Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449095
include impending systemtap network client in default installation
Last modified: 2011-11-02 17:36:33 EDT
The version of systemtap incoming for RHEL5.3 is going to have a
client/server feature that allows relatively "naked" machines
(those without an installed compiler, debuginfo, ...) to use a
a systemtap server on their local network to transparently
build systemtap modules for them. Since this client will be very
small (a few kilobytes, no new dependencies AFAIK), and would
open up useful diagnostic capabilities, we should just install
it by default.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
