munin-node reports no traffic data (if_/if_err_)

Reported by: falstaff <stefan@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: muninlite Cc:


Using Backfire (10.03.1-RC5, r27608) on a Netgear WDRN3700v2 the package muninlite seems not to report if_/if_err_ data when the interface name includes a hyphon (e.g. pppoe-wan). I just get NaN values on the graphs. I'm using a default munin server.

When I try to get the data manually, one can see that something is wrong:

telnet localhost 4949
# munin node at netgear
cpu if_eth0 if_eth1 if_eth0VLAN1 if_br_lan if_wlan0 if_wlan1 if_pppoe_wan if_err_eth0 if_err_eth1 if_err_eth0VLAN1 if_err_br_lan if_err_wlan0 if_err_wlan1 if_err_pppoe_wan load memory processes uptime interrupts irqstats
fetch if_pppoe_wan

It looks like the plugin renames the interfaces, but don't take account to the renamed device when fetching the data.

I have a different patch here. Instead of renaming the interface twice, I only use the de-hyphened name to create the function name. I have also added "pptp" in the list of potential interfaces.

The bug is still present in AA, and the patch still works.
