Description Ian Donaldson 2012-03-20 01:15:36 EDT
Description of problem:

rstatd/rusersd won't stay up for more than about 2 minutes, then systemd kills it

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. systemctl start rstatd.service
2. note this doesn't return for 2 minutes; note rstatd runs for 2 minutes
3. note rstatd is no longer running after 2 minutes

repeat for rusersd; same deal

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

/lib/systemd/system/rstatd.service has been configured with the
PIDFile=/var/run/rstatd.pid  parameter, telling systemd to expect a pid
file when rstatd is happy.

However rstatd never writes a pid file, so systemd kills it after 2 minutes.

Same deal with rusersd.

In prior Fedora releases, the /etc/init.d/rstatd script did a 'touch
/var/run/rstatd.pid' for completeness.  Similar with rusersd.

The fix is to remove the PIDFile arg from /lib/systemd/system/rstatd.service,
or to modify rstatd source to get it to write a pid file.

Similar with rusersd.
