Description Charles Crouch 2012-10-25 14:17:43 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #869730 +++

Description of problem:
Agent loads the Sigar library with nonative flag activated. This leads to errors agent startup failure in cases where the Sigar library is not compatible with the operating system.

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a system that is not compatible with Sigar (eg. SUSE 10.1)
2. Run the agent with --nonative flag
3. Notice error
Actual results:
Failure to start with the following error:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGFPE (0x8) at pc=0x00002b592b3d668f, pid=13696, tid=1074792768
# JRE version: 7.0_07-b10
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (23.3-b01 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C  [ld-linux-x86-64.so.2+0x868f]  do_lookup_x+0xcf
# Failed to write core dump. Core dumps have been disabled. To enable core dumping, try "ulimit -c unlimited" before starting Java again

Expected results:
The agent starts without Sigar loaded

Additional info:
This issue has been observed on Suse 10.x 64bit. This version of Suse is running an older glibc library (2.4.x) that should be compatible with Sigar but it is throwing SIGPFE excetion at startup. 

The main problem is that --nonative flag is not working properly as it should have prevented the loading of Sigar jars completely.

checked under Suse 11 (latest) and rhel 4 - no exceptions in agent.log, agent discovered and active in server gui.
