Updated sblim-gather packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The sblim-gather package (Standards Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability Performance Data Gatherer Base) contains agents and control programs for gathering and providing performance data and CIM (Common Information Model) Providers.
The sblim-gather package has been upgraded to upstream version 2.2.3, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#633991
Previously, CIM Metrics providers specific to IBM System z were missing from the sblim-gather package, preventing proper functionality of the package on that architecture. This update ensures that the CIM Metrics providers are now properly included in the IBM System z packages, with the result that full functionality is now provided.
The sblim-gather-provider package is DSP1053 compliant and advertises this via the Linux_MetricRegisteredProfile class under the root/interop namespace. Prior to this update, the registration of this class and provider was missing from the package, preventing communication with the class via CIM object managers. This bug has been fixed, and now the appropriate provider for the Linux_MetricRegisteredProfile class is properly registered under the root/interop namespace.
Previously, the sblim-gather init script was incorrectly placed in the /etc/init.d directory, causing difficulties during installation of the package. With this update, the init script is correctly placed in the /etc/rc.d/init.d directory, thus fixing this bug.
Previously, the sblim-gather init script exit status codes were incorrect in two scenarios: when restarting a service as a non-privileged user and when passing an invalid argument. This bug has been fixed, and all exit status codes of the sblim-gather init script are now correct.
All users of sblim-gather are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
