RRD Data mysteriously stopped recording

  • Hello,

    Running 2.0.3, and the RRD Data has stopped.

    It seems that it happened about the same time as I installed the BandwidthD package to try and monitor usage by specific ips.

    Any other ideas, or possible courses of action?

    edit: removing the package had no effect :/, although I confirmed that the data stopped recording (on all tabs except quality) on that day

    This message is in the log the day it stopped working: (2x)
    lighttpd[24734]: (mod_fastcgi.c.2543) unexpected end-of-file (perhaps the fastcgi process died): pid: 30250 socket: unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket-4

  • I tried uninstalling the package, but that didn't help.

    Afterwards I upgraded to 2.1-release and after rebooting it was recording RRD data again

  • I also did the same thing.  I installed BandwidthD around 9:30am (judging from BandwidthD's daily graph) yesterday, and around the same time RRD stopped updating any of its graphs.

    After reading your post, I checked the system logs for "lighttpd" entries, and saw the following:

    Dec 1 09:23:32	lighttpd[30518]: (mod_fastcgi.c.2543) unexpected end-of-file (perhaps the fastcgi process died): pid: 31140 socket: unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket-1
    Dec 1 09:23:32	lighttpd[30518]: (mod_fastcgi.c.3282) child exited, pid: 31140 status: 0
    Dec 1 09:23:33	lighttpd[30518]: (mod_fastcgi.c.3329) response not received, request sent: 1394 on socket: unix:/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket-1 for /pkg_edit.php?xml=bandwidthd.xml&id=0, closing connection

    I was going to post a question about this earlier, but now my RRD graphs seem to be updating again.  I'm just missing a chunk between ~9:30am yesterday and ~7:30am this morning.

    In the future, is there something that can be done to keep the process that logs RRD data running?  Or notify me if it goes down?
