4.258. qpid-qmf

Updated qpid-qmf packages that fix a bug and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The qpid-qmf package provides an extensible management framework layered on Qpid messaging.
The qpid-qmf package has been upgraded to upstream version 0.12, which provides a number of enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#706990)

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, when "RequestContext._complete" was invoked, it would clear the Agent's context, but not the Agent's sequence manager. Consequently qmf console objects caused memory leaks. With this update the code has been corrected and the memory leak of object instances in the Python console no longer occurs.


The qmfv2 utility did not provide a way to determine via a pollable file descriptor if a new event was available. Consequently more processor intensive methods were used. With this update a new, optional, feature has been added, "qmf_fd". It is a file descriptor that is readable if, and only if, there is at least one qmf event to be processed.
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated qpid-qmf packages, which fix this bug and adds this enhancement.
