option to disable fam

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.6 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I'd like to store my bcfg2 repository on a NAS via NFS. Fam doesn't seem to work very well on NFS. I keep having to restart bcfg2-server after it stops talking to clients when I store the repo on NFS.

Do you have any recommendations for how to disable fam?

We can implement a pseudo-fam driver that does a single inventory of the filesystem and then never produces more events. Which FAM driver are you using, gamin or fam? and if so, have you configured it to poll? That might help. Also, when your server process gets stuck, can you strace it to see what it is doing? thanks..

James Yang added this capability in [bd8efd295e7e28c8d8b6c76f818087ee27e7e23b] (SVN r4875) through the use of a psuedo fam monitor.
