Release 2017_026 (2017-11-02)

Impact

  • [NixOS] nginx will be restarted.

NixOS platform

  • Always restart Telegraf after a crash. This will result in less noise in monitoring and alerting (#28776).
  • Always restart Kibana after a crash (#28795).
  • Monitor %steal CPU value to ensure we do not miss completely overloaded hosts (#28296).
  • Basic role for RabbitMQ (#28707).
  • Ignore freshclam’s exit status so that the systemd check doesn’t alert (#28236).
  • The uptime check was never alerting. Fix it with hopefully reasonable settings for automated alerting and human awareness (#28837).
  • Update wkhtmltopdf to 0.12.4 (#28838).
  • Update nginx to 0.10.3 (#28890).
  • Allow users to run iotop via sudo.
  • haproxy: set startup retry interval to 5s (#28920).

Gentoo platform

  • Improve outside connectivity check (#28798).
  • Improve firewall rules (#28288).
  • Silence runscript warnings (#28401).
