Bug Description


Here's my proposed first charm: txstatsd.

I'm sure it needs a lot of work, and it should be packaged, but I wanted to push it up for review.


It requires graphite as well for the "carbon" relation. I have an even crappier version of that charm

- needs some sort of license (I just grab them from other charms)

maybe a stopper(?):
- metadata says requires carbon, but there're no hooks for that relation. Sorry, I don't know if that's a stopper for actual promulgation or not. Does the charm do a whole lot without that hook?


- metadata:description... we should copy the summary again at the very least. maybe even blank?

- no need to open internal ports (8125) unless you intend for them to be external someday. Everything's open internally for the foreseeable future.

- maybe use an upstart script for your service to survive reboots?

- maybe pick some standard place to install the service (/usr/local, /opt, or even /usr)? It'd make it easier for someone else to come along and see the branch, scripts, pid-files, logs, etc when debugging.

I hear u1 have this puppetised now, so I was thinking about reworking
these charms to be based on that.

I'll take some time over the vacation to pick these up again and try and
get them to an acceptable state.

I've done another pass at this charm and fixed most of the things that Mark suggested,
as well as fixing it for upstream changes and adding some other improvements.
