[Xymon] Updated EL6 package (was Re: bug in xymon-client-4.3.22-2.el6.x86_64)

I am not sure that netstat was the problem.

I hadn't noticed it either until I looked.

I everything compiled myself and I see in the xymonclient-linux.sh that is seems to be using the correct syntax.

echo "[ports]"
# Bug in RedHat's netstat spews annoying error messages.
netstat -antu 2>/dev/null

The clientlog show the ports section properly populated but the rrd graphs have now stopped updating since friday when I updated. The ports column is correct. It reports the count and displays the connection but the graph is missing here also.

Has anyone else seen that?

Seems to be working again from my view!

I'll let Scot confirm as well though, since he reported the bug.

Thanks J.C.!

Oy. Thanks. Confirmed that this is a bug in the EL6 packages (only). EL3, EL4, and EL5 are properly excluded, but for some reason I seemed to think that EL6 supported "-W" in netstat.

I've uploaded RPMs for 4.3.22-3 to http://terabithia.org/rpms/xymon/testing/el6/ for both x86_64 and i686, which should fix the issue.

Upon confirmation, I can move these to production.

Just checked the client log for a machine that I've put the new xymon-client RPM on and the [ports] section is blank.

Hi JC,

In the just released RPM for 4.3.22, the xymon client for Linux ports command was changed to netstat -antuW.  The "W" option is invalid for RHEL6 and causes the ports output to be missing.
