Description

Hello, I'm forwarding Debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=68862 :

""" Version: 2.8.9-1

I've added a new system to mrtg and got:

1st run:

finlandia:/var/lib/webspace/bin# mrtg /etc/mrtg.cfg Rateup WARNING: /usr/binrateup could not read the primary log file for rakastava.eth1 Rateup WARNING: /usr/binrateup The backup log file for rakastava.eth1 was invalid as well Rateup WARNING: /usr/binrateup Can't remove rakastava.eth1.old updating log file Rateup WARNING: /usr/binrateup Can't rename rakastava.eth1.log to rakastava.eth1.old updating log file

2nd run:

finlandia:/var/lib/webspace/bin# mrtg /etc/mrtg.cfg Rateup WARNING: /usr/binrateup Can't remove rakastava.eth1.old updating log file

It's quite logical that these files did not exist before, since this system was added recently and no old data and logfiles were there.

Please kick these messages. """

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

the reason for these messages is, that there may be other reasons for the log file to not exist. Since mrtg rectifies the situation automatically, it should say something about it.
