Description Steven Hartland freebsd_committer 2016-10-12 11:44:43 UTC
Only stderr is redirected in telegraf rc script resulting in a hang when trying to restart it remotely e.g.
ssh mymachine /usr/local/etc/rc.d/telegraf restart

The fix is to also redirect stdout as shown by the patch below

New revision: 426880
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/426880

  Update telegraf to 1.1.1

  Make sure both stdin and stderr are redirected since daemon(8) forks and this
  would otherwise leave scripted restarts haning. See #213412 and #214643 for a
  more complete discussion.
