Check Linux raid Nagios plugin fails to report recovery status of software RAID controller
Last modified: 2013-11-10 03:06:14 EST
Description of problem:
The check_linux_raid nagios command uses an incorrect regex to match the recovery pattern reported by /proc/mdstat. It looks for /recovery = (.*?)\s/ instead of /resync = (.*?)\s/.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install nagios-plugins-linux_raid
2. Setup Linux software RAID
3. Configure nagios plugin for software RAID device
4. Trigger RAID failure
Nagios fails to report RAID device is resync'ing
Nagios reports RAID device is resync'ing
Confirmed Fedora 11, nagios-plugins-linux_raid checks the /dev/mdstat device in the same manner, but could not confirm that /dev/mdstat still reports that the device is resync'ing as resync or recover.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
It seems that this bug still exists. I'll take care of it.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
