I've noticed an funny 'issue' with Zenoss 4.2.5 on Centos, having setup a default gateway in the network settings. I was wondering if aynone else had come across this or had an idea of what is causing the problem?
It seems that certain zenoss activities take a lot longer to complete once a default gateway has been added to the centos network setup (by adding GATEWAY=<ipaddresshere> to the /etc/sysconfig/network file and restarting network services / rebooting the server.
The simplest symptom i've found is that running zenoss status now seems to take several minutes to return with anything whereas without the gateway it takes about 5 to 10 seconds to report back the status of all the daemons etc...
Removing the gateway returns the performance of zenoss status to 5 to 10 seconds again.
Zenoss stops and starts also seem to take a lot longer and the modelling of devices takes a lot longer to get going than prior to the gateway setup.
Using some debug in the /opt/zenoss/etc/zenoss script has pointed to the fact that the zenoss script seems to wait a long time whilst the script calls 'zenpackdaemons --list' to get a list of the daemons but I'm out of ideas of why having a default gateway set should affect things in this way?
Can anyone shed any light on why having a network gateway should cause such an issue?
