Comment 3 uros 2016-10-01 21:10:29 UTC
Anything to fix here while I'm working on upgrade to the latest release?
Comment 4 Rainbow 2018-05-14 19:58:46 UTC
Is there anything this port is waiting on at the moment? It's been sitting here for 2 years. I'm sure the maintainer would like to see some movement, or a response to their question.
We don't look very good when a new maintainer submits and sees no feedback for years.
I'm happy to help test the new port if need be, and if Koobs is too busy, let's get this reassigned to another committer once it's good to go.
Comment 5 Rainbow 2018-05-14 20:01:46 UTC
(In reply to uros from comment #3)
I'll take a look at the shar you submitted when I can, try and build the port, and provide what feedback I'm able to :)
I'm not a committer, so I can't actually get your port in the tree, but I can help make sure it's ready for commit once a committer is available.
Comment 6 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2018-05-15 03:49:47 UTC
Apologies, not sure how I missed this, thanks for the ping Rainbow. 

Reset assignee so someone else can take it, I'll stay CC'd in case I can take care of it.

Port needs review and QA confirmation. I note also that the datadog agent is now at 6.x and build using golang, though it appears the 5.x versions is still supported.
Comment 7 uros 2018-05-15 08:01:35 UTC
I started to work on 6.x but then stopped. I'll do my best to finish it and upload new version. I'm a bit swamped atm so it might take a few days.
Comment 8 Arnaud de Prelle 2019-01-08 14:32:59 UTC

I really would like to see this port in port tree as well :-)

I'm now using version 5.9.1 taken from GH and it works like a charm for regular system metrics.

Why is it not in ports ATM? Works like a charm on my Machine.
Comment 10 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2020-08-12 13:27:06 UTC
^Triage: Someone should QA (portlint, poudriere) attachment 174362 [details] and confirm it passes, updating the patch to address any issues if necessary

^Triage: Looks like it needs updating to 6.x at least
Comment 12 Ryan MacLean 2020-09-07 17:47:54 UTC
The source repo now works with 6.X - worth updating this port, or is starting a new one the best approach?
Comment 13 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-09-10 15:42:23 UTC
I'm happy to pick this up, precisely which version/repo/branch should I pull from?

https://github.com/urosgruber/dd-agent-FreeBSD/issues/19 mentions a v7.
Comment 14 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-10-22 21:00:58 UTC
thanks uros for the work here! Other than a few tidy-ups this is a fantastic port. I'm tweaking it for v7 & USES=go:modules but other than that LGTM.

on v7, there's 1 (docker related) dependency that doesn't fetch correctly;
help wanted on figuring out how to manage that. Is it sufficient to remove the line from modules, and the invoke ... command parameters?


I'll add a patch tomorrow from this branch after some further work. Assuming that
works, it needs to respect hier(7) to land in ports. Hopefully we can do this
with some gentle patches in the source.

assuming /usr/local/bin/dd-agent or similar, does it make more sense to use
/var/run/datadog/... or /var/db/datadog/... for example for its runtime files?
Comment 15 Lars Liedtke 2020-10-23 10:00:18 UTC
I tried building this Port and it fails, because it has got python2'isms that won't work with python3.

Also I tried to build Version7 from the official repo and I have got the same problems as you Dave with things depending on cgroups. Help would be appreciated, if possible, because we have got a customer, who wants to use datadog on our proServer and I'd like to give him a different answer than "not possible in FreeBSD". 

Do you think it might be worth approaching the project on github and ask for help? I'd be willing to do that.
Comment 17 uros 2020-10-26 07:39:26 UTC
Thanks Dave for moving this forward. I've done some work myself over the weekend and was able to prepare working version 7.18.1. I'll open PR on github repo so if you're ok to move conversation there just to clear some of my questions. 

I'll do my best to upgrade it even further until I hit this cgroup issue. I believe it was included in 7.20.x or something.

Comment 19 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2020-11-11 20:31:13 UTC
many many thanks Uros for his patience on this patch, which was submitted
long before I was even a committer, and migrating the patch from python
to golang in the meantime.

Tested OK on poudriere 13.0-CURRENT amd64, 12.2R amd64
Failed hard on arm64 due to various missing cgo plumbing bits.
If somebody is interested in addressing that I can make the log
and suitable h/w accessible.
