Description Herbert Gasiorowski 2001-09-05 09:46:09 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686)

Description of problem:
using rpc_rstat_3 call allways 0 outgoing packets are reported,
with rpc_rstat_1 call a number much too high is returned

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use rpc.rstatd to report outgoing packets of a hosts

Expected Results:  the sum of transmitted packets from /proc/net/dev should
be returned

Additional info:

I think there is an error in rpc.rstatd/rstat_proc.c:
the three structures for the different rstat calls are packed into a
c "union" and thus the if_opackets field of version 1 (struct stats) is
overwriten by the field v_swtch (struct statstime).

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2002-01-17 09:21:01 EST
Fixed correctly. Using a struct instead of a union separates the 3 different
structs for data storage and so they won't get overwritten anymore.

Package rusers-0.17-14 should appear in rawhide soon.

Read ya, Phil
