All,

As part of fixing https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=632277, I
update the pulp agent to publish heartbeats on the bus. The pulp server
collects statistics on consumer (agent) availability. This information
is available through the REST API:

/services/agent/status/

Is this on the pulp server? Does agent == machine?



The heartbeat interval is configured in client.conf. So, if you're
running out of dev-env and not symlinking this, you will need to add:

[client]
heartbeat=10

Or, whatever interval makes sense to you.

In either case, you'll need to restart goferd.

The CLI takes the agent status into consideration when doing operations
that involve running commands on the agent. Namely, package install. If
the agent appears to be unavailable, the user is advised and given
choices. The agent status is also visible when running 'consumer
info|list'.


interesting... very cool.
