Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 999731
/etc/numad.conf is undocumented
Last modified: 2017-09-14 07:33:02 EDT
Description of problem:
the numad package includes /etc/numad.conf, but no documentation on same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Obviously, there are other issues with this program, it seems like it was quickly & dirtily released.
I see another bug showing that a logrotate config file will be added; it would be nice if there were a documented/standard way to have it re-open its log file (e.g., with a HUP).
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
It is currently possible to set only one variable in /etc/numad.conf and it's documented in the numad manpage.
If you have any other issues with numad, please, file them as separate bugzillas.
Hi Jan -
thanks for taking the time to respond.
I do not see any mention of numad.conf in the man page for numad.
[root@staging ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)
[root@staging ~]# rpm -q numad
[root@staging ~]# man numad | grep -i conf
[root@staging ~]# zgrep -i numad.conf /usr/share/man/man8/numad.8.gz
sorry for slow response, i don't look at the relevant email account very often.
