Bug Description

Package: munin-node

Host has no /var/log/syslog file

Error output:

 [WARNING] munin_set_var_loc: Setting unknown option 'value' at <removed for security>;<removed for security>;postfix_mailvolume;delivered:


Default log file does not exist and no override logfile set results in invalid output (wrong name label)

Default log file:
my $LOGDIR = $ENV{'logdir'} || '/var/log';
my $LOGFILE = $ENV{'logfile'} || 'syslog';

Graph config callout:

if ( $ARGV[0] and $ARGV[0] eq "config" ) {
    print "graph_title Postfix bytes throughput\n";
    print "graph_args --base 1000 -l 0\n";
    print "graph_vlabel bytes / \${graph_period}\n";
    print "graph_scale yes\n";
    print "graph_category postfix\n";
    print "volume.label throughput\n";
    print "volume.type DERIVE\n";
    print "volume.min 0\n";
    exit 0;

Output on log file missing:

if (! -f $logfile) {
    print "delivered.value U\n";
    exit 1;

    exit 1;
