Description SEKINE Tatsuo 2003-03-19 09:29:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.1) Gecko/20021030 for
VineLinux 0vl6

Description of problem:
Xinetd equip load average-based resource limitation functionality.
But it is disabled by default.

Please add --with-loadavg configure option to the spec.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xinetd-2.3.10-4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/sbin/xinetd -version
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  xinetd Version 2.3.10 libwrap

Expected Results:  xinetd Version 2.3.10 libwrap loadavg

Additional info:

Disabling the functionality in configuration file is easy.
If you don't specify "max_load" attribute, the functionality is disabled.

Therefore, in the view of compatibility, 
enabling the functionality is no problem.

Comment 1 SEKINE Tatsuo 2003-03-24 03:18:49 UTC
I change status from RFE to BUG.
Because the man page of xinetd.conf refers the "max_load" capability without
(configure-)limitation, but RedHat's xinetd doesn't support it.
