Description of problem:
The preferred method for SAF to monitor node connectivity is with the collectd-connectivity (collectd::plugin::connectivity::interfaces) plugin. See: https://redhat-service-assurance.github.io/saf-documentation/#appe-saf-collectd-plugins
However this plugin is not supported for deployment with OSP 13 director/tripleo.
As per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1754769#c7 this plugin will need code added to work in OSP 13 ("connectivity plugin in osp13 will probably require a rebase of puppet-collectd in osp13").
If we are to require/recommend this plugin for SAF then we need to support it for easy deployment on OSP with director.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
No method to deploy
Steps to Reproduce:
1. No way to deploy
collectd-connectivity is not able to be deployed.
A way to deploy and configure collectd-connectivity with tripleo.
Please note we also need to ensure we don't only fix the puppet but we include all the deployment logic into the triple templates. I am not sure if that requires another RFE.
Please advise and I can raise it.
Is this a duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1761699 ?
If this here is not asking for more than providing the necessary puppet capabilities to generate a configuration for collectd-connectivity (and the other NFVPE related plugins), then it is a duplicate. To me, this is a duplicate.
If you need more to be implemented here, please be more specific.
It is, puppet-collectd upstream definitely have connectivity plugin implemented.
