Description Anthony Zone 2021-04-28 19:04:33 UTC
Description of problem:
In RHEL 7 it was noticed that sysstat was forcing mounts of automounts whenever it ran.  This was resolved with BZ1670060:


It seems that this fix was never applied to the RHEL 8 sysstat as I don't see the code change here and I have a customer that has sysstat remounting their autofs.

The upstream code for this was in sysstat v12.5.3 but RHEL 8.3 is on 11.7.3-5 so it looks like we might have missed it.  Upstream code:


There was also a BZ around the fix which would lead to a crash due to this fix and that BZ is here:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

    RHEL 8.3 sysstat-11.7.3-5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

    1. Set up autofs
    2. Run sysstat
    3. sysstat will force a mount of autofs

Actual results:

    sysstat will force a mount of autofs

Expected results:

    sysstat skips over autofs mounts

Added regression flag, as customers upgrading to RHEL 8 are seeing this issue re-introduced into their RHEL environments.
