This adds an optional
default_slaves parameter that sets the
slaves value at the top level of the
Targets section of the smokeping config. The top-level
slaves value is inherited by all of the targets, but can be overridden in individual targets.
This change adds a new manage_datadir argument to selectively
prevent the management of the data dir.
The scenario I ran into needing this was when using a master/slave
setup. The remote data comes in via Apache with the www-data user
and it requires a setfacl entry as documented at
or you'll see permission denied errors in the log file.
Ideally this module would be extended to support master/slave better,
but this will help in the meantime.
Configure smokeping in slave mode with a systemd dropin file. This is the way to configure smokeping slaves when using modern distribution packages.
