[snips-users] hostmon.local proposal
I write local monitors fairly freqently. When upgrade time comes, ~snips/bin and hostmon-osclients get wiped out and I have to re-patch in all my stuff.
I would like to propose a local hook system for hostmon so that I don't have to patch
Here is the pseudocode:
in bin/hostmon-osclients/hostmon-client: After we: - set the array of tests - determine O/S type - 'require' the local o/s file
Then the new bit: - test for a readable $SNIPSHOME/hostmon.local - if it exists, load it.
the file will have two parts: - an array of test names to be added to the one already loaded - the perl code for the tests.
