Description Tom Fonteyne 2012-03-19 11:52:02 EDT
Description of problem:

64 bit Windows systems will be reported as being "Win32"

This is because 
   org/​ rhq/​ core/​ system/​ NativeSystemInfo.java 
report the string "as-is" from the native Sigar library

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start an agent in 64 bit JDK on a 64 bit Windows and let it discover the platform.
2. Import it in the JON server, and look at the details of the OS.
Actual results:


Expected results:

Windows Server 2008 R2   (or similar for other Windows versions of course)

Additional info:

This is easy to fix by always reading the OS version from Java and NOT from Sigar.

org/​ rhq/​ core/​ system/​ NativeSystemInfo.java:

106     public String getOperatingSystemName() {
107         return OperatingSystem.getInstance().getName();
108     }

should be changed to (line numbers from JavaSystemInfo.java):

098     public String getOperatingSystemName() {
099         return System.getProperty("os.name");
100     }

It is debatable, but advisable to do the same for other calls in this class where Java is delivering a "good" result. Examples would be:

and likely more.

Verified on version : 3.2.0.ER5 build Number :2cb2bc9:225c796
The OS name now shows "Windows" and Architecture value "x64" in details view and on monitoring->traits tab.
