Description Chris Gordon 2018-01-24 22:57:54 UTC
telegraf supports gathering stats from fail2ban via fail2ban-client, which is installed in /usr/local/bin.  Since /usr/local/bin is not in the PATH set by rc.  A log entry such as below is generated in /var/log/telegraf.log

2018-01-24T22:53:00Z E! Error in plugin [inputs.fail2ban]: fail2ban-client not found: verify that fail2ban is installed and that fail2ban-client is in your PATH

I have fixed this by adding "PATH=${PATH}:/usr/local/bin" to /etc/rc.conf, but it seems more appropriate that this is in the telegraf rc script.
Comment 1 Palle Girgensohn freebsd_committer 2018-01-26 00:38:24 UTC

That just half the story. From what I can see, the executable is not named fail2ban-client but actually fail2ban-python? But I guess that's beside the point. If the executable is installed, it should be found. Reasonable.

Just curious, though, which port supplies the fail2ban-client executable?

Comment 2 Chris Gordon 2018-01-26 01:10:09 UTC
I installed py27-fail2ban via pkg.  I use "latest" with my pkg config and currently have fail2ban version 0.10.1_1.

% pkg info -l py27-fail2ban

% find /usr/local/bin -name fail2ban\*

I'm assuming the py36-fail2ban package does the same thing, but I've not checked it.

Thanks for maintaining this port.  On a side note, I put in a request for telegraf to also report wired memory (request 3628) which is in their head now and looks like its slated to go in the 1.6 release.
Comment 3 Chris Gordon 2018-01-28 02:14:07 UTC
I have also just run into the similar problem with the smart input (for smartmontool).  smartctl is in /usr/local/sbin which telegraf can't find since it's not part of rc's default path.
