Description of problem:

There's some ERROR about collectd...

In /var/log/ovirt.log:
2014-01-23 13:08:38,952 - INFO - collectd - Attempting to locate remote collectd server...

# chkconfig --list | grep collect
collectd        0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# cat /etc/ovirt-node-iso-release 
oVirt Node Hypervisor release 3.0.3 (0.999.201401221941draft.el6)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install, check ovirt.log for ERROR about collectd

Actual results:
ERROR but why????

Expected results:
if collectd is optional, skip it. ERROR level is real problem and it seems we don't have real functional problem but something is not used/configured. FATAL|ERROR alerts are those which should highlight interest of administrators...

Setting target release to current version for consideration and review. please
do not push non-RFE bugs to an undefined target release to make sure bugs are
reviewed for relevancy, fix, closure, etc.

Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-03-04 09:25:41 UTC
This is an automated message.
Re-targeting all non-blocker bugs still open on 3.4.0 to 3.4.1.

Comment 3 Joey Boggs 2014-04-10 16:16:31 UTC
This is an upstream Centos based node not RHEL. collectd does not ship in the RHEL version

From the logs:
Jan 23 13:05:48 localhost kernel: Linux version 2.6.32-431.3.1.el6.x86_64 (

Comment 4 Joey Boggs 2014-04-10 16:19:45 UTC
reopening, changing logging level, didnt realize this was filed under ovirt and not rhev-h

Comment 5 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-05-08 13:55:20 UTC
This is an automated message.

oVirt 3.4.1 has been released.
This issue has been retargeted to 3.5.0 since it has not been marked as high priority or severity issue, please retarget if needed.

Comment 6 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-10-17 12:40:29 UTC
