Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 737649
smolt enhancement request -
Last modified: 2012-08-16 12:37:27 EDT
Description of problem:
1 - Add pub-ID to /etc/smolt.
I want to submit hw-uuid as part of distributed performance testing of perl,
so that different results files, created over months, can be tied together
as coming from the same platform. The private hw-uuid will work for this,
but the pub-id would be better, as it lets others see the profiles.
in /usr/share/smolt/client/config.py, I see:
PUB_UUID = "/etc/smolt/pub-uuid"
but I dont have the file..
2 - Add a 2nd hw-id, that changes when memory or disk is added.
If hw-uuid (or pub-id) is static (after generated by firstboot), it would
mean that performance test results from before/after an upgrade may be
compared, erroneously. If the ID is really a "checksum" of the collected profile, then this is moot.
3 - 2 doc dirs, probably 1 would suffice
/usr/share/smolt/doc with PrivacyPolicy
/usr/share/doc/smolt-188.8.131.52 with same, and others.
Could you also clarify what IDs are tied to what profiles,
and/or how profiles change (new hardware added, inc USB devices) ?
Also, README says:
It and the client could very easily be
modified to be used as an inventory system for an enterprise environment.
Anyone interested in doing this please contact me.
No contact is provided, so Im using bugzilla.
(this isnt quite the same subject as inventory anyway)
Are other distros providing or using smolt ?
Saying so would help, esp for my purpose.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
