Getting closer to pushing FreeBSD process priorites up into CFEngine
Saturday, August 9 2014
In auto-nice daemon vs. CFEngine, I made had made a patch to
sysutils/cfengine35 to enable finer grain process priority control on my FreeBSD servers. Today, I decided that I
should see about getting it into the upstream, since 3.6 had already been released and more recently 3.6.1 has appeared.
Given the major problems I had when I accidentally upgraded myself from 3.4.4 to 3.5.0, because I had been using
sysutils/cfengine… I had decided a while back to switch to using sysutils/cfengine35 so that I can make the
leap to 3.6 on my own timeline (which could be never, though probably not since there’s some interesting new things in it
that I will want to try eventually ) Though I still have a lot of other things I want/need to do before I get
So, I forked the current ‘GH: cfengine/core’, and looked at making my little patch. Things are a little different now.
Interesting that NetBSD has its args for /bin/ps changed since 3.5.3, and not that different than what I had come up
