An update that solves four vulnerabilities and has two
fixes is now available. It includes two new package
versions.

Description:


pcp was updated to version 3.6.10 which fixes security
issues and also brings a lot of new features.

*

Update to pcp-3.6.10.

o Transition daemons to run under an unprivileged
account. o Fixes for security advisory CVE-2012-5530:
tmpfile flaws; (bnc#782967). o Fix pcp(1) command
short-form pmlogger reporting. o Fix pmdalogger error
handling for directory files. o Fix pmstat handling of odd
corner case in CPU metrics. o Correct the python ctype used
for pmAtomValue 32bit ints. o Add missing RPM spec
dependency for python-ctypes. o Corrections to pmdamysql
metrics units. o Add pmdamysql slave status metrics. o
Improve pmcollectl error messages. o Parameterize
pmcollectl CPU counts in interrupt subsys. o Fix generic
RPM packaging for powerpc builds. o Fix python API use of
reentrant libpcp string routines. o Python code backporting
for RHEL5 in qa and pmcollectl. o Fix edge cases in
capturing interrupt error counts.
*

Update to pcp-3.6.9.

o Python wrapper for the pmimport API o Make
sar2pcp work with the sysstat versions from RHEL5, RHEL6,
and all recent Fedora versions (which is almost all current
versions of sysstat verified). o Added a number of
additional metrics into the importer for people starting to
use it to analyse sar data from real customer incidents. o
Rework use of C99 "restrict" keyword in pmdalogger (Debian
bug: 689552) o Alot of work on the PCP QA suite, special
thanks to Tomas Dohnalek for all his efforts there. o Win32
build updates o Add "raw" disk active metrics so that
existing tools like iostat can be emulated o Allow sar2pcp
to accept XML input directly (.xml suffix), allowing it to
not have to run on the same platform as the sadc/sadf that
originally generated it. o Add PMI error codes into the
PCP::LogImport perl module. o Fix a typo in pmiUnits man
page synopsis section o Resolve pmdalinux ordering issue in
NUMA/CPU indom setup (Redhat bug: 858384) o Remove unused
pmcollectl imports (Redhat bug: 863210) o Allow event
traces to be used in libpcp interpolate mode
*

Update to pcp-3.6.8.

o Corrects the disk/partition identification for
the MMC driver, which makes disk indom handling correct on
the Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/) o Several
minor/basic fixes for pmdaoracle. o Improve pmcollectl
compatibility. o Make a few clarifications to pmcollectl.1.
o Improve python API test coverage. o Numerous updates to
the test suite in general. o Allow pmda Install scripts to
specify own dso name again. o Reconcile spec file
differences between PCP flavours. o Fix handling of
multiple contexts with a remote namespace. o Core socket
interface abstractions to support NSS (later). o Fix man
page SYNOPSIS section for pmUnpackEventRecords. o Add
--disable-shared build option for static builds.
*

Update to pcp-3.6.6.

o Added the python PMAPI bindings and an initial
python client in pmcollectl. Separate, new package exists
for python libs for those platforms that split out packages
(rpm, deb). o Added a pcp-testsuite package for those
platforms that might want this (rpm, deb again, mainly) o
Re-introduced the pcp/qa subdirectory in pcp and deprecated
the external pcpqa git tree. o Fix potential buffer
overflow in pmlogger host name handling. o Reworked the
configure --prefix handling to be more like the rest of the
open source world. o Ensure the __pmDecodeText ident
parameter is always set Resolves Red Hat bugzilla bug
#841306.
