Description of problem:
After log rotation, the files:
becomes unreadable to munin agent (I guess nobody):
- permissions: 640
- owner: munin
- group adm
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every log rotation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. every rotation of munin logs
[root@www ~]# ll /var/log/munin/
-rw-r----- 1 munin adm 336359 Dec 31 08:30 munin-graph.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 munin munin 197073 Dec 30 03:08 munin-graph.log-20111230.gz
-rw-r----- 1 munin adm 15440 Dec 31 08:30 munin-html.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 munin munin 6574 Dec 30 03:08 munin-html.log-20111230.gz
-rw-r----- 1 munin adm 11328 Dec 31 08:30 munin-limits.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 munin munin 4091 Dec 30 03:08 munin-limits.log-20111230.gz
-rw-r----- 1 root root 5075 Dec 31 08:30 munin-node.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12464 Dec 30 03:08 munin-node.log-20111230.gz
-rw-r----- 1 munin adm 15930 Dec 31 08:30 munin-update.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 munin munin 34509 Dec 30 03:08 munin-update.log-20111230.gz
better keep them property of munin:munin with 644 permissions
Is there an error or issue thats caused by these permissions?
I wouldn't expect they would need to be read by the munin group after they have been rotated...
That said, happy to adjust if there is an actual issue.
there is a problem with the munin plugin itself (the plugin that generates reports on munin performance) it will be denied from reading the log while that's what it needs.
