Description Lukas Krejci 2011-03-24 09:51:35 UTC
Description of problem:

It is impossible to find out the failures during getAvailability() of the apache server from the log files.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do not configure SNMP in the apache server
2. enter an invalid URL to the connection properties of the apache server resource
Actual results:
The availability goes down but there is no mention about the cause of that fact even on the debug level.

Expected results:
the availability goes down and the logs reveal the cause for that fact at least on the debug level.

Additional info:

Patch diff to add debug and warning logging for IOException and SSLException

Proposed patch which adds missing logging to availability check for ApacheServerComponent and ApacheVirtualHostServiceComponent.

Any connection time IOException gets logged at debug level.
Any connection time SSLException gets logged at warn level. This way, any certificate errors or invalid SSL communications (non SSL end-point, expired certificate, invalid certificate host, non trusted certificate, etc) can be seen as warnings instead of requiring debug level logging to see these types of configuration issues.

see if we can fix or at minimum document the workarounds somewhere

Now sure what this refers to. The fix is attached. There are no workarounds. If the connection to the HTTP URL provided by the Apache plug-in configuration fail, it happens completely silently. The only way to workaround the issue would be to install a network packet sniffer between the agent and the Apache instance and even then, that may not help if SSL is in use.

Verified on build#137 (Version: 4.1.0-SNAPSHOT Build Number: 7377e26)

Followed the steps and verified that the the availability of Apache resource goes down and the server log displays below at the debug level.

2011-06-15 18:15:14,681 DEBUG [org.rhq.enterprise.communications.command.client.ClientRemotePojoFactory] {ClientRemotePojoFactory.execution-failure}Failed to execute remote POJO method [updatePluginConfiguration]. Cause: org.rhq.core.clientapi.agent.discovery.InvalidPluginConfigurationClientException:Unable to connect to managed resource of type [Apache HTTP Server] using the specified connection properties. Failed to start component for resource Resource[id=10012, type=Apache HTTP Server, key=/etc/httpd||/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, name=suniltest.usersys.redhat.com:80, parent=suniltest, version=2.2.3]. -> org.rhq.core.util.exception.WrappedRemotingException:Value of 'url' connection property ('testtest') is not a valid URL.

Marking as verified.

Bulk closing of issues that were VERIFIED, had no target release and where the status changed more than a year ago.
