Watcher.py?

The watcher.py URL is included in the kickstart file generation ($kickstart_done) of cobbler-0.6.4, but I don't appear to find the watcher.py script included in the src rpm.

Should the $kickstart_done directive not be included in the kickstart_fc6.ks files?



Watcher.py is not a real file, it is just something we look for in the
Apache logs for "cobbler check".


There /used/ to be a watcher.py, so that is largely historical.

I have been tempted to change it to "THIS_FILE_DOES_NOT_EXIST" so people
don't have to ask the question :)

Watcher.py?
 
Ok...

I thought that might be the issue why "cobbler status" does not appear to complete the status field ...

[root@hpmgmt ~]# cobbler status

192.168.0.1 | ? | ? | Fri Nov 30 10:54:36 2007 | ? | 5

Previously there was a fancy (relatively speaking) mod_python solution I
wrote that gave really good kickstart status. The problem was it didn't
work very well
on older RHEL, which we wanted to support. So I took it out, and I'm not
quite as happy with what we have now.


It's on the list of things to overhaul in the future, but I hadn't got
many requests for better status tracking recently, so it's been a bit
down on the priority list

as compared to some new features.

We could possibly just show Last Request and "Started" times, which
might be enough.

We'd love this feature. Tracking is high on our list of requirements. I
have put it in my lengthy email regarding thoughts on author/authen
which should appear in your inbox shortly. Just saw this and thought I'd
highlight it whilst it was on your mind =)

Interested enough to implement something, perhaps?

Wink, wink, nudge nudge?
