RAM Disk - Potential RRD Restore Trouble



  • Noticed recently after a reboot that the RRD backup file /cf/conf/rrd.tgz was gone.  However the DHCP leases file /cf/conf/dhcpleases.tgz was still there.  Seems like this would be vulnerable to RRD loss if there were a system crash before the next backup cycle completes.

    That wouldn't be a "vulnerability" in the sense of the term the way it's used in development.

    It would be susceptible to, or capable of, data loss, but to call it a vulnerability implies it's a security problem, which it's not.

    Either way, seems that a fix was committed for that overnight, it should be in snapshots soon.

    Saw the fix.  Will test it later.  Fully expect that it will correct the issue.
