now and later improve it.

The engine config files are at
They do not include postgresql plugin yet. But you can use them.
as discussed in private thread, this need automatic population of config for postgres plugin, waiting for new patch, moving back to ASSIGNED
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.

"Yaniv Kaul 2017-04-02 03:45:02 EDT
Target Milestone: ovirt-4.1.1-1 → ovirt-4.1.2"
as this was verified 4.1.1-1 can we re-target to 4.1.1-1 thus comment#5 will be obsolete and we can re-add and track it there
rest of the engine bugs are tracked here - BZ#1429861 and BZ#1429875 are scheduled for 4.1.2
