Description Shruti Sampat 2017-01-26 16:57:11 UTC
Description of problem:

RHLog (Red Hat Logging) is a product that is meant to be a place for other products to share common logging packages from. RHLog needs rrdtool-perl, which is currently shipped only to the rhel-7-server-optional-rpms repo. Content shipped to rhel-optional repos is unsupported, as per [1]. Consequently, other products like OpenShift, OpenStack, RHV etc. that consume content from RHLog will need to ship rrdtool-perl into their respective repos. 

Kindly offer the rrdtool-perl package in supported base RHEL repos.

Comment 1 Shruti Sampat 2017-01-26 16:59:48 UTC
Siddharth Nagar, please consider this request to ship rrdtool-perl in supported base RHEL repo.

Comment 2 Lon Hohberger 2017-01-26 18:37:46 UTC
This also affects OpenStack.

RH Logging is used by OpenStack Operational Tools

Re-considering for explicit addition.


Comment 8 Shruti Sampat 2017-02-06 07:54:47 UTC
Thank you, Lubos. Please note that rrdtool-perl in this case is an install dependency, and not a build dependency for rhlog packages.

Comment 9 Jan Stodola 2017-02-21 09:55:02 UTC
Lubos, will rrdtool-perl be added to all archs/variants?

Comment 10 Lubos Kocman 2017-02-21 13:31:47 UTC
Hello Shruti,

which are the variants/arches supported by RHLog? I was trying to search support matrix on product pages but failed.
I'd just meet these requirements and avoid extra inclusion if possible.



Comment 11 Shruti Sampat 2017-02-22 12:53:22 UTC
Hi Lubos, I have reached out to Richard Megginson for this information and will update this BZ once I have it. Thanks!

Comment 12 Shruti Sampat 2017-02-24 12:07:53 UTC
Hi Lubos, this needs to be added to Server variant and x86_64 and ppc64le arches. Thanks!
